Although the seeds of bossa nova were laid in the mid-1950s, it took two early-1960s Stan Getz records for it to truly blossom: 1962's Jazz Samba with Charlie Byrd and 1964's Getz/Gilberto with Joao Gilberto. Thus, it makes sense that Desmond and crew entered the studio in the summer of 1964 to make their own contributions to the style.
