Born to buy

When I was very young, my parents loved the sound of Brazilian music: bossa nova, Stan Getz, Astrud Gilberto, ‘The Girl from Ipanema’, ‘Corcovado’, ‘So Danco Samba’, and all the others. There was one long, dreary winter when they played bossa nova practically non-stop. So I suppose it’s little wonder I grew up to be completely in love with its sound (as I still am today). Another thing is, my mother was seven months pregnant with me that winter.
