        Such a soothing album. Great for studying and writing papers. Definitely a must for jazz fans

          One of my favourite YouTube comments:
          “I still have my vinyl copy that I bought back in 1963 when I was 19, and living on a 50' sports-fisherman in Nassau in the Bahamas. We would play that album every day as the sun began its descent into the sea. Many friends in Nassau got to hear Antonio Carlos Jobim for the first time. Wonderful music brings back wonderful memories. Many thanks for the posting”

            I had the stereo CD reissue for years. I far prefer this old mono vinyl, even with its distortion. Feels like time travel.

                America's top jazz tenor joins Brazil's great young singer in the most exciting album of the year . Totaly Agree with that statement .

                The music that feels like a breath of fresh air , gentle , honest unpretentiousness washed away all the worried in life .

                Remarkable !

                  I am not sure if is just my pressing but it sounds a bit over amplified. As if the input level was too high during recording. Even sounding distorted during louder passages.

                    This is thee classic jazz album that brought the world to bossa nova. "The Girl From Ipanema" was an out right success due to the cool soft playing of the Tenor Saxophone from Stan Getz and the beautiful strings of João Gilberto. I've seen plenty reviews about this album and most critics can not stand Astrud's singing and wish it were left out. Granted she doesn't have the best female voice in jazz but she did add an innocent-girl feel to it. The other songs are all great and "Desafinado" became the other hit from this album and even Charlie Byrd went on to cover this track. It's simple, if your new to bossa nova jazz, buy this first.
                    There is a story behind the earnings that the artists received from this albums success. Stan went on to buy the sister of George Gershwin's 23-room mansion, while João Gilberto earned just $23,00 and Astrud and mere $125.
