Reissue with the latest 24bit remastering. Features original cover artwork. Comes with a descripton in Japanese. One of the greatest albums of Brazilian jazz that Bud Shank ever recorded — done with a style that's a lot more like some of the best bossa albums from Rio at the time! Bud's recorded in other bossa settings before — but there's something about this record that really gets the whole thing right — as Shank's alto and flute come into play with a killer combo that includes Clare Fischer on piano, Larry Bunker on vibes and drums, Joe Pass on guitar, and Milt Holland and Chuck Flores on percussion.

Jazz / Bossa Nova / Cool / Latin Jazz / Hard Bop

Reissue with the latest 24bit remastering. Features original cover artwork. Comes with a descripton in Japanese. A sublime little set all the way through – an early 60s date from the west coast scene – and one that was almost as important to that side of the country as the Verve bossa records were to New York! Bud Shank's in the lead on alto sax – no flute at all this time around – blowing sharp and soulfully, in a way that's even more deft than most of his other albums! But the equal star here is the young Clare Fischer – who plays piano in the group, and also contributed a host of original tunes to the set – fresh numbers that are way different than the usual "bossa-ized" standards, or American remakes of Brazilian classics. Ralph Pena is a key member of the group on bass – and Larry Bunker plays some vibes as well. Titles include "Joao", "Pensativa", "Samba Guapo", "Samba Da Borboleta", and "Que Mais?".

Jazz / Bossa Nova / Latin Jazz

Reissue with the latest 24bit remastering. Features original cover artwork. Comes with a descripton in Japanese. That's Brasil 65, not Brasil 66 – a distinction that marks a key early stage for the great Sergio Mendes – heard here on one of his first albums to mix together bossa jazz and vocals! The approach here is a bit more like vintage bossa dates from Brazil – or a bit like some of the Verve bossa records too – as Sergio's core trio is at the heart of every tune, playing with a great jazzy approach – then augmented in different ways by alto and flute from Bud Shank, guitar from Rosinha De Valenca, and vocals from the lovely Wanda De Sah! Production is perfect – really in a classic Elenco Records mode – and titles include "Let Me", "Consolacao", "Tristeza Em Mim", "Muito A Vontade", "Reza", "Berimbau", and "Aquarius".

Reissue with the latest 24bit remastering. Features original cover artwork. Comes with a descripton in Japanese. This LP features the Stan Kenton Orchestra (during the period when it had a mellophonium section) performing some of its familiar standards and a few newer songs with a light Brazilian rhythm provided by percussionists Frank Guerrero and Milt Holland (Larry Bunker fills in for Holland on three songs). Although one might consider this project to be an example of Kenton jumping on the bandwagon (since the bossa nova fad was at its peak at the time), the music is quite enjoyable.

Reissue with the latest 24bit remastering. Features original cover artwork. Comes with a descripton in Japanese. A few short years ago the rich, subtle rhythms of Brazil's popular music swept north to dazzle the American musical scene with a tantalizing new sound. Today that sound has become a permanent part of our musical ways.
It is easy to see why, for Brazilian composers have a way of combining melody and rhythm in a meld that gives a feeling of romance to every note, an amorous message to every chord. And this is the spirit that Guitars Unlimited have captured in their first recording … an album of contemporary moods styled for listening today! No violins, no brass, no reeds, only soft guitars and gentle rhythm … and a program of romantic statements as welcome as spring's first sunlight.

Vocal Jazz, Bossa Nova, World | MP3 CBR 320 kbps | 57:05 min | 111 MB
Label: Enja Records | Tracks: 10 | Rls.date: 2017

On their sixth studio album called “Little Fish”, the German jazz quartet from Wiesbaden once again elaborately breaks the boundaries of rigid genres. Besides the eponymous sound of bossa nova, elements of samba, fado and other latin jazz sounds as well as cool and classic jazz bits flow into their thrilling compositions, in which all stylistic components merge and become fantastically blurred. Liza da Costa, the vibrant and bubbly Portuguese-Indian singer, shines like a lightning ball of energy; she is accompanied by exceedingly able improvisational talents Tilmann Höhn (guitar), Wolfgang Stamm (drums, percussion) and Alexander Sonntag (upright bass), who harmonize to the point of perfection.

Digitally re-mastered reissue of Sergio's debut album with his trio. Initially, Sergio moved from Brazil to New York to work as pianist with Antonio Carlos Jobim and Art Farmer (amongst others). He recorded this album plus a second album entitled Girl from Ipanema before forming the band that would eventually become Brasil '66. Bossa Nova York is closer to authentic Brazilian music than his later, more commercial recordings and these early sides are adored by Jazz purists. Originally recorded in New York and released in 1964.
