Although it shouldn't be mistaken for a definitive compilation of his bossa nova recordings, Jazz 'Round Midnight: Bossa Nova is a good sampler of Stan Getz's most popular work, featuring 13 tracks including "Desafinado," "Bahia," "Ebony Samba," "It Might As Well Be Spring," "Sambalero" and "The Girl from Ipanema." ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
