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.

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.
