Music today has been Stan Getz and Astrud Gilberto – Getz Au Go Go (1964). Beautiful expressive soft sax playing with subtle Brazilian Portuguese low key vocals, tuneful and seductive delivery, relaxing as the beach at Ipanema. I have actually been to the beach at Ipanema. I remember the contrast of the glamour, beautiful people on the sand, and the homeless begging across the road. Now living in Portugal, although there’s a different accent and different words, Olivia is understanding or as she put it, “It’s not just beautiful blah, blah anymore”. If you are wondering where the recording of Astrud Gilberto singing The Girl From Ipanema is, it’s on the Getz/João Gilberto album from 1963.
