The Girl From Ipanema
Youtube ^ | Jan 3, 2012 | Josh Turner

Posted on 06/07/2014 5:40:57 PM PDT by GrandJediMasterYoda

The Girl From Ipanema

Also known as Garota de Ipanema. Josh Turner and Larkin Dodgen attempt the Tom Jobim classic that made Bossa Nova popular and launched Astrud Gilberto's singing career. Forgive my Portuguese. Guitar is a Gitane D-500; mics are a pair of Audio Technica AT2050's, camera is a Kodak Playsport. Thanks to Carson McKee (channel: drakeelliot) for helping with the recording. Please feel free to leave thoughts and suggestions!

Not politics but I thought this girls voice was incredible. They don't seem to be pushing any liberal agenda like homosexuality, prostitution, gangs or drugs so I guess they'll never get a record deal, but still they are very good.

Eastern... Number One to the Sun. The voice is that of Astrud Gilberto.

Her daughter, Bebel Gilberto, is pretty good too.

Great great song,a true classic...particularly the long version (which didn't get much airplay).Portuguese is such a beautiful language.

She definitely has natural talent. Vocal training in holding her notes and voice control would make her fabulous.

Basia made a album a few years ago, “It’s That Girl Again”, which was really good....She looks like a Polish grandmother now, but the voice is as good as ever.

Brazil 65 was the best.

Blame it on the Bossa Nova.

Three years ago, I visited the bar Garota de Ipanema in Ipanema where the song was written with my two daughters. We went across the street to Vinicius Piano Bar where they play great live Brazilian Bossa Nova Jazz. It wasn't my girls' cup of tea, but it was quite enjoyable and great fun to see the place. I liked the song a lot when Astrud Gilberto recorded it and I was only 13 at the time. That was such a rich era for music!

Similarly, Astrud Gilberto was a novice when she recorded the song. I guess you could say she lacked voice control, too, but it fit so well with the song. I think they waited until the last minute to tell her that there was a song they wanted her to record at the studio.

her voice reminds me of someone else... maybe a little of Amy MacDonald, and a little of that dude who goes by the name Passenger. I think it is someone else though who she is reminding me of, just I have no idea who most of these pop singers are.

Very talented kids. I hope they will write some of their own music in time. I watched several of their videos and they have a lot of talent and ability.

Please pass my request to them to record, “Jolene” Dolly Parton’s hit. Miley Cyrus did a fair job of it (before she went off the rails). Ask them to slow it down and let Miss Larkin use her voice to really plea the lyrics.

Thanks for posting.

“Write their own music” is exactly what they need to do or get someone else to do it for them. I see so much incredible talent like this today but none of them write their own music which is truly how real music careers start. Just think: John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Buddy Holly, Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, were all about the same age as these two - they had talent but they did something that pushed them to the next level: They wrote their own music. I’ll never understand the purpose of shows like American idol. Good singers are a dime a dozen. But good singers who write great songs are a billion dollars per.

Yes, she was the wife of Joao Gilberto, a singer who recorded with Jobim (a fabulous songwriter). They wanted a version in English, and Joao's wife, Astrud, had the best English. (As it happens, I believe she also had perfect or close to perfect pitch). Her voice inflection -- or lack of it -- was so extremely cool and impersonal, like a model on a runway, that kind of in your face "I'm gorgeous." You couldn't see her, but her voice sounds like you'd imagine coming from all those beautiful girls in the mirror pic above! {^)

Josh and Larkin.

Best duet I’ve heard in 30 years.

Just listened to about 20 of Josh Larkin Youtubes.

Never heard of him before, but an amazing talent.

You left out Elvis, Judy Garland, Celine Dion and Frank Sinatra.

I like them both.

Nice thing about thee standards, you can like several artists on the same songs/melodies.

There are a couple of Josh Turner’s renditions I didn’t care for too much. It also seems as though the takes may have been dubbed or 3 piece with rhythm is what is being heard. Also, the posture of the singers frequently don’t favor their best performance, but the audio is great, so it causes me to wonder.

Josh must’ve picked it up in part from his father.
