so nice

Sometimes, in summer, you just need a bit of Gilberto in your life. Bebel used to be one of my go-tos and “So Nice” was on an album that I distinctly remember pumping over the stereo speakers in a rented convertible driving around Miami. Cheesy and a bit stereotypical? Maybe… but it felt somehow perfect. But when I’m really in the mood for a classic summer style tune, one that I can play softly while sitting by the water with a refreshing cocktail? I go straight to the source and kick back with Astrud Gilberto (& Stan Getz). Nothing like “Girl from Ipanema”! A few videos to whet your Gilberto appetite;).
