Ike Quebec Bossa Nova Soul Samba 180g 45rpm 2LP
Incredible Jazz Records + the original analog master tapes + cut at 45 RPM + mastered by Kevin Gray and Steve Hoffman at AcousTech + pressed on two 180-gram virgin vinyl LPs by RTI = THE ULTIMATE LP REISSUE!
The same formula that made the Fantasy 45 Series perhaps the most successful
audiophile reissue collection ever is now being reapplied to Blue Note reissues!
Taking notice on what Stan Getz was doing over at Verve in 1962, Blue Note
artist and executive Quebec brings it down a notch from his heavy tenor
reputation, and tries his hand at the "samba/bassa nova" rage. Exercising his
command of the tenor weaving expansive, romantic ballads, he is joined by Kenny
Burrell on guitar, Wendell Marshall on bass, Willi Bobo on drums and Garvin
This program of sultry, minor key music with a Brazilian tinge seems to have
inspired Ike Quebec, who was suffering from advanced cancer that would claim his
life three months later. But here his big-toned, impassioned tenor is in tact.
Quebec’s take on the bossa nova craze that exploded that year (1962) is more
muscular than Stan Getz’s and doesn’t rely on the familiar Jobim and Gilberto
songs of the day.
