Caetano knows the business, I felt in love by this record since the first hearing. This is one of the 7 albums recorded by Phil Woods in a five days period in Italy, 2001. When I read about it, thought that this record would be a minor working on Phil Woods career. As usual, another great mistake of mine. It is a masterpiece. It was record as a duo with another great and very underrated Brazilian artist, Irio de Paula.

This is Phil Woods & Irio de Paula – Encontro (on Jobim) (2001), for Philology (Italy). This album landmark the first time he has played clarinet exclusively throughout a session. If you want to know more, Phil Wood was not familiar with the works of the Brazilian guitarist Irio de Paula prior the first day of recording, which should be a single day of recording since Phil recorded 7 albums in 5 days. Great record, very hard to find, released in Italy on a very limited edition. And it is all about Antonio Carlos Jobim. Tracks include:

01 – Eu Sei que Vou te Amar
02 – Samba do Aviao
03 – O Grande Amor
04 – Corcovado
05 – A Felicidade
06 – Brigas Nunca Mais
07 – Retrato em Branco e Preto
08 – Ana Luisa
09 – Days of Wine and Rose
10 – Autumn Leaves
