Teaming with guitarist Charlie Byrd, who had just returned from a U.S. State Department tour of Brazil, Getz recorded Jazz Samba in 1962 and it became a hit. The title track was an adaptation of Antonio Carlos Jobim's "One Note Samba". Getz won the Grammy for Best Jazz Performance of 1963 for "Desafinado", from the same album.

His "The Girl from Ipanema" won a Grammy Award. The piece became the most well-known latin jazz tracks. Getz/Gilberto won two Grammies.
