Hadn't heard this one before, Jobim featuring a Rhodes as the main instrument on "Brazil" for his Stone Flower album.  Jobim used a Rhodes on the album Tide here and there, but this is pretty prominent.  Recorded March-May 1970, so most likely a silvertop with teardrop hammer but remote chance it might be a felt cube tip:

Brazil (Aka Aquarela do Brasil) ยท Antonio Carlos Jobim

Alternate take pretty different and interesting too

Interesting if other CTI records at the time were using the same Rhodes

When you find the stereo version on YouTube at 4 million views... and realize this was an anthem for quite a few Brazilian folks and others!
