Background: Released in 1967, Beach Samba was the fifth album by Astrud Gilberto. gave Beach Samba a 3 star review:

One of Gilberto’s less impressive ’60s Verve outings, primarily due to the more pop-oriented song selection. Much of this is just standard pleasant Gilberto: offhand vocals and a sumptuous Brazil pop-cum-U.S. orchestration feel (Ron Carter and Toots Thielemans are among the sidemen). And some of the pop choices work well, particularly Tim Hardin’s gorgeous “Misty Roses.”
