Σαν σήμερα, 29 Μαρτίου 1943 γεννήθηκε στο Salvador της Βραζιλίας η Astrud Evangelina Weinert, περισσότερο γνωστή ως Astrud Gilberto, από τις εμβληματικές φυσιογνωμίες της βραζιλιάνικης μουσικής του δεύτερου μισού του 20ου αι., και από τις πλέον αναγνωρίσιμες, με πλήθη …μιμητριών, φωνές. Την ακούμε σε δυο τραγούδια του Jobim. “Aqua De Beber” και “Corcovado (Quiet Nights Of Quiet Stars)”. Στο δεύτερο συμμετέχουν ο σύζυγός της Joao Gilberto [κιθάρα, φωνητικά] και οι Stan Getz [τενόρο σαξόφωνο], Gary Burton [vibes].

On this date, March 29, 1943, Astrud Evangelina Weinert, better known as Astrud Gilberto, was born in Salvador, Brazil. She is one of the emblematic figures of Brazilian music for the second part of the 20th century, and one of the most recognizable voices, with huge crowds of imitators. We hear her on two songs by Jobim. “Aqua De Beber” and “Corcovado (Quiet Nights Of Quiet Stars)”. On the second one, the band includes her husband Joao Gilberto [guitar, vocals] Stan Getz [tenor saxophone], and Gary Burton [vibes].

    I definitely remember the first, since it got airplay on popular radio. The second is a sweet tribute to love. Perfect for relaxed Sunday listening. Bossa nova was “boss” as we used to say 🙂

    We have few LPs of this beautiful Brazil-born singer. Bossa nova which she helped introduce to the world beyond Brazil has an amazing effect.
