YOUNG LOVE – THE MUSIC OF ANTONIO CARLOS JOBIM
• Sylvia Telles was the first female bossa nova singer; with Dolores Duran and Maysa, the most influential of her generation.
• She was the finest interpreter of the songs of one of the greatest songwriters of the twentieth century, the Brazilian master, Antonio Carlos Jobim, and she was his favourite vocalist.
• The centrepiece of this 29 track edition is Amor De Gente Moça (Young Love), Sylvia’s wonderful 1959 album devoted entirely to recordings of Jobim works and the first really complete showcase of the nascent bossa nova style which would soon revolutionise international popular music. It includes remarkable songs which the composer wrote with Sylvia’s voice specifically in mind, including her first major domestic hit, Dindi.
• Amor De Gente Moça, like so many of Brazil’s historic recordings is inexplicably out of print. Yet its importance as a landmark and a portent is undeniable. A showpiece for Jobim’s writing and a springboard for bossa nova at home, it cemented Sylvia’s popularity with Brazilian record-buyers and alerted North American record companies to her brilliance. Now, under the auspices of her husband and former label manager at Odeon and Elenco, Aloysio de Oliveira, she was beginning to record albums for the USA market with arrangers like Nelson Riddle and the legendary jazz guitarist Barney Kessel before, late in 1966 she lost her life in a tragic automobile accident.
