João Gilberto is a bossa nova album by João Gilberto, originally released in Brazil as a vinyl LP in 1973 and reissued on CD in 1988. João Gilberto released another album named João Gilberto in 1961, as well as several EPs with only his name as title. The minimal instrumentation – just Gilberto's guitar and voice, plus Sonny Carr's very sparse percussion – and the relentless beat give the album a hypnotic feel. The album's sound engineer was famous electronic music pioneer Wendy Carlos

João Gilberto Prado Pereira de Oliveira, known as João Gilberto (Portuguese: ; June 10, 1931), is a Brazilian singer, songwriter, and guitarist. He created the musical genre of bossa nova in the late 1950s. João Gilberto was born in Juazeiro, Bahia, Brazil. From early on, music became an essential part of his life. When he was 14, his grandfather bought him his first guitar. During high school, João teamed up with some of his classmates to form a small band.

Eventually, in 1955 he was rescued from this rut by Luiz Telles, leader of the vocal group Quitandinha Serenaders, who took him to Porto Alegre in southern Brazil. In this provincial town João Gilberto blossomed musically. Next he spent eight months with his sister in Diamantina, Minas Gerais, where he sequestered himself and played day and night in a little bathroom (because of the improved acoustic), forging a personal style for voice and guitar, that would come to be known as bossa nova.

One of the biggest-selling jazz albums of all time, not to mention bossa nova's finest moment, Getz/Gilberto trumped Jazz Samba by bringing two of bossa nova's greatest innovators - guitarist/singer João Gilberto and composer/pianist Antonio Carlos Jobim - to New York to record with Stan Getz. The results were magic. Ever since Jazz Samba, the jazz marketplace had been flooded with bossa nova albums, and the overexposure was beginning to make the music seem like a fad.

João Gilberto himself would not have conquered the US without the enthusiasm of the Philadelphia-born saxophonist Stan Getz, who between 1962-4 recorded five jazz albums that introduced the new thing (bossa nova) from Rio. The first of these LPs, Jazz Samba, was praised by Philip Larkin as purely enjoyable, while the legendary fourth, Getz/Gilberto, stayed at No 2 in the US charts for all of 1964. Gilberto answered tetchily: There are people who have no poetry and left. His astonishing debut album Chega de saudade (No more sorrow), released in 1959, rescued him from a nervous breakdown. To a Brazilian audience accustomed to Carmen Miranda and accordion-heavy bolero, the album was a brazen avant-garde masterwork and more rhythmically intense than anything by Elvis.

Gilberto was born João Gilberto do Prado Pereira de Oliveira on June 10, 1931, in the town of Juázeiro in the northeastern state of Bahia, Brazil. His father was a wealthy merchant who insisted that all of his seven children receive an education. Gilberto defied his father's wishes however, devoting himself to music after receiving a guitar from his godfather at the age of 14. The following year, Gilberto formed a boys' musical group, which performed at social functions and rehearsed under a tamarind tree in the center of town. In 1955, Luis Telles, the leader of the traditional singing group Quitandinha Serenaders, with whom Gilberto had performed for a time, convinced Gilberto to move to Porto Alegre. There, he put the musician up in an expensive hotel and introduced him around town. Soon, Gilberto began playing regular gigs at the Clube da Chave (Key Club) there.
