An album that not only broke the bossa big in the US – but a set that also really helped transform the sound of the organ in jazz! Not only is the record a key meeting of bossa rhythms and jazz organ – transplanted hugely to the US after a big initial Wanderley run in 60s Brazil – but the set also features some of the cleanest organ lines to ever hit these shores – a big difference from the heavier flutter that some of the US organists were using a few years before, and a sharp shift towards cleaner keyboard sounds for the rest of the decade. Instrumentation's nice and spare – mostly bass and percussion, plus a bi tof flute and guitar – and titles include the massive hit "Summer Samba", plus "Rain", "Beach Samba", "Song Of The Jet", "Cried, Cried", and "Girl From Ipanema".

Philips (Brazil), 1977. Near Mint- Gatefold
A wonderful album of mellow grooves – all featuring the lovely vocals of the great Gal Costa! Gal's moving into a style here that's jazzy and soulful – with backing that has a lot of warm fusiony elements, but which still puts her rich vocals right out front. In a way, the album's ...
