Getz/gilberto. Stan Getz, Joao Gilberto (sacd)

Stan Getz, Joao Gilberto
Previous to this Super Audio CD reissue, the original master tapes for the classic Verve Getz/Gilberto album had not been used since 1980. In the process of Analogue Productions' remastering of this album as it was originally mixed to master tape, they discovered that nearly every version of this title released to date (including the original from 1963), had had the channels reversed. In addition to correcting this error, the present recording features the kind of restorative sonic magic one has come to expect from APO. Little needs to be said about this amazing album, which made the bossa nova style a permanent part of the jazz canon. The stellar performances of Stan Getz, Joâ€žo Gilberto and his wife Astrud Gilberto have made it one of the defining recordings of the genre and of jazz in general.
