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.
