Awkward trivia[edit]

"An interesting tidbit about this recording is that producer Creed Taylor kept the recording in a drawer for a year before releasing it, for reasons known only to him."

The information is fine but it doesn't belong in the summary paragraph. I personally don't know anyway to integrate it into the article for now so I'm taking it out. Glassbreaker5791 16:09, 19 August 2007 (UTC)


Another Grammy winning Jazz Album[edit]

Quincy Jones: Back on the Block, another jazz album winning the Grammy for Album of the Year -1991 —Preceding unsigned comment added by 70.90.142.202 (talk) 15:16, 16 October 2008 (UTC)


Importance[edit]

This album is a landmark in recording history, and it was notably responsible for the dissemination of the bossa nova style outside of Brazil in the 1960s, quickly followed by many recordings of bossa nova songs by american artists, and eventually made the Girl from Ipanema become a standard and one of the most recognizable tunes anywhere. I am reverting the recent change from top to mid, back to top. Fbergo (talk) 19:56, 24 January 2009 (UTC)

the person who wrote the album[edit]

Why is the person who wrote almost the entire album, and played on the album, treated as a secondary notation? This is Jobim's album.68.49.111.15 (talk) 00:46, 18 April 2009 (UTC)

All of the tracks in the album are rearrangements of the original recordings, featuring prominently Gilberto's guitar and Getz's saxophone. Jobim's original recordings and arrangements were too full and complex, and the Gilberto's innovation with the bossa nova was the his minimalist voice-and-guitar style. The (commercial) objective of this album was to spread the style (not the compositions themselves) to the american public. Launching Astrud Gilberto's career as a singer was, apparently, just a side-effect. Of all recordings of the Girl of Ipanema in english, her rendering of the english lyrics are unique as she pronounces Ipanema correctly, unlike Sinatra and several other american artists.

Re bass player[edit]

The CD lists the bass player as being Tommy Williams of Getz's working group.
