This Tom Jobim concert from the 1980s features Gal Costa and many other special guests. While there is a nostalgic glow to the set it is also one of the Brazilian mainstay's very best albums. That's because it finds the balance between laidback and energetic and the stripped down arrangements top some of the orchestral backings that are found on Jobim studio recordings. You have to hear the yacht romance "Two Kites," which gets definitive treatment here.
