Getz / Gilberto
Stan Getz & João Gilberto
Getz/Gilberto is an album by American saxophonist Stan Getz and Brazilian guitarist João Gilberto, featuring pianist and composer Antônio Carlos Jobim, who also composed many of the tracks. It was released in March 1964 on Verve Records. The album features the vocals of Astrud Gilberto on two tracks, "Garota de Ipanema" and "Corcovado". The artwork was done by artist Olga Albizu. Getz/Gilberto is a jazz and bossa nova album, and includes tracks such as "Desafinado", "Corcovado", and "Garota de Ipanema", the last of which received a Grammy Award for Record of the Year, and launched Astrud Gilberto to international stardom. "Doralice" and "Para Machucar Meu Coração" strengthened Gilberto's and Jobim's respect for the tradition of pre-bossa nova samba.
Getz/Gilberto is considered the record that popularized bossa nova worldwide, and was one of the best-selling jazz albums of all time. The album was also a commercial success, selling more than 2 million copies in 1964. It was later featured in Rolling Stone's and Vibe's lists of best albums of all time. Getz/Gilberto was widely acclaimed by music critics, who praised Gilberto's vocals and the album's bossa nova groove and minimalism.

Light My Fire
Like Diana Krall, Eliane Elias is a jazz piano nerd with a cooing vocal style and a high photograph-ability quotient. They've both found great success but Elias has an extra hindrance to jumping that last hurdle to mainstream acceptance -- she is a flat-out amazing jazz musician. Over twenty albums, Elias has recorded post-bop, bossa nova, classical, smooth jazz, swank vocal sets, a piano duet set with Herbie Hancock and her own unique take on Brazilian/American jazz (the Sao Paolo native made her pilgrimage to NYC at age twenty). Here, the singer/pianist manages to tame her less commercial acoustic style without losing the bop spark that makes her finest recordings so special. Light My Fire was cut over three short days yet manages to sound plush and sensuous without ever feeling sterile or bland. The amazing supporting cast helps: the legendary Gilberto Gil and Oscar-Castro Neves join a Brazilian rhythm section while Elias' family represent the American side of her musical personality: ex-husband Randy Brecker and daughter Amanda slot right next to current spouse Marc Johnson on a tropical mix of bossa classics, '60s pop hits and originals.

Soul Station is an album by jazz saxophonist Hank Mobley, released in 1960 on Blue Note Records, catalogue BLP 4031. Along with Roll Call, the LP that followed this release, this is one of Mobley's best-known albums. Recorded at the Van Gelder Studio and rooted in the hard bop style, Mobley's quartet features Art Blakey, and two future bandmates from his time in the Miles Davis Quintet, Wynton Kelly and Paul Chambers. The album's bookends are two standards, "Remember" by Irving Berlin and "If I Should Lose You" by Ralph Rainger and Leo Robin. Between these standards are four new Mobley compositions, featuring the bluesy title track and the uptempo "This I Dig of You."
In the liner notes to the Rudy Van Gelder CD edition, jazz critic Bob Blumenthal explains how the album is understood to be, for Mobley, what Saxophone Colossus or Giant Steps were for Sonny Rollins or John Coltrane respectively. Blumenthal goes on to describe the recording as "one of the finest programs of music on Blue Note or any other label." Awarding the album five stars, AllMusic reviewer Stacia Proefrock concluded: "Overall, this is a stellar set from one of the more underrated musicians of the bop era."
