The Girl From Ipanema

“The Girl From Ipanema” is the song that, for most Americans, first created an awareness of Brazilian music and Bossa Nova. Written by the great Antonio Carlos Jobim, it was a 1964 single version that became a US and international hit, peaking at #5 on the US singles charts. The single featured American saxophonist Stan Getz, Brazilian singer-guitarist Joao Gilberto and his then-wife Astrid as the main vocalist.

In spite of its international popularity and the prominence of the guitar in the style, it was not picked up by instrumental guitar bands. The one exception seems an over-produced version by the Shadows on an album called “The Shadows with Strings Attached”.

I decided to try a more traditional sixties approach.
