Stan Getz Lyrics

Se você disser que eu desafino, amor
Saiba que isto em mim provoca imensa dor
Só privilegiados têm ouvido igual ao seu
Eu possuo apenas o que Deus me deu

Se você insiste em classificar
Meu comportamento anti-musical
Eu mesmo mentindo devo argumentar
Que isto é bossa nova, que isto é muito natural

O que você não sabe nem sequer pressente
É que os desafinados também têm um coração

Fotografei você na minha Rolleyflex
Revelou-se a sua enorme ingratidão
Só não poderá falar assim do meu amor
Este é o maior que você pode encontrar, viu?

Você com a sua música esqueceu o principal
Que no peito dos desafinados
No fundo do peito bate calado
No peito dos desafinados
Também bate um coração

it's easier once you "get" the groove.

once you hear the dundum ch ch dundum ch ch dundum ch ch... everything else is just embellishment

it helps to hear some clips of samba grooves in isolation

I'm laying on my couch now, the balcony doors are open, the sun is shining and I can smell the spring. Somewhere in my houseblock one of my neighbours is playing Desafinado by Stan Getz. A great way to spend my Sunday afternoon and get happy.

This is what I call "making the saxophone speak"


The sax and the rhythm section both spoke to me in the '60' and I became a lifelong devotee of the genre. I absolutely LOVE Jobim and Ivan Lins' work and bossa novas' vocal artists as well: Joao Gilberto, Astrid Gilberto's novelty songs and even Sergio Mendez's playful grooves. Nothing relaxes me like listening to "Jobim's Finest Hour" CD. I am not alone with my absolute amour of the music. American performers from Herbie Hancock to Michael Franks, Quincy Jones to Johnny Mathis have all spent time in Brazil and worked with the talented artists there.

Damn, that takes me back: Stan's feathering gives me goosebumps.
