Jazz Samba Encore! is a bossa nova album by Stan Getz and Luiz Bonfá, released on the Verve label.[4] It is bossa nova in a slower groove. It contains a mix of Jobim standards as well as originals from Bonfá. Performers also include Antonio Carlos Jobim and vocalist Maria Toledo, Bonfá's wife. Some songs are more subdued in tone, while other performances, including "O Morro Não Tem Vez", featuring a blistering solo from Getz, are louder and quite upbeat. The painting on the cover is by Olga Albizu.
