The first three songs on this collection are very pleasant, each one better than the last, then I came to "Only trust your heart". I'm still on that, and after about ten listens I don't know who to admire more: Benny Carter who composed this lovely bossa (found that out from google; he wasn't credited here), Sammy Cahn for the lyrics "just wait for a night/when the stars are all bare/then see if you care", or Gilberto, whose sad, spare voice floats over the piece like a cool breeze in late summer. Not to mention Gary Burton's tasteful work on vibes or Stan Getz on tenor (who, truth be told, sounds like he may have spent a bit too much time in the sun). Just a perfect match between singer and song.

I'll be honest, I heard The Girl From Ipanema on a TV commercial and had to know who that was. I mostly enjoy jazz or classical along with other music styles, but when I put this in the CD player, and heard The Girl From Ipanema I fell in love with this woman. I was scared from that point on that the rest of the album would be a waste of my dollars, but after listening to the album several times through, I can say this was the best cd I've picked up in a long time. I got home from a stressful day at work, put this on, and just sat there listening to the music for hours. It was the most peacful time I have had in months. I must have more! This album is GREAT!

My collection of Jazz, R&B music is close to 500 CD's and growing. I do not purchase music based on an idea of having a collection, I've got to completely know something about the artist, like the work, feel that its worthy to present it to others and keep track of old as new material. Astrud Gilberto is one of Brazils most celebrated artist, I've spent many hours listening to his music. Brazilian Jazz has a flavor unique to Brazil and is fascinating. If you are into Jazz and have not explored Brazilian Jazz then you're in for an exciting time, start here, Amazon has all the best of Brazil. ..

My all time fav. Bossa Nova songs would be "Girl From Ipanema", "Fly Me To The Moon" and "Quiet Nights Of Quiet Stars". This Album contains all of them and other good Astrud Gilberto's works. I you like Bossa Nova and have not got this CD, you don't know what you are missing.

Although this is a compilation of songs from various recordings, I found this cd to be very enjoyable. For 'round midnight listening? I don't think so, this cd makes for enjoyable listening at anytime during the day or night.

This is what I experience when I listen to Astrud sing. I cry. Literally sometimes. She's an amazing talent. I'd name children after her.
