Reviews:

''Getz/Gilberto'', is a jazz bossa nova album released in 1964 by the American saxophonist Stan Getz and the Brazilian guitarist Joćo Gilberto, and featuring composer and musician Antonio Carlos Jobim.

Its release created a bossa nova craze in the United States, and subsequently internationally. It brought together Stan Getz, who had already performed the genre on his LP ''Jazz Samba'', Joćo Gilberto (one of the creators of the style), and Jobim, a celebrated Brazilian compositor (and also one of the main creators of the genre), who wrote most of the songs in the album.

It became one of the best-selling jazz albums of all times, and turned Astrud Gilberto, who sang on the tracks "The Girl from Ipanema" and "Corcovado", into an international sensation. - Wikipedia
