The landmark first album from Os Ipanemas – a runaway set of smoking bossa jazz – and a record that really helped set a whole new tone for the genre! The group here is a cooking quintet of Brazilian all-stars – including Astor Silva on trombone, Wilson Das Neves on percussion, Neco on guitar, and Rubens Bassini on drums and percussion – a great lineup that comes together perfectly – in a blend that has raw Brazilian percussion mixed with tighter jazz elements – a mode the bridges two sides of Brazil in the 60s, in a really great way! And although the group have come back to fame in recent years, this initial set may well be our favorite by them – filled with great cuts that include "Nana", "Clouds", "Zulus", "Congo", "Java", and a great cover of "Berimbau".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Brasilian Beat '67
Design/Gear Fab, 1967. New Copy
A very unusual bit of bossa nova – and a record that seems to criss-cross a few different A&M Records modes of the 60s! At one level, the group's got a Brasil 66 feel – since they use a female vocal chorus on some cuts, breezing along with the grooves in a style that's definitely ... CD
