This well-appointed collection from Brazilian jazz vocalist Astrud Gilberto looks beyond her signature 1964 track, "The Girl from Ipanema," at some of the other great performances from her prime years. Issued in 2006 as a European import, Non-Stop to Brazil relies heavily on Gilberto's mid- to late-'60s Verve catalog, pulling highlights from albums like The Shadow of Your Smile ("Take Me to Aruanda"), Look to the Rainbow ("Lugar Bonito [Pretty Place]"), and A Certain Smile, a Certain Sadness ("Tu, Mi Delirio"). Her beguiling delivery of these bossa nova, samba, and American jazz tracks reveals why she became an international star.
