Editorial Reviews

Getz joined the great Brazilian guitarist two days after his 1963 Getz/Gilberto sessions and created another bossa-nova classic. First remaster in 20 years: Menina Moca; Outra Vez; Winter Moon; Samba Da Sahra , and more!

Format:Audio CD
This Stan Getz collaboration with Laurindo Almeida is a jazzier affair than the more pop-friendly likes of 'Jazz Samba' and 'Getz/Gilberto', which probably explains its lack of chart success. The emphasis is less on pop melody and the more superficial pleasures of bossa nova - these instrumental tracks are longer, more involved and intricate, and, with the exception of 'Corcovada', less familiar. With no vocalists to upstage him, Getz takes centre stage, and his playing is much more immediate than on, say, 'Jazz Samba'.
It would be a shame to miss out on this fantastic album, the bossa nova shaping some exceptional old-style jams, with 'Menina Moca' and 'Outra Vez' indelible workouts, sax and chugging guitar sparking with the mesmerisingly monotonous rhythm; while 'Winter Moon' is a nocturnal wonder, gentle troubadour guitar meeting insistent sax to evocative effect.

5.0 out of 5 stars Among Getz'z best Bossa Nova albums! September 30, 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Among the very best of Getz's Bossa Nova work, Getz w/ Guest Artist Laurindo Almeida is sadly overlooked by most fans who pick up Jazz Samba and Getz/Gilberto. Wholly instumental, like Jazz Samba, but with a mellower, more cool jazz, less driving feel. Exquisite and beautiful all the way through; Almeida-penned cuts like "Winter Moon" and "Maracatu-Too" really stand out.
It's puzzling why this one is so often missed by fans - though the fact that the title and cover art are so distinct from the other Bossa Nova albums might figure into it, as is that it came at the end (1966) of Getz's work in the style. Don't miss it, or the sublime Jazz Samba Encore (1963) either! I listen to both far more often than Getz/Gilberto.

1.0 out of 5 stars Warning: This is the MONO version! October 22, 2005
A Kid's Review
Format:Audio CD
I would have really loved to have a modern CD transfer of this great album, but unfortunately this overpriced Japanese "mini LP" CD is the mono version.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing melody! September 27, 1999
Format:Audio CD
My parents used to play this album when I was a kid. I rediscovered it in college and now it's one of my FAVORITE albums. Stan Getz is relaxed and natural sounding, hitting only the RIGHT notes and playing melodies that stay with you long after the disc stops spinning. Laurindo Almeida plays beautifully, sound like two or three guitars at times... This album is on equal footing with Jazz Samba and other Getz classics. I have no idea why it's so obscure. A must have!

5.0 out of 5 stars A truely touching record February 5, 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
while many other bossa nova albums are tinged with an influence of commercialism and strings, this album is a diamond. unlike many other bossa nova albums, this album features all great players, all who seem to have a very good understanding and knowledge of the music. some of the others albums, such as jazz samba, feel like a jazz take on brazil, which can be good if you wnat that, but this music is true bossa nova, while bringing jazz influencess, Getz fits in perfectly into this extremely different category of music.
As for laurindo almieda, all i can say is wow, what a sadly overlooked figure in bossa nova, and guitar music in general. hes soloing is smart, mature, and playfull, bringing out the best in getz and and company.
Out of every Getz or Bossa Nova album, get this one and Stan Getz with Luiz Bonfa: Jazz Samba Encore, two of the most touching albums i have ever heard in my whole life. buy them together!!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Classic May 10, 2007
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Laurindo Almeida is one of my favorite guitarists. He was a real talent, perhaps in the shadow of some of the other greats from Brazil when Bossa Nova was so popular like Baden Powell, Luiz Bonfa, Joao Gilberto, etc. etc. But here I think he shines brightly with none other than Stan Getz who really was "the Sound".

I can't say it enough - I love this album. Granted, it is very short - just under 30 minutes of music. But in that time you have some tracks that take you to that time, to a summer sunset. Listening to the vinyl though hold's something a bit more special to me, but both formats have all the songs from the feature - the difference being that the CD actually has an additional track - a rendition to "Corcovado". But I love Menina Moca and I think my other favorite is Maracatu-Too. It's almost impossible not to like the bossa in that song, which keeps the track so tight and moving... let alone Stan Getz's sax layered over the piano and Laurindo's guitar as the notes take off.

Definitely check this one out. I think it's woefully underrated out of all of the great Stan Getz Bossa Nova collaborations. It's purely a matter of taste but it's certainly one of my top two, if not number one (depending on the mood). And if you do like this, check out Getz/Gilberto, Stan Getz Big Band Bossa Nova and especially Getz/Bonfa, which features Luiz Bonfa's wife, Maria Toledo, with stunning & haunting vocals.

3.0 out of 5 stars Bossa Nova June 8, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Probably anyone who likes bossa nova will like this mid-60s album containing great songs such as the ballad "Winter Moon", the lively, percussive "Maracatu-Too", and the standard "Corcovado". The recording isn't perfect, but it sufficiently displays the tones of Getz' sax and Almeida's guitar. The total time is quite short for CD, about a half-hour, but that's a minor concern considering the quality of the music.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Solid Gold Bossa Nova September 7, 2002
Format:Audio CD
This CD is one of the absolute best ever recorded Bossa Nova!Getz and Almeida are at their best. The unique flavor of bass playing by George Duvivier is amazing. Recorded in 1963 but released in 1966, this is a must-have for all bossa lovers like me. Of the many versions of Jobim's "Outra Vez" in my vast collection, this one is the best. If you don't like this album, you don't like Bossa Nova.

This is another Bossa Nova classic from the master of that style. I agree with previous reviewers that this record is as good as Getz/Gilberto and Jazz Samba. Read more
