 Astrud Gilberto - Music Downloads - Online
Bio: The honey-toned chanteuse on the surprise Brazilian crossover hit "The Girl From Ipanema," Astrud Gilberto parlayed her previously unscheduled appearance (and professional singing debut) on the song into a lengthy career that resulted in nearly a dozen albums for Verve and a successful performing career that lasted into the '90s.
Though her appearance at the studio to record "The Girl From Ipanema" was due only to her husband João, one of the most famed Brazilian artists of the century, Gilberto's singular, quavery tone and undisguised naïveté propelled the song into the charts and influenced a variety of sources in worldwide pop music.
Though she never returned to the pop charts in America, Verve proved to be quite understanding for Astrud Gilberto's career, pairing her with ace arranger Gil Evans for 1966's Look to the Rainbow and Brazilian organist/arranger Walter Wanderley for the dreamy A Certain Smile, a Certain Sadness, released later that year.

 astrud-gilberto Mp3 Albums Review
This compilation offers a fair representation of Astrud Gilberto's early recordings, although anyone who has had the privilege of seeing her in concert (I have had that honor twice) knows that she has since spread her musical talents in other directions.
Astrud Gilberto found fame with her contributions to 1964's classic Getz/Gilberto album, which spawned an instant standard in the hit single "The Girl from Ipanema." From there, she went on to fill many LPs with her winningly hesitant, longing vocal style; this disc collects 25andnbsp;tracks cut between 1965 and 1970 for Verve.
Throughout, Gilberto is aided by lush, thoughtful arrangements, including one by Gil Evans on "Berimbou." This entry in the Silver Collection series is an excellent introduction to one of Brazilian pop's most emblematic voices.

 Blogcritics.org: CD Review: Astrud Gilberto w/Stanley Turrentine
Astrud Gilberto accompanied her husband, Joao Gilberto, in March of 1963 to a recording session he was having with Stan Getz and Antonio Carlos Jobim and soon found herself singing on a handful of tracks one of which, "The Girl From Ipanema", would become a smash hit ushering in the bossa nova craze.
Astrud Gilberto became an international star who went on to record some excellent sides for the Verve label throughout the Sixties, but like Creed before her she decided to leave the label recording her last album for them in 1970.
Astrud grew dissatisfied with how things were going and she walked out before the recording was finished leaving a mess to be cleaned up by arranger, Deodato, and producer Creed Taylor resulting in the inclusion of two instrumentals to make up a full release.

 Astrud Gilberto: Astrud for Lovers
To hear the stories, Astrud's vocal career was something of an accident, since supposedly she was asked to sing the English language vocal on the Stan Getz/Joao Gilberto recording of "Girl from Ipanema" by producer Creed Taylor despite the fact that she apparently had no vocal training or credentials as a singer.
Astrud was born in Bahia and grew up in Rio de Janeiro, the magic heart of the country where she met and married songwriter Joao Gilberto, one of the originators of the style that became known as bossa nova.
Because of this, Astrud's recordings are often labeled romantic and certainly, that is true since her chosen material almost always deals with the subject of love.

 Joao & Astrud Gilberto   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-26)
La bossa nova, nata alla fine degli anni 50 in Brasile, precisamente a Copacabana, a Rio de Janeiro deriva dal samba-jazz, a quei tempi di moda nei nightclub di Rio, e il "cool jazz" americano, tutti, a loro volta, prodotti della samba be-bop degli anni '40.
Joao Gilberto fu scoperto mentre suonava in un nightclub di Copacabana da un gruppo di giovani studenti universitari che stava cercando e sperimentando una nuova forma di samba.
Sebbene la tecnica chitarristica di Joao Gilberto abbia influenzato un'intera generazione di.musicisti brasiliani, la bossa nova rimase sempre qualcosa di elitario in Brasile, cosi come lo fu il cool jazz in America, che non raggiunse mai il consumo di massa.
