Format: Audio CD
Antonio Carlos Jobim goes down with Lennon/McCartney, Gershwin, Amstrong as one of the most influential songwriter/stylists of the 20th century.

To judge the album on its own merits is one thing. Getz turns in small but perfectly formed solos. Astrid Gilberto's voice is ravishing, complementing husband Joao's voice with that incredibly restrained vulnerability that is the essence of Bossa. It is an album of incredible tenderness and instrospection. The studio atmosphere is very intimate with an almost homespun quality. For me its a five star album in its own right.

However, this album has a far larger significance, in the way that Sargeant Pepper did. It changed everything and set off ripples that are still reverberating today.

Each of these songs have been covered thousands of times by thousands of artists and continue to be a top staple for jazz as its played all over the world. They have spilled over from jazz into other mediums. They introduced the wider world to the music of Brazil. Arguably the earlier Getz/Byrd, album put Brazil on the wider musical map but it was this album that exposed it in all its exotic glory.

Brazil is a land in which there are as many genres of music as there are in the rest of the world put together. The influence of Jobim and Bossa and their quintessence as captured in these songs, on this album, continues to be a point of departure and return for any number of musical offshoots in their home country, and beyond, to this very day.

From a musicological point of view the impact of this album is unprecedented. There is no other album which has so vividly alerted such a huge proportion of the world to what was going on in a previously little known lesser part of the world, the repercussions of which are still playing out, with vivacity and freshness, almost fifty years later.

I think you either have an innate love of this sort of music built in or it is something that will be totally lost on you ...if its there and you stumble across it you will never look back..
I already had 7 of the tracks on other cd's but the three i did'nt have are absolutely enchanting and worth the price on their own.
I could listen to this a thousand times and find something new in Stan Getz's incredible intonation every time.
If you hav'nt heard this stuff before,if you have an open mind,like walking on a deserted beach just where the sea meets the sand,if you love living ...you might just love this...
The best Bossa Nova there is.

Recently got into Jazz and researched a lot of the albums I bought. Getz/Gilberto kept cropping up and I was not sure, even when I started buying Stan Getz albums. I purchased Jazz Samba by Charlie Byrd and Stan Getz which I loved so progressed to Getz/Gilberto and was delighted with the purchase.

This is simply one of the best musical works of the sixties and years ahead. The poetry is unique, a blend of portuguese, african and american life. Deserves an huge constellation, not only five stars.

What a story, and what an album. Dragged into the studio to record her first vocals/song, Astrid, wife of the Gilberto in the title, produces one of jazz...no, music's...all time great performances. THE Bossa Nova song & album. Fantastic recording & beautiful, sensitive remastering.

This is probably the best Jazzy Samba albums I've heard, the deep soft voice of Joao Gilberto and quite striking Astrud, blended with a backdrop of Stan Getz sax....Its quite breathtaking....

This album is widely accepted as a classic of its type (that being a latin influenced west coast jazz). Because of that maybe some would argue it deserves 5 stars.
If you already have some Gilberto then this is a fine addition to your collection. As a first purchase of Getz/Gilbertos work or this genre I find the music on Jazz Samba by Getz/Gilberto a bit more entertaining

I've been listening to jazz for about 5 years now and wanting to broaden my taste i thought this would be a good direction to go. And what a direction to go!! The album has the ever popular Girl From Ipanema but the more i listen to it, the more i fall in love with the beauty of the other songs. Stan Getz ability is beyond words, as goes for Jobim on the guitar. The voices of Joau and Astrud Gilberto round the album off superbly causing you to hum and sing with them. This album has shown me there is more to bossa nova than i thought. So buy it, and then sit back, close your eyes and think of Brazil!!!
