THE GROOVE YARD 168 – THE GIRL FROM IPANEMA

George Klein presents the 6th and final hour of a feature on tenor saxophonist Stan Getz who died in June 1991. This hour focuses on some very popular bossa nova recordings with Brazilians Laurindo Almeida, Antonio Carlos Jobim, Joao Gilberto & his wife Astrud, who served as interpreter for the recording session and was called on to sing “The Girl from Ipanema,” which became a very big hit. After another recording with Astrud, the emphasis shifts to some straight ahead recordings from the late 1960s, where the Getz feature ends.

THE GROOVE YARD 167 – ONE NOTE SAMBA

George Klein presents the final segment of a multi-part series commemorating Stan Getz, who passed away in 1991. This hour is from 1962-63, the first years of the bossa nova craze in the U.S. The Getz album with guitarist Charlie Byrd, Jazz Samba, was a huge hit that inspired many musicians to try bossa nova for musical & monetary reasons. Other collaborations were also influential: Big Band Bossa Nova with Gary McFarland, and Jazz Samba Encore with Luis Bonfa.
