Beautiful Stan Gets version!  This composition is from Tom Jobim. A fantastic Brazilian musician!
I suggest that RP should play more Brazilian music. And there is much more beautiful music in Brazil other than "Bossa Nova".

Do you like it?  That is literally the only thing that matters.
Classic genius!!

You just have to improvise I guess ;-) 

I wanted to comment how great the guitar sounds on this one, so close to improvising my 9 to a 10....Long Live RP!!

Very true. 
I think I'm hearing brushes played on drum heads, not hissing.
Too rhythmic and consistent to be hissing to me. 
 

Stan “The Sound” Getz. It does not get much better. Thanks for playing for me when I was a child dad, RIP. Thanks Bill for keeping the memories alive!
Can't help imagining a scene from a film which involves Leslie Nielsen doing something at a swanky embassy party which is going to cause an international incident...
Great palate cleaner on a lazy afternoon.  Great classic jazz, love that you can experience that here.
always good.
Wonderful.  Brings back great childhood memories.  Still fresh.
This is the first time I'm hearing this piece, and I want to turn up my PC speakers loud enough at work for my neighbors to file a complaint with HR.
One of the best jazz.
I have LPs that hiss tick crackle and pop Kinda like Rice Krispies

I'm also hearing the hiss of the reed in the sax....this track, with all it's hisses, is pure bliss....9+....Long Live RP!!
Top 5 greatest songs of all time. 
Whatever Stan wants, Stan obtains.

The FLAC steam & good headphones lets you hear the tape hiss on this track {#Music}
This only adds to the appeal!

Great musicians I'm sure but this is one of those that leaves me cold, well more than cold really.  Although as I write this the change in tempo gets better, that bossa nova thing just really grates, like a pre programmed keyboard.  But hey, that's what's great about RP, if I'd liked it it would have been a new discovery and that would be good, as it is I can add it to my very small list of RP plays that I really dislike. 

Ah, Joe Strummer, balance is restored...

As great as this is, I dare say the slower tempo Bossa Nova version with Joao and the slushy lyrics was even.....better

 
Yeah, that is a great version, but I've always liked this one too.  
I don't know why everyone complains about so much sax & violins in society today. Society could use more music like this.

(RIP Gilda Radner)
Yes, yes, yes. More Bossa Nova. And more sax in general.

Very nice.

{#Guitarist}                              Why is there no saxophone player?
{#Dancingbanana}We definitely need bass and sax emoticons.
That is such a classic. 
YES!  Bill we NEED more jazz on RP! Please!

How does this have any rating below a 10? Seriously? Get your head out of your own bubble.
