Editors’ Notes

The wispy-voiced Brazilian chanteuse Astrud Gilberto entered the loungecore pantheon as the singer of Stan Getz's 1964 bossa nova hit, "The Girl From Ipanema," a song that swept her into global superstardom/ Soon after, Gilberto divorced her husband, bossa nova pioneer Joao Gilberto, leaving Brazil to pursue her fortune in the United States. This twelve-song collection highlights some of her more romantic performances made for the Verve jazz label, where her breathy, blasŽ vocal style yielded remarkable results. Gilberto never hit the pop charts again, but she recorded with some of the greatest jazz players of her time, among them arranger Gil Evans (heard here on "Look To The Rainbow"), Claus Ogerman, and fellow Brazilian Joao Donato. Included here are her version of Luiz Bonfa's "Manha De Carnaval" and several English-language songs that highlight both the thinness -- and strange magic -- of her modest voice.
