Can you figure out what U.S. song this song sounds like?

This is a Bebel Gilberto track that brings to mind a U.S. song that I can't figure out. I hear the similarity in the horn/brass part only. It is slowed down but sounds like a song I know. Can you figure it out?

This is a long shot, but... "Walk on the Wild Side"?

It vaguely reminds me of The girl from Ipanema, but that's probably just me.

Bebel Gilberto's aunt sung on The Girl From Ipanema with a style and tone that was obviously and influence on Bebel, so you may be thinking of that.

totally The Stones. Thanks, Majorita.

FYI, Astrud Gilberto was Joao Gilberto's first wife (prior to Bebel's mother), not Bebel's aunt.
