Stan Getz, Antônio Carlos Jobim, João & Astrud Gilberto - Corcovado (Tokimonsta Remix)
Been jammin’ so hard on Verve Remixed: The First Ladies since it was released a little over a week ago. Besides the masterful remix of Ella Fitzgerald’s “Blue Skies” by the one and only Maya Jane Coles (which itself is reason enough to buy the whole album…), Tokimonsta’s take on ”Corcovado” is a must have for some late-evening summer grooving. More to come from this stellar album soon.
