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)
After witnessing yesterday's horrifying ransacking and disgraceful occupation of our nation's Capitol building, you deserve a treat.

A treasure trove of melodic invention, distilled emotion, and vivacious wit, the American Songbook can also serve as a gilded cage, confining jazz vocalists to oft-interpreted material written during the first half of the 20th century. Sacramento jazz vocalist Beth Duncan has never been one to do things by the book, and her new album I’m All Yours exemplifies the ample creative rewards of grappling with the present moment. A collection of songs written by Oakland-based composer and lyricist Martine Tabilio, I’m All Yours is Duncan’s third release, and it’s a persuasively swinging project brimming with smart new songs that deliver many of the pleasures found in American Songbook standards
