Ipanema Redux & Martina DaSilva

I’ve found nobody, not even the immortal Astrud Gilberto, sings “The Girl from Ipanema” as good as Martina DaSilva. I’ve also found she sings it a lot, which is great. Every rendition adds something new. Check out other versions here.

Martina is supported by Tony Glausi (trumpet), Liya Grigoryan (piano), Russell Hall (bass) and Charles Goold (drums). The song is by the great Antônio Carlos Jobim and Vinícius de Moraes.

Maybe Martina’s haunting vaporwave version with Adam Neely is still the best (to me at least).

The Girl from Ipanema & Slight Return

Earlier I bemoaned the fact that there was not a complete version of this haunting, dreamy version of “The Girl from Ipanema” by Martina DeSilva and Adam Neely.

Then AzsaturnDX kindly posted a link to the complete version, which is now officially my favorite forever.

The Girl from Ipanema & Martina DaSilva

The Girl from Ipanema (Antônio Carlos Jobim) covered by Flor da Saudade with the golden voice of Martina DaSilva.

I can’t identify the other musicians. Martina DaSilva came to my attention when I watched this fascinating musical breakdown of the song by Adam Neely:

Then somebody did a great service to humanity by isolating just Martina DaSilva’s part of the video:

This has to be the most haunting version of TGfI ever. 

UPDATE: AzsaturnDX  provided a link to Adam Neely’s complete audio version at this link. This is going to be the definitive version of tGfI for me.
