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!"

UCGU-9001 (Issued 2010) and the reissue UCGU-9043 (Issued 2014) are SHM-SACD's.

These SHM-SACD's use the 'remix' (and it is thought to be the same DSD version as UCGU-7031, the Japan Hybrid from 2004.) - I have not been able to access a copy of the liner notes myself to check for DSD Transfer/Mastering credits. If someone has a copy, have a look and let us know!

Nb. Accordingly Astrud is on the right.
