"...[T]hese are all truly classic Verve titles that you simply don't want to miss...most importantly, the sound of these reissues is nothing short of astounding. Particularly the early Billie and Ella mono records are incredible treasures of sonic beauty. I'd definitely ask Santa for the whole set, or, if you want to cherry pick, the most classic titles. Whatever you decide, you owe yourself at least a half dozen!" Winner of a 2012 Positive Feedback Online Writers' Choice Award - Danny Kaey, Positive Feedback Online, November/December 2011
The words bossa nova are often synonymous with the name Stan Getz. But North
Americans might not have ever known the bright sound of bossa nova had it not
been for Charlie Byrd. In 1961 Byrd returned from a tour of South America, where
bossa nova music was thriving. The style was the invention of singer Joao
Gilberto and songwriter Antonio Carlos Jobim -- an adaptation of infectious
Brazilian samba rhythms with the harmonic structures and "cool" surface of West
Coast jazz. Byrd brought back records for Getz to hear, they planned a session,
and the result was Jazz Samba -- the first album of true bossa nova music by
jazz artists and the one that broke the bossa nova wave in 1960s America.
