Summer Sounds

The boxed set of The Bossa Nova Years by Stan Getz has been on my wishlist for a few years now but it's a little dear for me to pay so how happy was I when I stopped by HMV during my lunch hour today at First Canadian and found a copy of Verve's Jazz 'Round Midnight series featuring Stan Getz, Astrud Gilberto and Joao Gilberto for the value price of $12.99?? It has a good sample of the songs I'm familiar with, like The Girl from Ipanema, Corcovado and It Might As Well Be Spring. Listening to the tracks on this disc immediately bring to mind refreshingly cool caipirinhas sipped out on the patio under a smiling sun. Mmmm...

I love 'Girl from Ipanema', but it reminds me of my Music Production & Engineering courses at Berklee....
