Description
The album Getz/Gilberto won album of the year in 1964, a truly artistic and beautiful collection of songs. Unfortunately corny Bossa Nova arrangements were hijacked by Hotel elevators.The real stuff is great music. Photo is Carlos Jobim, Stan Getz and Joao Gilberto.This is a small tribute song that I wrote.

Oh, this is DELICIOUS...
Beautiful ethereal tone... sublime sense of rhythm, pacing, and groove... Just pure loveliness from stem to stern... textbook articulation, love the soloing choices, the space is full, yet artfully sparse. Mmmmmmm, wonderful work!!!!

Hi Mark. You continue to provide some of the best guitar moments MJ has to offer. And that is saying something. Love the wonderfully, resonant tone you dialled in for this and the complex picking and chord interplay is just exquisite. D/L. Bravo, Peter.

Hi Mark....
I love these South American rhythms. Your take on the Bossa Nova is a great tribute to Gilberto and a graceful piece to boot. The phrasing of the piece made my day.

Take care.

Stan Getz
As a teenager, my best instrument was sax. Stan Getz was my first sax hero. I know what you mean about the real stuff. He would've loved the long intro, the understated sensuality, the soloist's sense of comfort and confidence. Really nice tribute.

Bossa Nova is just too cool for words. It made me realize the guitar could create a whole new sound and opened me up to experimenting with my own composing. You play so well here. Melodic, sweet but always flowing.

Interesting, isn't it, how each innovation gets turned in the next generation's pablum? It's good to listen to music again with fresh ears and realize why something that is now mainstream was at one time revolutionary.

Much enjoyed this.

Not surprised...
Haven't been around much, but your music was the first I looked for this evening...
What a beautiful track this is, played with your typical sensitivity and attention to the nuances of detail and intensity. Those cool chords on the guitar always strike me as particularly mellow and engaging. This is yet another wonderful composition to add to your wide collection of recordings. When's your cd coming out? Wonderful, Mark. Thank you.
