By November 27, 2009

Follow me on:

Recently I was listening to Stan Getz and Astrud Gilberto on their 1964 live album Getz/Gilberto Vol. 2, and I was inspired to write a brief description of bossa nova. Also check out my profile of bossa nova composer Antonio Carlos Jobim, many of whose songs, including "The Girl From Ipanema," "Corcovado," and "How Insensitive" have become standards in the jazz repertoire.
