LP, Vinyl record album


4.80 2

Amazing bossa jazz from one of Brazil's best combos! The Bossa Tres were led by dynamic pianist Luis Carlos Vinhas – an incredibly strong talent who was as great an arranger as he was a piano player – and on this early session, he's at his most firey, really flowing out with tremendous creative energy on the keys! This album is one of the group's rarest – as it was recorded in New York for the Audio Fidelity label, and only ever issued briefly in the early 60s. It's a killer batch of lively bossa piano tunes – with crackling drums, tight rhythms, and some firecracker work on the keys by Vinhas. 12 tracks in all – and titles include "Bossa 3 Theme", "So Saudade", "Green Dolphin Street", "Ceu E Mar", "Zelao", and "Nao Faz Assim". Great stuff all the way through – and a real bossa treasure!  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Softly
Capitol, 1965. New Copy (reissue)
A lost bossa classic from Wanda De Sah – aka Wanda Sa, the wife of Edu Lobo, and a singer who worked with Sergio Mendes in his pre-Brasil 66 days!
