“Garota de Ipanema” performed by Astrud Gilberto, Stan Getz, and Joao Gilberto (1963)

6 03 2009

Better known as “The Girl From Ipanema” in the U.S., this music by Antonio Carlos Jobim has almost become the archetype of smooth bossa nova jazz pop.  This is probably the music my parents were listening to when courting each other, hanging out at cocktail parties and subtly swaying to the gentle groove.

Sweet, buttery goodness.  And very, very fattening.
