30 Day Album Challenge #Day 18

Welcome back to my 30 Album Challenge

Day 18: A Summer Album

Well here we are again with the cryptic prompt, a Summer Album is certainly open to interpretation. I am going to take it as a chilled out album to lazy to while sipping a cold drink and my choice is Getz/Gilberto by Stan Getz and Joao Gilberto with Antonio Carlos Jobim. This album helped promote the inclusion of bossa nova in Jazz, something which was aided by a single release of the opening track “The Girl from Ipanema” which featured Hilberto’s wife, Astrid, providing English vocals. The chill back nature of arrangements suits the cool west coast sound of Stan Getz’s Tenor playing and this album would come to define his career.
