Stan Getz & Joao Gilberto Getz/Gilberto Single-Layer Stereo SACD
Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Albums of All Time - Rated 447/500!
This Single-Layer SACD can only be played on a Super Audio CD Player!
If there is any album that can be thought of as a 'genre defining', this one is. It is also probably the best-known and most popular bossa nova record of all times. Inspired by great album 'Jazz Samba' by Stan Getz and Charlie Byrd, João and Tom joined Stan Getz on March18 -19, 1963 in USA, to create the history with this album. All songs are great, arrangements are what most people think bossa nova should sound and it contains probably the best of all times bossa nova sax solos by Stan Getz on Prá Machucar Meu Coração and O Grande Amor. Singing in English, a new star was also raised: Astrud Gilberto, by then just a housewife and the first song that she ever recorded would later become all the time best known bossa nova evergreen: Garota de Ipanema - The Girl From Ipanema. This is album for every Brazilian music fan.

||Best SACD Ive heard
|The original master was extraordinarily well recorded. Great dynamics, great signal to noise ratio, ALL of which is preserved in this SACD. While the female singer is only OK, she is the best-recorded female voice Ive heard. This is a great reference SACD.|
