The OG bossa nova jazz record gets that Verve Acoustic Sounds treatment. Mad how revolutionary this record was at the time, bringing together the swing of jazz with Latin rhythms to create a sound that has been replicated and rarely bettered by anyone other than Stan G.
When Charlie Byrd toured South America in 1961, Bossa Nova—a melding of Brazilian samba rhythms with the harmonic structures and cool sound of West Coast jazz—was booming. He brought back records for Stan Getz to hear and they planned a session. The result was Jazz Samba—the first album of Bossa Nova music by jazz artists and the one that created the Bossa Nova wave.
Verve’s Acoustic Sounds Series features transfers from analog tapes and remastered 180-gram vinyl in deluxe gatefold packaging.
