Stan Getz

Stanley Getz (February 2, 1927 – June 6, 1991) was an American jazz saxophone player. Getz was known as "The Sound" because of his warm, lyrical tone, his prime influence being the wispy, mellow timbre of his idol, Lester Young. Coming to prominence in the late 1940s with Woody Herman's big band, Getz is described by critic Scott Yanow as "one of the all-time great tenor saxophonists". Getz went on to perform in bebop, cool jazz and third stream, but is perhaps best known for popularizing bossa nova, as in the worldwide hit single "The Girl from Ipanema" (1964). more »

Quiet nights of quiet stars
Quiet chords from my guitar
Floating on the silence
That surrounds us

Quiet thoughts and quiet dreams
Quiet walks by quiet streams
And a window that looks out
On Corcovado
Oh, how lovely

Um cantinho, um violão
Esse amor, uma canção
Pra fazer feliz
A quem se ama

Muita calma pra pensar
E ter tempo pra sonhar
Da janela vê-se o Corcovado
O Redentor, que lindo

Quero a vida sempre assim
Com você perto de mim
Até o apagar da velha chama

E eu, que era triste
Descrente desse mundo
Ao encontrar você eu conheci
O que é felicidade, meu amor

Quero a vida sempre assim
Com você perto de mim
Até o apagar da velha chama

E eu, que era triste
Descrente desse mundo
Ao encontrar você eu conheci
O que é a felicidade, meu amor
