Astrud Gilberto. It's older than your 20 year deadline, but I think you will enjoy.

Do you use a service like Pandora or Have you tried starting with this artist/song and seeing what they suggest?

It reminds me a lot of Astrud Gilberto and a few slower/jazzier Seu Jorge songs, though. You also might want to check out Nouvelle Vague, though they're more chanson than jazz.

Madeleine Peyroux, whose name I may have misspelled.

Eighties tunes redone in a bossa nova style by a sultry female vocalist? Nouvelle Vague is exactly what you want.

Diana Panton, Lisa Ekdahl (specifically her Lisa Ekdahl Sings Salvadore Poe album, though she does have a kind of polarizing voice), some of Emilie Claire Barlow's stuff, and maybe some Blossom Dearie for a bit of a throwback.

And thanks for introducing me to Kat Edmonson! :)
