HDtracks.com Puts The Verve Music Group's
Legendary Recording Getz/Gilberto in High Definition

New York, N.Y.- HDtracks.com, the world's pre-eminent high-resolution music downloading Web site, offering spectacular CD and DVD-audio-quality downloads, is pleased to announce the addition of The Verve Music Group's legendary audiophile classic Getz/Gilberto to its ever-growing online store, in stunning, crystal-clear 96kHz/24-bit sound. The 10-track Super Audio CD (SACD) features world-famous jazz artists Stan Getz (tenor saxophone) and João Gilberto (guitar, vocals) in a 1963 recording of timeless standards. Getz/Gilberto also features world-renowned musicians Antonio Carlos Jobim (piano), Tommy Williams (bass), Milton Banana (drums) and Astrud Gilberto (vocals).

Tracks include such classics as "The Girl From Ipanema," "Doralice," "Para Machuchar Meu Coração," "Desafinado," "Corcovado" ("Quiet Nights of Quiet Stars"), "Só Danço Samba," "O Grande Amor" and "Vivo Sonhando" ("Dreamer").

The recording puts listeners in the middle of the session, revealing every nuance of Gilberto's lyrical voice, Getz's sultry tenor saxophone, the easy, laid-back vocals of João Gilberto, and the fabulous piano work of the master composer himself, Jobim. The 96kHz/24-bit techonology transports these amazing artists directly into the listeners' living rooms with stunning,
crystal-clear sound.

As with all HDtracks.com downloads, Getz/Gilberto includes full PDF liner notes to provide context and enrich the listening experience.

HDtracks.com welcomed The Verve Music Group in April, with albums from legendary jazz vocalists Billie Holiday and Diana Krall.

"Getz/Gilberto is a great addition to our growing library from The Verve Music Group," said HDtracks co-founder David Chesky. "On HDtracks.com, customers will experience these
world-renowned jazz musicians in remarkable, crystal-clear, DVD-audio-quality sound for the first time."
