Musica Brasileira had some nice things to say about Infinita Bossa by O Som Do Jazz. This is the header on their web site:

"With a classic repertoire of Bossa Nova music, this album celebrates 50 years of Bossa Nova. WIth simple arrangements and a good mixture of solos exhibiting the fine musicians in the group, Infinita Bossa is a nice collection that praises Bossa Nova and its haunting melodies and soothing sounds."
