Biography

To a Brazilian mother and German father, Astrud Gilberto was born in Bahia, still Brazil's most Africanized state. With her two sisters she grew up in Rio de Janeiro, where she met and married singer-guitarist-songwriter João Gilberto, one of bossa-nova's originating stylists. In the early 1960s, when that Brazilian music, with its cooling melodies and hot, hip style emigrated ... Read more in Amazon's Astrud Gilberto Store

This is by far the best Astrud Gilberto compilation I've heard. Don't waste your time with any other collection - buy this, it's got the BEST live takes and studio recordings. A must.

By The Guardian TOP 50 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
This is a first-class compilation of Astrud Gilberto's greatest hits, kicking off with `The Girl from Ipanema' as the first of 14 mainly bossa nova numbers including `Agua de Beber', `It might as well be spring' and `Take me to Aruanda.'

All the pieces here are from the golden era of bossa nova in the 1960s. About half the songs are sung in Portuguese and the rest in English, with Astrud's delightful Brazilian accent and clean, tuneful, perfect-for-jazz voice. The musician line-up features Astrud's husband Joao on guitar, Stan Getz, Antonio Carlos Jobim, the great Gil Evans (who did so much great work with Miles Davis) and Walter Wanderley.

It's a truly delightful album with a relaxed summer-day feel and first-class studio production values, infused with joy. It's perfect any time you need to lift your spirits, ideal as dinner party background music or to accompany you on a lazy summer afternoon.

These songs never age, and if you want to own just one album of the best from the golden age of bossa nova, this would be an excellent choice.
