Description
The consummately lyrical saxophonist Stan Getz once described bossa nova as "a great hybrid, the true samba blended with cool jazz," saying that is was "just like a man and a woman getting together." This classic 1962 album with Charlie Byrd—another essential popularizer of Brazilian music—just preceded Getz's Grammy win for "The Girl From Ipanema" (from Getz/Gilberto) as "best record of the year" and produced its own pop chart hit in "Desafinado." Other gems included Ary Barroso's "Bahia," Baden Powell's "Samba Triste," and Antonio Carlos Jobim's "Samba de Uma Nota Só" ("One Note Samba").

"A shimmering, graceful collection that's as subtly advanced—in harmony and rhythm—as it is beautiful…. Byrd was one of the first American musicians to master bossa nova's difficult, bubbling syncopations, and his solos are light and lilting. Meanwhile, Getz's playing is superb, simultaneously offering a warm, full tone and a cool control of dynamics; plus, Byrd's gently off-kilter harmonies seem to stimulate Getz's melodic inventiveness even more than usual. But beyond technique, Getz intuitively understands the romanticism and the undercurrent of melancholy inherent in the music."—All Music Guide
