Brazilian siren Ana Caram shares this "retro"-spective musical performance in celebration of the brilliant marriage between Brazilian song and America's "cool jazz". The result? A very cool glimpse into the bossa nova scene of a 1960s jazz club, and with Chesky's state-of-the-art recording technology, you have the best seat in the house.

Ana Caram is an excellent singer and guitarist of Brazilian music, but this set lacks any real surprises. She only plays guitar on one song, sticking to singing while being backed by a rhythm section and the saxophones of Paulo Levi. The selections all date from the 1960s (other than her original "Pura Luz") and Caram is mostly cast in the role of Astrud Gilberto, performing Jobim tunes (including "Desafinado," "Corcovado," and "Triste") and other tunes from the era, including "Blue Bossa," "Fly Me to the Moon," and Baden Powell's "So Por Amor." The results are pleasant but very predictable, with no real chances being taken nor any fresh light shone on the veteran warhorses.
