Astrud Gilberto says that her husband, Joao, informed Stan Getz that she "could sing at the recording." Creed Taylor recalls that it took Getz's wife, Monica, to get both Astrud and Joao into the recording studio; Mrs. Getz had a sense that Astrud could make a hit. And Getz himself is on record saying that he insisted on Astrud's presence over the others' objections. So who's right? What does it matter? The Gilbertos, Getz and the legendary Antonio Carlos Jobim followed up the bossa nova success of Jazz Samba with this, the defining LP of the genre. With one of the greatest hit singles jazz has ever known - each one who hears it goes "Ahhh!"

This, the first SACD version of the title, was issued in 2002 and is based on a 'remix'. This puts Astrud on the right. Track 5 is marred by audible tape delamination. It was mastered by Kevin Reeves at Universal Mastering Studios-East.

The disc also includes a couple of 'bonus' tracks sourced from the 45 RPM issue.
