This CD is great for summer dinner parties...especially if you are serving mojitos or caipirinhas...

Getz/Gilberto, is an album by Stan Getz and João Gilberto, featuring Antonio Carlos Jobim, released in 1964.

Its release created a bossa nova craze in the U.S., and subsequently internationally. It brought together saxophonist Stan Getz, who had already performed the genre on his LP Jazz Samba, Joao Gilberto (one of the creators of the style), and Jobim, a celebrated Brazilian songwriter, who wrote most of the songs in the album. It became one of the best-selling jazz albums of all times, and turned singer Astrud Gilberto, who sang on the track of "The Girl from Ipanema" and "Corcovado", into an international sensation.

In 2003, the album was ranked number 454 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 500 greatest albums of all time.
