F|O Points on this item

For many of us, there is no more recognisable voice in Brazilian music than the eminently listenable coo of Astrud Gilberto. This definitive compilation, part of a series highlighting the women whose voices helped Verve become a household name in jazz, features - of course - Girl From Ipanema, as well as notable songs of the era such as The Shadow Of Your Smile, Summer Samba, and Fly Me To The Moon, but also a number of the hip-swinging bossa nova tunes she helped popularise. The dinner party is saved, the perfect soundtrack has arrived! - Flying Out

After making her professional debut as the cool, breathy voice behind the historic 1964 crossover smash The Girl from Ipanema, Brazilian singer Astrud Gilberto became a major force in popularizing the bossa nova sound.

Her understated yet magnetic delivery is spotlighted on this collection, showcasing her instantly-recognizable approach to songs drawn from a variety of sources—Brazil, pop hits and standards.
