Description

Elis & Toots is a 1969 bossa nova album by Brazilian singer Elis Regina and Belgian jazz musician Toots Thielemans recorded at a studio in Sweden and released on Philips Records. It features Toots Thielemans on harmonica, whistling and vocalizing playing guitar alongside. Thielemans and Elis Regina are actually heard on just four songs together, they both sit out on four of the twelve tracks. The accompanying quintet throughout comprises pianist Antônio Adolfo, Roberto Menescal, guitarist and the composer of four songs on the album, bassist Jurandir Duarte, Wilson das Neves on drums and Hermes Contesini on percussion. On three tracks Claes Rosendahl wrote arrangements for an additional string section.

Like Elis Regina’s following album In London, recorded three month later, it was produced for the European market and released only there. In Brazil the album was not released until 1978, under their full names, Elis Regina e Toots Thielemans, and titled Honeysuckle Rose / Aquarela do Brasil (as was a subsequent release in 1983). The first digitally release on CD was issued in 1998 as Aquarela do Brasil.
