CD Reviews

Love Astrud Gilberto, but mediocre reproduction.
George Furtado | Big Island | 09/27/2002
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I rated this a 4 because this cd needs remastering.I have 5 of Astrud Gilberto's cd's. I love this singer's delivery, but the production quality of this cd is not the best. I own 4 other Astrud cds, all rated 5 on Amazon. If this is your first Astrud Gilberto experience, try one of the others, first.I guess I'd buy it, again, in spite of its flaws."
...among the best of an earlier Latin Explosion
Anthony G Pizza | FL | 01/11/2000
(4 out of 5 stars)

"The new interest in Latin performers such as Ricky Martin is unlikely to raise interest in bossa nova music. To many, its rhythms and guitar interplay always recall the Swinging Sixties. But the sweet, clear voice of Astrud Gilberto, heard here collaborating with some of the day's best jazz arrangers and musicians (Gil Evans, Marty Paich and of course, Antonio Carlos Jobim) is always worth hearing. Stan Getz received most of the credit (and royalties) for the first big bossa nova hit, "Girl From Ipanema" (heard here in a live version). But Ms. Gilberto became the trademark voice for the music's sensual sound, which influenced the other pop-bossa nova star of the time, Sergio Mendes. "Dindi," "Quiet Nights of Quiet Stars," and a lovely version of "The Shadow of Your Smile" (which everyone from Streisand to Sinatra recorded at the time) are highlights. A great introduction to both Ms. Gilberto and the bossa nova sound, but also check out the Frank Sinatra/Antonio Carlos Jobim masterpiece from 1967."
Good Collection of Astrud Gilberto Songs
George Furtado | 06/10/1998
(4 out of 5 stars)

"the songs on this on this album range from festive (felicidad) to somber and fatalistic (Quiet night of Quiet Stars). Its a good collection that showcases Gilberto's unique brazilian voice. One major disapointment for me was the live recording of her major hit, Stan Getz's "Girl from Ipanema". There is a microphone glitch at the beginning of the song that really annoys me. Other than that, the rest of the stuff is pretty good"
