explained this in a commentary published in 1989 in the Bossa Nova Years collection, below:
"I did not find much original tape for Getz Au Go Go, but I did unravel a mystery. Clearly something was up when Verve
decided to follow up the triumph of 'The Girl from Ipanema' with a second recording of Stan Getz and Astrud Gilberto.
Verve recorded her with Stan at the Cafe Au Go Go. They recorded her with Stan at the legendary Carnegie Hall Bossa
Nova Concert. *And* they recorded the two using the very same songs in the studio! The "post-production" decision
was to use the studio material with phony applause, claiming it came from the live Au Go Go date...NOT SO. This set all
but eliminates this gaffe.
Stan Getz appeareed with his new group at the Cafe Au Go Go in Greenwich Village during May 1964. The gig ran from
May1-31, 1964. The recording was done on May 22, '64 *not* June '64 which has long been listed. AStrud Gilberto
appeared with this unit for at least two weeks....On October 6, 1964--and perhaps on other dates as well--Astrud Gildberto
recorded with Stan Getz in the Studio, remaking the songs she had sung with Getz at the Au Go Go and would sing three
days later with Getz at Carnegie Hall. The studio material and the Carnegie Hall recording are what have survived"
--Phil Schaap, 'Technical and Discographical Comments,' published in booklet of complilation The Girl from Ipanema:
The Bossa Nova Years.
To further confuse the issue, elsewhere in the booklet of the same collection is this note about Getz Au Go Go:
"Live material recorded May 22, 1964 in New York.Read more ›
