Background: Released in 1966, Sylvia Telles Sings the Wonderful Songs of Antonio Carlos Jobim was the ninth LP by Brazilian singer Sylvia Telles.
Sylvia Telles devoted much of her career to interpreting the songs of Antonio Carlos Jobim; in fact, more than half the songs she did on record were Jobim covers. Here’s an entire album of them, recorded in the mid-’60s, not long before her premature death in a car accident. Of course, by this time Jobim was far more famous in the northern hemisphere than he’d been when Telles first cut Jobim material in the mid-’50s. Indications are that perhaps Telles was eyeing the international market as well, since seven of the twelve songs were sung in English (though the remainder were sung in Portuguese). Regardless of what tongue she’s using, it’s sumptuously produced mid-’60s bossa nova, delivered well whether in her native language or in English (which she sings fluently).
