i have astrud gilberto singing this song on a cd of hers. it's a beautiful jazz standard that i got to play very regularly with at least 3 different working bands, over a decade. i absolutely *love* playing bossa nova's! : )

I believe this is actually from the Getz Au Go Go album, which I have on vinyl somewhere. Stan and Astrud sounded great together.

[2] yes. that's the version i have. live 1964, NY. with gary burton and kenny burrell. this and one other track from that album are on an Astrud Gilberto compilation CD i have, on Verve Records. good stuff.

[3] Yeah, and Chuck Israels on bass. Groovy blue cover, very early 60s Verve. Getz does a nice Here's That Rainy Day on it, too. Man, I gotta get that album on CD - been too long.
