I've owned this CD for over 3 years now; I consider it among my top 3.
There's a moment soon after you first hit play and begin hearing the Astrud Gilberto's sublime voice, Jobim's guitar, and Getz's knee-buckling sax, that you realize that you're not just listening to good jazz, or even good music. Indeed, you are not listening to anything. You are on the musical equivalent of a magic carpet, with the world as just so much stardust, and time no longer a relevant concept.
This CD compilation is definitive Bossa Nova. You will probably never experience music which blends rhythm, harmony, and melody as well as what you'll find here. Getz's sax is absolutely incredible.

This is not an album, and as such it is not the definitive Bossanova statement. However, it is the best disc for exploring the genre.
The collaboration between Getz and Jobim was magical. Latin beats fused with jazz rhythms aren't revolutionary in 2001, but this was groundbreaking stuff in the early 60s. What's more the music sounds as fresh as ever.
Astrud Gilberto had no musical experience prior to the Getz/Jobim/Gilberto experiment, and it's a good thing that they let her sing. Her voice is sublime, and the live version of "The Girl From Ipanema" which is presented here is perfect. This CD strikes a nice balance between vocal and instrumental tracks to give a great overview of the genre, one of the most influential in modern music.

I've always been one to explore different genres of music, so I bought this cd not really knowing what to expect from it. I bought it because it was part of the Jazz Masters series so I figured it must be good. It turned out to be soooo much better than good. I absolutely fell in love with this music. Now I am on a quest to buy as many albums like this as I can. Stan Getz is so incredible on the sax alone, but you add in Astrud and Joao Gilberto and the music is just magical. I'm a 22 yr old and now that I've discovered this music I can't even bare to listen to the crap on the radio anymore. I am so happy I found this album, this music, it lifts my spirit, and eases my soul at the end of the day!! It is PERFECTION!!!

Format: Audio CD
"Charlie Byrd was one of many musicians who had returned from a tour of Brazil fascinated by the elegant, jazz-inflected bossa nova music, which was transporting the traditional samba into richer harmonic area over a floating beat. Bossa Nova was made for Getz, whose aesthetic combined beauty and swing in a fashion similar to the Brazilian's. Other musicians would record the new Brazilian music; but it was Getz's sound and sensibility that turned bossa nova into a phenomenon in the U.S. at a time when jazz was growing more exploratory and pop music was awaiting Motown and the British Invasion. And a phenomenon is just what bossa nova became after the Getz-Byrd album "Jazz Samba" was released in the spring of 1962 - represented here by "Samba De Uma Nota So" (One Note Samba) and "Samba Triste." ~ Bob Blumenthal ~

Bossa Nova is an elegant jazz-inflected music that swept America by storm in the early sixties. It's Brazil's "infectiously lyrical gift to the world." It was fascinatingly embraced not only by great musicians but by the listening public as well. In addition to Antonio Carlos Jobim, Sergio Mendes & Brasil '66, Laurindo Almeida, Ellis Regina, João and Astrud Gilberto, Eliane Elias, some of the famous musicians who recorded this music include Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, Tony Bennett, Wes Montgomery, Rosemary Clooney, Sarah Vaughan, Natalie Cole, John Pizzarelli, Kenny Rankin and Diana Krall, among countless others.

"Stan Getz: Bossa Nova" is one of the most notable recordings in this genre. The genius of saxophone plays his favorite instrument in a manner so enchanting, lyrical, and brilliant. From "Quiet Nights of Quiet Stars" to "The Girl From Ipanema," Mr. Getz's works are full of virtuosity and majesty.

If you are just now getting into Bossa Nova...uhhh...it's about time! This is such great music. A lot of people think that Bossa Nova is lightweight and lacks substance...but then again, a lot of people who now have proof of living on a round planet still insist that the world is flat.

Their world is flat because it looks color...it lacks variety...

people allow themselves to become one dimensional. They don't go outside of their own preferences. I have a question to ask of you, how did you get to know what your preferences were in the first place? Huh? Answer that, Mr. Bossa Nova Naysayer/Miss Stan Getz Dismissist...

The only reason why I happened to get into jazz was because when I was thirteen or so, somebody had the nerve to turn mess with my stereo and they had turned the dial to some other station. Infuriated, I began to slowly move the dial across the band and I "accidentally"...remember this, there are no accidents...came across a jazz station. This wasn't Aerosmith, this wasn't Led Zeppelin, this wasn't Boston...this was something new...or at least new to me...and something within my heart leaped...

something in my soul said, "YES", but y'see the whole point of this little story is to just remind people...not just you...but to remind all of us, that we need to s t r e t c h our minds,

our hearts, our spirits and learn to be more accepting and ultimately more embracing of new types of music, literature, art and so on. How boring I would be if I still listened to just Boston. I'd probably still have a mullet and have a beer belly with the emotional intelligence quotient of a thirteen year old...

So again, if you're new to Bossa Nova, welcome! Start with this album.
