Wow, I just bought this too. It's amazing. I'd reccomend the Sinatra/Jobim album (which led me to picking up Getz/Gilberto) and Getz's Jazz Samba, not to mention Astrud's stuff.

better than Sinatra/Jobim's official collaboration is side 1 of the album Sinatra and Company, which features Sinatra with Jobim.

I saw a Sinatra and Friends thing on tv in a hotel once, where he and Jobim were sitting in chairs around a faux table and lamp set doing duets, it was sweet. Ella was his other friend, and he would just sit cross-legged on the side of the stage enjoying her tearing it up.

gilberto's got some really great solo stuff too.

See also Astrud Gilberto's solo stuff, especially Look to the Rainbow (1965). Beach Samba is good, but also includes some non-bossa pop stuff. All of Joao Gilberto's records from the early 60s are very good, and of course look for A.C. Jobim's Wave (1967).

There are lots of good Brazilian bossa artists though. My current fave record of the moment is singer Joyce's Passarinho Urbano from 1977. Same breezy style, but songwriting is a little more idiosynractic, even though the actual sound is pure Brazil.

there's a Getz/Gilberto live album that came out shortly after that that also features Astrud on half the songs (doing Corcovado, One Note Samba, etc.) that is on a par with the studio album.

I recommend the soundtrack to "Black Orpheus", it was the precursor to a lot of the early 60s brazilian crossover jazzpop.

Try
Getz au Go Go and
Astrud/Walt Wanderley - A Certain Smile, A Certain Sadness

ah Getz au Go Go, yeah that's the one I was thinking of. Every bit as enjoyable as the studio album.

AC Jobim wrote some of the songs on that album. My favorite albums of his are Wave (I get this and Tide confused...whichever one has a giraffe on the cover art is the one I'm thinking of) and Stone Flower.

Nara Leao
Stan Getz & Luiz Bonfa & Maria Toledo
Jorge Ben

Elis & Tom, 1974. Astrud was a nice amateur singer, but Elis Regina rules. Anything by João is worth getting--he was as good as Miles Davis, Sinatra, one of them. Personally, I find Getz a bit wank-oid, nice tone, but really just ranch dressing on the tasty greens of the Brazilians.

Understated Joanne Brackeen on piano there, interestingly, not who I'd expect

one year passes...

76 may not be as perfect as the first, but I love it more nonetheless
