For this 1974 LP Jobim got together with the immensely popular Elis Regina (1945 – 1982).
Known affectionately as furacão (hurricane) or pimentinha (little pepper), Elis sold over 80 million albums. Her premature death sent the whole of Brazil into mourning, and a memorial event at São Paulo’s Estádio do Morumbi attracted 100,000 people.
This LP is widely considered to be one of the greatest Brazilian records, and in 2001, Águas de Março was named as the all-time best Brazilian song in a poll of more than 200 journalists, musicians and other artists conducted by leading newspaper, Folha de São Paulo.
Elis openly disliked Tom Jobim , referring to him as a bore,dim-witted, and an old fogey whilst they were working on the LP . However the combination did revive her career, and if you view the video of them performing together you would never guess!
