5.0 out of 5 stars The best of the Best of Astrud cds! Aug. 26 2011
Format:Audio CD
I fell in love with Astrud Gilberto's soft gentle voice the first time I heard Girl From Ipanema on the radio back in the sixties, and still feel the same way about her today. Unpretentious and raw in a little-girl kind of way, she remains the voice of Brazilian Samba to me. Perfectly complementing her voice is the lazy saxophone of the incomparable Stan Getz and various soft-strumming gut string guitarists. I have bought many cds over the years, trying to find all my favourite Astrud songs, but dearly wish that THIS one had come out sooner---- because they are all on this one! A true "Best Of" cd------ buy it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Creme del e creme May 26 2006
By todd rich - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
However you slice it , Gilberto Astrud is one of the most prolific and pioneering voices in modern day music. After hearing my initial introduction of her vocals in " The Girl from Ipenema" , I became instantly infatuated with her singing. After hearing several more songs , I became instantly hooked. Labeled as the " Queen of Bossa Nova" , Gilberto Astrud transcends musical genres and captivates audiences from around the world. Astrud has influenced such reknowned artist as Sade and Sinead O'Connor. Not only is she an artist that has a captivating style that's so simplistically unforgettable....she has compiled a library of music that will influence musical generations in the future. This "millennium collection" captures the esential songs that catipulted her musical career into symbolic status. Needless to say , I highly recommend this cd.

Romantic, jazzy, relaxing. What more could you ask for? Astrud's voice has romantic, lilting quality that is very unique. To my ear, there are a few spots where she sounds a little off-key, but for me it just adds to her charm. I could listen to this CD for hours on end - and I have. I wish I knew more about music so I knew all the right words to describe the music. All I can say is, every single song on this album is a winner, and the instrument playing is superb. You will not regret buying this CD. Ah...so nice!

5.0 out of 5 stars Smooth Jazz Nov. 5 2011

Sort of lounge music but if you like soft jazz this is great. Nobody does Girl From Ipanema like Astrud. The whole CD is good. Play this back-to-back with Sergio Mendes and Brazil '66 and you are likely to go to sleep smiling.

She rode the train with Jobim to the top of the Bossa Nova craze, and she's knock down, drop dead great.

The musicians, HER sultry voice...it is all as I remember when I was a mere child and my parents would dance around the room while she sang in the background! Lovely, simply lovely! Listen to the snippets available and be removed from the present day stress and transported to another time.
