"Is there any need for an introduction to Astrud Gilberto, The Girl From Ipanema, who brought the nonchalant 'vaga' vocal style of the Brazilian new wave to international attention and launched a thousand indie-girl records and fantasies in a time and place she never imagined.... I think not. As we present her finest album, a collaboration with the space age, Jetsons-go-bossa sound of the immortal Walter Wanderley, Brazil's finest organist/arranger and his excellent trio, augmented by American friend percussionist Bobby Rosengarden (of Miles Davis fame) and bossa nova master João Gilberto on guitar, this is as close as we are going to get to a totally perfect album! The wonderfully erotic vaga stylings of the timeless Astrud whisper from the sci-fi bachelor party soundscapes and unique arrangements of Walter Wanderley in a way that either grabs your heart, or quite frankly, you are dead in the water. Maybe only one or two singers can do this for me....but that's another story!"
