Gilberto with Turrentine is an album by Brazilian samba and bossa nova singer Astrud Gilberto and American saxophonist Stanley Turrentine featuring performances recorded in 1971 released on the CTI label.

Incredible 70s work from the lovely Astrud Gilberto – a rare effort for the CTI label that has her teaming up with arranger Eumir Deodato and saxophonist Stanley Turrentine – all in a groove that’s totally different than most of her earlier work! Astrud’s breathy vocals are still wonderfully intact – but they’re given a more spacious approach in the arrangements – strings mixes with rolling basslines, soaring keyboards, and stone cold tenor from Stanley – in a groove that’s simply wonderful, and which takes off in a whole new direction than before! Other players include Airto, Sivuca, Hubert Laws, and Dom Um Romao – and tracks include classic versions of “Ponteio”, “Vera Cruz”, and “Zazueira” that are all some of the most grooving takes on the tunes ever – plus “Historia De Amor”, “Where There’s A Heartache”, “Brazilian Tapestry”, and “Wanting Things”.
