As a youngster I was fortunate to hear this classic Stan Getz album played often on my Dad’s stereo. Although not an audiophile by definition, my Dad always had decent audio equipment. I know this to be true because I was always taking it apart to find out how it all worked! This was my first exposure to the cool, rhythmic qualities of bossa nova. This album was released in 1964 and became one of the best selling jazz albums of all time. I most likely have my Mom to thank (a professional dancer in her younger years) for having it in the record album collection.
Anyone else have this recording as an early musical influence?
