Beyond being one of the best-selling jazz albums of all-time, Getz/Gilberto also represents the crowning achievement of bossa nova. The illustrious coming together of American saxophonist Stan Getz and Brazilian guitarist/singer João Gilberto, alongside composer/pianist Antonio Carlos Jobim, was a watershed moment that brought the cool jazz, elegant sambas and the exotic flavours of Rio De Janeiro into the mainstream. Headlined by classics such as “The Girl From Ipanema” and “Corcovado” - both sung by João's wife Astrud Gilberto in her first professional recording session - Getz/Gilberto was a soft and sensuous album of unassailable beauty that embodied bossa nova's dreamy romanticism. This universally beloved record is the
rare album that will appeal to purists and the casual public alike.
