Music Monday: “The Girl from Ipanema” by Stan Getz

A mellow Monday morning in May and I am thinking of Stan Getz. This video of Getz, Astrud Gilberto and “The Girl from Ipanema” is just the thing for a beautiful Spring day.

Coltrane and Getz remain my favorite Jazz instrumentalists. Their sounds are quite different, different enough that you can like them both.

My mother had this album when I was young. My wife received it as a Christmas gift from my friend Keith a couple of years ago.

It has aged well indeed.
