Format: Audio CD
This is a 50th anniversary remaster/reissue of the immortal Getz/Gilberto. Including the original recording, which was made in March 1963 and released June of 1964. There is the original stereo version, a monaural version and the single, where Mr. Gilberto's portuguese portion of the famoso "Girl..." was edited out, except for one note he sings along with Astrud.

This recording is often classified as Bossa Nova -- but it is better thought of as a "miracle" one-of-a-kind recording. With the Brazilian composer, Antonio Carlos Jobim on piano. Both Getz and Jobim have passed on. Joao is now 83 and Astrud is 74 years old. (Supporting cast includes: Sebastian Neto, bass and Milton Banana, drums.)

These recordings are the real "time machine." Fortunately, we live in an age of recorded music no other century has enjoyed. And in this case, we are able to go back to an A & R recording studio on a Monday evening in 1963 where these musicians created a recording that will never die.

Impossible to underestimate the magic of this recording. Nothing before or since has the intimacy and heavenly vibe been created. I strongly recommend buying and listening, since this will not be happening again. A once-in-a-lifetime recording experience. Be glad you are alive to hear it.

The big news here is that this edition contains the entire album in both stereo and mono. While the stereo tracks don't sound nearly as good as they do on either one of the SACD versions or the blu ray disc, the mono sounds superb and is a nice counterpoint to either of the higher resolution discs.
