180 Gram Vinyl! Brazilian Samba Bossa Nova! Beautiful Vocal Stylings! Pressed at Pallas in Germany!

Astrud Gilberto sings a mist of sound. Her voice is small and soft and very intimate. Although it has been described as "the sound of yearning innocence," it is also the sound of hushed intimacy. Astrud married Joao Gilberto in 1959 and emigrated to the U.S. in 1963. She burst into the limelight of American popular music when her vocal on the Stan Getz recording of The Girl From Ipanema captivated enough American ears to help make the record a best-seller, and Astrud a star. It was her first professional appearance as a vocalist. She has absolute command of bossa nova songs, and creates fresh and incisive renditions of American popular songs. This album is Astrud's third.

"This was a beautiful bossa nova record of Astrud Gilberto's vocal stylings...All the material here, with the exception of "Learn to Live Alone" and "Pretty Place," which were arranged by Al Cohn, were arranged by Gil Evans. With the exception of a Johnny Coles trumpet solo, the personnel was uncredited on this 1966 recording. Discographies have credited Bob Brookmeyer (valve trombone), Kenny Burrell (guitar), and Grady Tate (drums), but except for a few bars of sax, there was no solo indivdualism in this large Creed Taylor-produced orchestra. " - Bob Rusch,
