Astrud Gilberto

Born:

Astrud Gilberto - vocalist, recording artist, composer. Astrud Gilberto, known as "The Girl from Ipanema" and often referred to as "The Queen of Bossa-Nova," is an artist with roots firmly planted in Brazilian music. Her music has become an interesting combination of the sensual rhythms of Brazil and American Pop and Jazz. Born in the Northeast of Brazil, in the state of Bahia, one of three sisters of a German father and a Brazilian mother, Astrud grew up in Rio de Janeiro. She immigrated to the United States in the early 1960s, where she resides since then. Astrud was first introduced to the World at large in 1964 through "The Girl From Ipanema," the Grammy-winning recording with Stan Getz and her then-husband João Gilberto (the father of Bossa Nova)

Ester Wiesnerova: Blue Journal

Read "Blue Journal" reviewed by Bruce Lindsay


Sometimes, catching the eye can be as important as catching the ear, at least in the beginning. Slovakian singer and composer Ester Wiesnerova definitely catches the eye with her debut release, Blue Journal. Inside a plain brown cardboard box is something of a tactile, as well as visual, treat:--a book covered in rich blue felt, full ...

From George Coleman to Meeco: Ten Overlooked Classics

Read "From George Coleman to Meeco: Ten Overlooked Classics" reviewed by Chris May


The only thread running through this installment of Building A Jazz Library is that of unsung quality. No particular artist is spotlighted, nor any particular genre. There are simply ten, randomly selected albums, recorded in the US and Europe between 1953 and 2021, which show jazz off at its finest, but which, for one reason or ...
