'This album was truly a joy to do. The idea for the album was reinforced by a conversation I had with John Travolta at a party several years ago. I was talking to John about Stan Getz and how I wanted to do a bossa album. Suddenly he broke out into song, singing a Jobim bossa beautifully. I was surprised and asked him about this. He said he was a big fan of Stan Getz and this music, saying 'I am a child of the 60's'. Now years later, I felt it was an appropriate time to revist this timeless, gentle and classic music that broke out onto the music scene during a very turbulent time. These songs provide me a 'canvas' similar to the great standards of the American songbook. They should be a part of every player's and singer's repertoire regardless of the style they wish to pursue. I was very fortunate to receive an exact copy of Stan Getz's actual tenor saxophone mouthpiece from RS Berkeley for this project. I used it on this album to create the 'timbre' on my horn that caught everyone's eat at that time. I would like to thank my brother Bob, who is a great admirer of Stan's playing and the Bossa Nova for all his help in producing this album, and as always Irv Kratka, for his tireless support in forwarding the great American songbook.' (Glenn Zottola).
