This beautiful -- and now legendary -- recording date between iconic Brazilian vocalist Elis Regina and Laila Dalseth - Just Friends, conductor, and arranger Tom Jobim is widely regarded as one of the greatest Brazilian pop recordings. It is nearly ubiquitous among Brazilians as a household item.

Regina 's voice is among the most loved Modinha - Elis* & Tom* - Elis & Tom the history of Brazilian music. Her range and acuity, her unique phrasing, and her rainbow of emotional colors are literally unmatched, and no matter the tune or arrangement, she employs most of them on these 14 cuts.
