It’s true. 

Talented and temperamental, dedicated and demanding, Stan Getz was once described as “a great bunch of guys” due to his many moods and personalities.Turns out one of them loved Bossa Nova. Getz recorded five Bossa albums in two years, including the definitive version of Bossa Nova’s most famous song:

Our playlist is filled with many of his Bossa best, along with three seldom told stories about those heady mid-60’s years.  

Happy Listening,
Scott Adams
