Featuring songs from Antonio Carlos Jobim including “Triste”, “Wave”, and “So Danco Samba”, (or “Jazz ‘N Samba”), and this Cole Porter hit:

Featuring what Charles Champlin of the Los Angeles Times said in the liner notes, “…that first day of spring and of autumn, when night and day are in perfect balance.”
