Translation of above liner notes in Portuguese to English taken from Ruy Castro's book "Bossa Nova" (English translation), page 157:

"The album sleeve text that Tom Jobim wrote for 'Chega de Saudade' is perhaps the best that has ever been published in Brazil. Those thirteen lines were, in their own way, informative, revelatory, and even prophetic. His contemporaries didn't really understand much of what he said, but it was all there. 'João Gilberto is a bossa nova Bahian of 27,' Tom's text started out. . . . He continued 'In just a short time, he has influenced an entire generation of arrangers, guitarists, musicians and singers.'. . . 'Our greatest concern [. . .] was that Joãozinho should not be constrained by arrangements which inhibited his freedom, his natural agility, or his personal and nontransferable style, that is, his spontaneity'.

. . . 'Joãozinho took an active part in composing the arrangements contained on this album: his suggestions and ideas are all there.' . . . 'When Joãozinho accompanies himself, he plays his guitar. When he is accompanied by an orchestra, he becomes the orchestra. He [João] believed that there is always room for something new, different and pure that--although at first, may not seem like it--can become, as we say in the music industry, highly marketable.

P.S. Caymmi thinks so, too'"
