Desafinado. Yasuhiro Matsuda and K Note Jazz Project

"Desafinado", a Portuguese word (usually rendered into English as "Out of Tune", or as "Off Key"), is the title of a bossa nova song composed by Antonio Carlos Jobim with lyrics (in Portuguese) by Newton Mendonça. The English language lyrics were written by Jon Hendricks and Jessie Cavanaugh. Another English lyric, more closely based on the original Portuguese lyric (but not a translation) was written by Gene Lees, and appears on some recordings as well. The version by Stan Getz and Charlie Byrd (from the album Jazz Samba) was a major hit in 1962, reaching 15 and 4 on Billboard's pop and easy-listening charts, respectively; their definitive rendering also reached No 11 in the UK, whilst Ella Fitzgerald's version made No 38. by Wikipedia

ポルトガル語でDesafinadoは" 調子はずれの"という意味です。アントニオ カルロス ジョビン作曲、1962年にヒットしたボサノバの名曲です。ビルボードのイージーリスニングチャートで4位まであがりまし­た。
