Jeff Rupert, along with vocalist Veronica Swift (Thelonious Monk Vocal Competition runner-up), Marty Morell (from the Bill Evans trio) Richard Drexler and Ben Kramer revisit classics made famous by Stan Getz. The Bossa Nova recordings including Desafinado, Girl from Ipanema, and much more; Early Autumn, Moonlight in Vermont, Pennies from Heaven, Here’s that Rainy Day, and other Getz recordings that became household favorites.
