Stan Getz / Astrud Gilberto - All About Bossa Nova Vol. 1 download mp3 album
Big Band Bossa Nova is a 1962 album by saxophonist Stan Getz with the Gary McFarland Orchestra. The album was arranged and conducted by Gary McFarland and produced by Creed Taylor for Verve Records. This was Stan's second bossa nova album for Verve following Jazz Samba, his very successful collaboration with guitarist Charlie Byrd. The music was recorded at the CBS 30th Street Studio in New York City on August 27 and 28, 1962.
A live album, Getz/Gilberto Vol. 2, followed, as did Getz Au Go Go (1964), a live recording at the Cafe au Go Go. Getz's love affair with Astrud Gilberto brought an end to his musical partnership with her and her husband, and he began to move away from bossa nova and back to cool jazz. While still working with the Gilbertos, he recorded the jazz album Nobody Else but Me (1964), with a new quartet including vibraphonist Gary Burton, but Verve Records, wishing to continue building the Getz brand with bossa nova, refused to release it. It came out 30 years later, after Getz had died. Stan Getz: Spring 1976". Retrieved April 29, 2017. "Stan Getz Awards".
Getz and bossa nova were made for each other. Vibraphonist Gary Burton, who joined Getz's band in 1964, nailed the connection during an interview for Down Beat the following year. When he solos, the melodies he makes up sound richer than the written melody. Along with the Gilbertos, drummer Milton Banana is key to the success of Getz/Gilberto. Jobim, who wrote six of the album's eight songs and played piano, brought Banana over from Brazil specially for the sessions and his gently propulsive playing is a delight throughout. Getz/Almeida was recorded just two days after Getz/Gilberto, but to Getz's annoyance was not released until 1966, when bossa nova was long past its commercial zenith.
Getz/Gilberto made bossa nova a permanent part of the jazz landscape not just with its unassailable beauty, but with one of the biggest smash hit singles in jazz history - "The Girl From Ipanema," a Jobim classic sung by João's wife, Astrud Gilberto, who had never performed outside of her own home prior to the recording session. Beyond that, most of the Jobim songs recorded here also became standards of the genre - "Corcovado" (which featured another vocal by Astrud), "So Danço Samba," "O Grande Amor," a new version of "Desafinado.

João Gilberto is not, strictly speaking, a classical guitarist. But it is safe to say that few modern nylon-string players have had as significant an impact on the instrument as Gilberto has, and his influence definitely crosses over into the classical-guitar world, where samba and bossa nova pieces by Antonio Carlos Jobim and others can often be found in programs sitting next to Bach, Barrios, and Albéniz.
