The Diva Series: Astrud Gilberto
Open iTunes to preview, buy, and download music.
Astrud Gilberto, the Brazilian canary with the voice like honey and diction that defied belief, has been compiled many times on Verve, but rarely as well as on her entry in 2003's The Diva Series. A 21-track of her prime decade, the '60s, this one includes all of the classics associated with her: "The Girl From Ipanema," "Agua de Beber," "Corcovado (Quiet Nights of Quiet Stars)," "So Nice (Summer Samba)," and "Dindi." Not all of her LPs have been reissued on CD (in the States), so the compilers also added tracks that may surprise a few Gilberto fans, like "Eu e Voce" and "Canto de Ossanha (Let Go)."
Mmm, this music, warm evening and a large cognac.
A collection of great songs old and new. Great music for relaxing and doing nothing.
Love this album to feel relaxed and happy no matter how stressful my day is! Astrud's voice is calming and soothing...
There is just something about her voice that is so relaxing. Even with the songs that are upbeat, you just want to sit back, relax and enjoy. I highly recommend this simply wonderful album!
