Limited Edition 180g Yellow Vinyl LP!

While the 1953 Bud Shank/Laurindo Almeida recordings were the precursors of the bossa nova-jazz fusion, this 1962 Stan Getz LP would start the bossa nova craze. Producers were quick to exploit that craze in the first half of the '60s. Most of the famous jazzmen recorded an album, or at least a couple of tunes in the genre, with uneven results. The genre itself, however, and its fusion with jazz, didn't die out quickly. Instead, many modern contemporary jazzmen include bossa nova songs in their repertoire, and dozens of them have become authentic "jazz" standards, as vehicles for improvisations. This is certainly not due to the "novelty" of the rhythm, which certainly passed, but to the high quality of many of the genre's compositions. The album compiled here, now considered a true classic, continues to bring pleasure to a variety of listeners.

"Partly because of its Brazilian collaborators and partly because of 'The Girl From Ipanema', Getz/Gilberto is nearly always acknowledged as the Stan Getz bossa nova LP. But Jazz Samba is just as crucial and groundbreaking; after all, it came first, and in fact was the first full-fledged bossa nova album ever recorded by American jazz musicians. And it was just as commercially successful, topping the LP charts and producing its own pop chart hit single in 'Desafinado'. A revelatory classic. Absolutely essential for any jazz collection." - Steve Huey, AllMusic

"These are beautifully turned little gems played by a pair of brilliant jazz musicians who seem very much in rapport." - John S. Wilson, Down Beat (Original Review)
