A Certain Smile, A Certain Sadness - Astrud Gilberto & The Walter Wanderley Trio

A Certain Smile, A Certain Sadness
Is there any need for an introduction to Astrud Gilberto, The Girl From Ipanema, who brought the nonchalant 'Vaga' vocal style of the Brasilian 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, Brasil's finest organist/arranger and his excellent trio, augmented by American friend percussionist Bobby Rosengarden (of Miles Davis fame) and Bossa Nova master Joao 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. The Walter Wanderley Trio featured the immeasurable talents of Walter Wanderley--organ & piano; Claudio Slon--drums, Jose Marino--bass. Astrud Gilberto, vocals; Bobby Rosengarden, percussion. Joao Gilberto—guitar One of the BEST albums ever made anywhere in the world ever anywhere! Wonderfully remastered in the most painstaking RevOla way with the usual wonderful Rev-Ola packaging and very special notes! A MUST HAVE for all fans of Bossa Nova, Jazz, Brasilian music of all types, sexy breathy vocals, let's face it, anyone who isn't actually dead, and some who will rise again specifically to listen to this album!
