    Great choices.
    I really like Astrud’s voice but it’s always reminded me of the French Ye-Ye singers, which tends to throws me off a little whenever I hear her singing the type of songs she does. Plus, I admit to being totally biased–like I said elsewhere, Elis e Tom is *the* album for bossa nova songs for me and I’m pretty fond of the cover of Corcovado on that album.

    “Ye-Ye” was new to me. Please provide a DNA connection between them and this. Tomorrow will be fine.
