This year marks the 50th anniversary of the landmark, four-time Grammy Award winning jazz album GETZ/GILBERTO which single-handedly ignited the international bossa nova craze with such hits as “The Girl From Ipanema” and “Corcovado”. This anniversary celebrate with the release of GETZ/GILBERTO: Expanded Edition. It includes U.S. single versions of the widely popular hits as well as a newly remastered version of the jazz/bossa nova classic album in both mono and stereo, with the mono version making its CD debut and the stereo album in its original left-right configuration for the first time since its vinyl release!
GETZ/GILBERTO, released in 1964 and produced by label head Creed Taylor, was an international sensation altering the direction of jazz, pop and the samba itself. It brought together Stan Getz (tenor saxophone) with Brazilian stars Joao Gilberto (guitar & vocals) and Antonio Carlos Jobim (composer & pianist), who wrote and co-wrote six of the original eight tracks on the album, as well as Joao’s young wife Astrud Gilberto, who was not scheduled to contribute to the album. When Astrud was spontaneously asked to sing new English lyrics to “The Girl From Ipanema,” her charming, sultry vocals made all the difference. “The Girl From Ipanema” reached No. 1 on Billboard’s Adult Contemporary chart and went to No. 5 on the Billboard Hot 100. (Astrud is also featured on “Corcovado.”) Other bossa nova classics on the album include “Só Danço Samba,” “Vivo Sonhando,” “O Grande Amor” and “Desafinado.” Backing the main artists is the Brazilian rhythm section of Sebastiao Neto (bass) and Milton Banana (drums).
In 1965 at the seventh annual Grammy Awards, GETZ/GILBERTO was the first jazz album to win a Grammy for Album Of The Year, while “The Girl From Ipanema” won Record of the Year. GETZ/GILBERTO also won Best Jazz Instrumental Album andBest Engineered Album, Non-Classical. The album’s engineering award was the first Grammy for the late, legendary Phil Ramone, who recorded the album at his renowned A&R Recording studio.
Ranked one of Rolling Stone’s 500 ”Greatest Albums Of All Time” and Vibe Magazine’s “100 Essential Albums of the 20th Century,” GETZ/GILBERTO’s wildly addictive charm proved that the bossa nova had legs—that the infectious syncopated rhythm could be leveraged as easily as the blues to captivate listeners, and forever making an everlasting impact on the world of jazz.
