Astrud for Lovers is a strong collection of love songs performed by Brazilian singer Astrud Gilberto. Her wispy and melancholic vocals are featured in a variety of settings recorded between 1963 and 1969 for Verve. The earliest tune, "Corcovado (Quiet Nights of Quiet Stars)," is taken from the legendary Getz/Gilberto album that marked Astrud's star-making first recording. The rest of the collection finds her with Stan Getz again doing a sweet version of "It Might as Well Be Spring" in 1964.
Compilation album released in the U.S.A. on Brazilian singer Astrud Gilberto (Bahia, 1940). She features twelve songs from her diverse discography that stands in the melodic and romantic look of the compositions. The subject of love has always been a favorite in the production of Astrud, both accompanied by orchestra and small ensembles in which artists appear as Stan Getz, Antonio Carlos Jobim, Joao Gilbert, Walter Wanderley or Kenny Burrell among others, interpreting Brazilian rhythms, especially bossa, ballad or slow.
