1098. Stan Getz & João Gilberto - Getz/Gilberto

The cornerstone of bossa nova. This album created the genre and it has inspired almost every musician out there somehow. Gilberto is pretty amazing because he sounds like a mumbling Woody Allen but his mumbles are poetic and confident and sincere. Getz is breathing through his sax, whispering you the beauty that Gilberto is singing and along for the ride is a young Jobim adding a freshness that keeps this slowed down samba bubbling.

9.4 out of 10
