There are only few times in modern music when several elements all come together and create something of great initial impact and with lasting influence. In 1964 when Getz/Gilberto was released this rare feat was achieved. In this context the album can be regarded as one of great historic importance.

Chega de Saudade - The first bossa nova hit Universally accepted as the first bossa nova song to gain widespread attention, Chega de Saudade is truly a landmark song in the history of bossa nova and modern music. Though Joao Gilberto would be the one to popularize the song, featuring it on his album with the same name, it was Rio’s very own Elizete Cardoso who would have the honor of being the first to perform the song. It is her version, recorded on July 10, 1958, and not Joao Gilberto’s version which is [...]

In 1991 Joao Gilberto commemorated a glittering career with the release of “Joao.” After years of not releasing original compositions, this album stands out as his only work in that category for the entire decade. Undoubtedly, it stands out for much more as well. “Eu Sambo Mesmo” or “I really like to samba” is a mid-tempo song done in an insouciantmanner where Gilberto’s voice and guitar dominate and the strings are introduced in a minor role. It’s a bright opener and a memorable track. Despite this, Una Mujer’s (another highlight) lazy strings and heavy use of [...]
"Sampa" a nick name for the city of São Paulo was a song originally written by Caetano Veloso in 1978. Joao Gilberto takes the relatively upbeat song and covers it in the bossa nova style , slowing the tempo and providing an arrangement of beautiful chords for the lyrics to flow over. The song is a contemplation on the city of São Paulo with Caetano putting his inner poet to work. This version is definitely my preferred and it is a song that displays Joao Gilberto's great ability as a musician.
