Listening to Getz/Gilberto, the classic bossa nova album which became one of the best-selling jazz albums of all times. Getz/Gilberto spent 96 weeks in the charts and won four Grammys. It remains one of those rare cases in popular music where commercial success matches artistic merit. How I hadn’t discovered this album before now still boggles me. A must-have for all lovers of bossa nova in its purest form.
