Orfeu Da Conceiçao is a Brazilian play inspired by the Orpheus legend and written by Vinicius De Moraes. Vinicius made a musical out of it in 1956 with the help of Jobim, Roberto Palva (singer) and Luiz Bonfa (guitar). Orfeu Da Conceiçao is a really ambitious work that goes beyond the realm of bossa nova to touch classical music and jazz. The first track, Ouverture, starts like classical music and then switches into a bossa nova. Eu O Meu Amor mixes big band jazz with samba. Minologo De Orfeu is a poem recited by Moraes himself. You can hear as well for the first time the classic Se Todos Fossem Iguais A Voce. Jobim and Bonfa worked a second time on the Orpheus myth when they wrote the soundtrack of the Orfeu Negro movie, based on the same Moraes play. It's just the kind of record that has seminal and masterpiece written all over it.
