Album: 'Getz/Gilberto', by Stan Getz and Joao Gilberto (1964)

The credit for starting the 1960s boom in bossa nova - a more melodious and less rhythmically assertive form of samba - goes to guitarist Charlie Byrd, who returned to the US from a concert tour of South America in 1961 with recordings of Brazilian music, among them works by Joao Gilberto and Antonio Carlos Jobim.
