Employing a more exotic Brazilian feel on Sleeping Gypsy, with lush orchestration courtesy of veteran jazz arranger and conductor Claus Ogerman, Franks moved his acoustic guitar work to the background to create a romantic sound with no sappiness. With Down in Brazil and, particularly, Antonio's Song, his ode to Antonio Carlos Jobim, Franks was doing with Brazilian music for the rock crowd in the '70s what Stan Getz did for the jazz crowd in the '60s.
