✨✧ Stan GetzBig Band Bossa Nova ... LP
Verve, 1962. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An overlooked gem from the Verve bossa years – a session that features the sweet tenor sax work of Stan Getz, alongside some swinging bossa arrangements from the great Gary McFarland! Given the strength of Gary's own work for Verve at the time, it's no surprise that he's a perfect accompanist for Getz on the session – working with just the right amount of space to let Stan stand out from the pack, and really creating a great blend of Brazilian rhythms and some of the modder 60s styles at Verve. Gary contributed a number of originals to the session too – and titles include "Bim Bom", "Manlancolico", "Balanco No Samba", "Noite Triste", "Chega De Saudade", and "Manha De Carnival". LP, Vinyl record album
(60s pressing – in nice shape!)

✨✧ Sambalanco TrioHomenagem A Clifford Brown (aka Sambalanco Trio) ... LP
Audio Fidelity/Seven Seas (Japan), 1964. Used ... Out Of Stock
An unusual Japanese issue of the first LP by the Sambalanco Trio, one of the key early bossa groups, and the one whose material is the hardest to find. The set's got grooves played by a crack Brazilian group with a sound that's beautifully light on the drums, with a nice dancing feel that goes along great with the soulful piano solos. Cesar Camargo Mariano is on piano, and a very young Airto's on drums. Prime bossa, of the mode that keeps you coming back to the genre long after you've heard all the throwaway pop stuff. Includes the classic "Samblues", plus "Homenagem a Clifford Brown", "Sambinha", "Balanco Zona Sul", and the great "Jacqueline K" – dedicated to guess who? LP, Vinyl record album
(70s pressing, with insert.)
