Thank you for the beautiful music! 

No one performs like this anymore. Everything now is overproduced in the studio. He was sublime.

Another GIANT has left us. Rest in Peace.

I was interested that Astrud made her recording debut on their most well known song, but her next period recordings covering funk rock e.g. early Chicago are more adventurous. And then their daughter Bebel is also a very good diva. Joao may be a a bit overshadowed by the Gilberto mujeres.

Getz/Gilberto is one of the greatest albums in the jazz scene. One of a kind.
