Overview

Astrud Gilberto, the Brazilian canary with the voice like honey and diction that defied belief, has been compiled many times on Verve, but rarely as well as on her entry in 2003's The Diva Series. A 21-track of her prime decade, the '60s, this one includes all of the classics associated with her: "The Girl From Ipanema," "Agua de Beber," "Corcovado (Quiet Nights of Quiet Stars)," "So Nice (Summer Samba)," and "Dindi." Not all of her LPs have been reissued on CD (in the States), so the compilers also added tracks that may surprise a few Gilberto fans, like "Eu e Voce" and "Canto de Ossanha (Let Go)."

Astrud Gilberto is among an elite fraternity of singers. A songstress who's voice is identified as the signature of a style of music. Bossa Nova came onto the American scene in the early sixties and is closely associated with that era. This collection is a brillant example of the optimism and vibrancy of the sixties but due to sheer artistry and beauty it is a timeless treat. This gifted singer's sensually melodic;captivating vocals will transport any listener to many places and through many moods. Is it worth the ticket? Absolutely!
