Stan Getz meets Joao & Astrud Gilberto: New York 1964 is a live recording of bossa nova in the making. In 1990, the Giants of Jazz label released a live recording of a 1964 New York City performance featuring Stan Getz, Joao Gilberto and Astrud Gilberto, (Joao's then-wife).
The album, entitled "Stan Getz meets Joao & Astrud Gilberto" is actually misleading, as the trio had met previously in 1963 for the wildly successful recording of "Getz/Gilberto". The album was released in '64 and set off a bossa nova frenzy in the U.S. As a result of the album's success, the Brazilian Gilbertos and the American Getz played a number of shows in the U.S., such as the one recorded here.
Released as part of the "Immortal Concerts" series, this recording exhibits the chemistry the three obviously shared and captures bossa nova in its infancy, as it was still being created and defined.
