Elis & Tom is a bossa nova album recorded by Brazilian singer Elis Regina and singer/songwriter Antonio Carlos Jobim, released in 1974.

Recorded over a 16-day period at MGM Studios in Los Angeles, California, the album was an old wish of Elis, who always wanted to record a full album of Jobim's songs with him - the dream finally became true in 1974, when Elis was celebrating her 10th anniversary as an artist of Philips Records. The label approved the project as a gift for her.

In 2004, the 30th anniversary of the initial release, a remastered Special Edition was released on DVD Audio which included a 5.1 multi-channel surround mix from the original master tapes.

Reception

The Allmusic review by Thom Jurek awards the album 4.5 stars and states "This beautiful — and now legendary — recording date between iconic Brazilian vocalist Elis Regina and composer, conductor, and arranger Tom Jobim is widely regarded as one of the greatest Brazilian pop recordings."


It was ranked 11th on Rolling Stone's Top 100 Brazilian albums of all time.
