Stan Getz & João Gilberto - “The Girl from Ipanema

1964 was taken over by jazzy bossa nova in the form of Getz/Gilberto and their honey sweet version of “The Girl from Ipanema.” It also took over the 1965 Grammy’s winning Album of the Year, Best Jazz Album and the coveted Record of the Year.

João Gilberto’s wife Astrud provided the vocals that make this version the gold standard for the song about a real Brazilian girl.
