Stan Getz & Joao Gilberto

Stan Getz & Joao Gilberto

The original master tapes for this title had not been used since 1980 previous to this reissue.

Also, for this Analogue Productions reissue the decision was made to master and present this album as it was originally mixed to master tape.

With very few exceptions all versions of this title to date, including the original, have had the channels incorrectly reversed.

With this version, you’ll hear this title as it was intended to be heard, without the channels reversed.

And again, those reissues you’ve heard up until now – definitely still breathy, warm and rich – were made from something less than the master.

Prepare to hear the veil removed.

Astrud Gilberto says that her husband, Joao, informed Stan Getz that she “could sing at the recording.”

Creed Taylor recalls that it took Getz’s wife, Monica, to get both Astrud and Joao into the recording studio.

Mrs. Getz had a sense that Astrud could make a hit.

And Getz himself is on record saying that he insisted on Astrud’s presence over the others’ objections.

So who’s right? What does it matter?

The Gilbertos, Getz and the legendary Antonio Carlos Jobim followed up the bossa nova success of Jazz Samba with this, the defining LP of the genre.

With one of the greatest hit singles jazz has ever known – each one who hears it goes “Ahhh!”

Originally released in 1963.

Stan Getz, tenor saxophone
Joao Gilberto, guitar, vocals
Astrud Gilberto, vocals
Antonio Carlos Jobim, guitar, piano

Analogue Productions

Analogue Productions It was in 1992 that Acoustic Sounds owner Chad Kassem reissued his first Analogue Productions title, Virgil Thompson's The Plow That Broke The Plains, originally on Vanguard. Analogue Productions began as a vehicle for Kassem to license his favorite all-time recordings and reissue them as remastered and as a superior version to the original release. Since its inception AP has reissued hundreds of titles, ranging from classical to folk, pop, rock, blues and jazz. Included in the many highlights of Analogue Productions' history are the Fantasy 45 Jazz Reissues, the Blue Note Reissues, and premium box sets of the music of such legendary acts as The Doors, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Nat "King" Cole and Norah Jones. True to its name, Analogue Productions works with the original analogue master tapes - more than any other reissue label! The result is superior sound - richer, warmer and more lifelike, than digital.
