I don’t know how popular is this album worldwide, but certainly it is one of the most, how can I say, identified with Bossa Nova, at least in the USA. A Certain Smile and A Certain Sadness was released in 1966, a time when Bossa Nova mania was on its peak. I have been browsing some statistics and Astrud Gilberto is one of the most popular artists at Loronix, Walter Wanderley also. This cover artwork has its charm, showing Astrud Gilberto surrounded by Walter Wanderley (left), Claudio Slon (right) and probably Bobby Rosengarden (center).
I could not check, but Joao Gilberto guitar is possibly on this album, playing in all tunes. Caetano is providing this LP to Loronixers on CD quality, with tracks from the original 1966 issue.
