"... one of the Brazilian songstress’ best albums."
- Encyclopedia of Popular Music

At this point in her career Astrud Gilberto was broadening her sound, adding more American pop and standards and moving away slightly from the bossa nova that made her famous. In addition to some Brazilian fare, Beach Samba spans a wide range of eras and material, mainly ballads and mid-tempo numbers from contemporary writers such as Tim Hardin, a couple of standards and even a Lovin' Spoonful cover song with a guest appearance from Gilberto's young son. Arranged by Don Sebesky and Eumir Deodato, who also contributed an original song.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
