The premier bossa jazz masterpiece

This beautiful album was responsible for putting the Bossa Nova sound in the limelight.  Composed by the legendary Antonio Carlos Jobim  this fusion of Jazz and Bossa Nova became the standard for the future of the genre.  The combination of Stan Getz on saxophone, and Joao Gilberto on guitar creates a mellow and hypnotic synergy.   It also features the vocal debut of Astrid Gilberto who set the vocal template for all to follow with her whispery delivery.  This album is an absolute classic and will please anyone looking for a beautiful mellow sound.
