Overview

Is there any sexier sound than Astrud Gilberto's breathy singing on "Girl from Ipanema"? The runner-up would have to be Stan Getz's equally sultry tenor sax on the very same track. Every note of Getz/Gilberto, is heavy with tropical sensuality. Propelled by a lilting bossa nova beat, the incomparable Getz and Brazilian vocalist and guitarist Joao Gilberto construct songs that sound innocent and coy, restrained and passionate. Brazilian vocalist and guitarist Joao Gilberto's elegantly understated delivery and gentle phrasing play off the charming lack of polish in his wife Astrud's untrained voice, while Getz blows gorgeous clouds of melody about them. Thirty-five years later, however, "Girl" and the companion pieces like "Corcovado," "Desafinado," and "O Grande Amor" ensure that Getz/Gilberto still shimmers -- softly, slowly, gently -- every spin on your stereo.
