Stan Getz & Joao Gilberto: Getz/Gilberto (Mastercut Edition) #022

Recorded in March 1963 at A&R Studios, New York, NY, USA. The multi-Grammy winning album Getz/Gilberto by Stan Getz, João Gilberto and Astrud Gilberto was one of the best-selling albums of all time and marked a peak of the bossa nova wave.
