Jazz Samba Encore! is a bossa nova album by Stan Getz and Luiz Bonfá, released on the Verve label. It is bossa nova in a slower groove. It contains a mix of Jobim standards as well as originals from Bonfá. Performers also include Antonio Carlos Jobim and vocalist Maria Toledo, Bonfá's wife. Some songs are subdued but substantial in tone, while "Um Abraco No Getz", features a blistering solo from Stan with Maria totally silent as she is on the superior track O Morro Nao Tem Vez. The painting on the cover is a piece by the influential New York based abstract expressionist Olga Albizu from Puerto Rico.
