A beautiful copy of a Jazz/Bossa Nova classic.
Background: Released in 1964, Getz/Gilberto caught lightning in a bottle and caught America at just the right moment to take advantage of the Bossa Nova craze that lasted for the next three years or so.
Helped by the pop hit, “The Girl from Ipanema,” the album sold more than two million copies and became one of the biggest-selling Jazz albums of all time.
One of the biggest-selling jazz albums of all time, not to mention bossa nova’s finest moment, Getz/Gilberto trumped Jazz Samba by bringing two of bossa nova’s greatest innovators — guitarist/singer João Gilberto and composer/pianist Antonio Carlos Jobim — to New York to record with Stan Getz. The results were magic. … This music has nearly universal appeal; it’s one of those rare jazz records about which the purist elite and the buying public are in total agreement. Beyond essential.
