Born March 30, 1940, in Bahia, Brazil, Astrud Gilberto married João Gilberto in 1959. In the mid '60s, they got divorced and she started a relationship with Stan Getz. When Astrud sang on the seminal album João Gilberto, Stan Getz, and Antonio Carlos Jobim made, it was her first time singing professionally, and when you consider how sexy this bossa nova stuff is and think about how her husband and her boyfriend were both involved, well, it gets interesting. Some of my favorite Astrud Gilberto tracks are below. This here's your open thread, take care of it. Have a great weekend!
