Bud ShankBossa Nova Years ... CD
Ubatuqui (Spain), Early 60s. Used 2CD ... $19.99
Seminal work from the man credited with the invention of bossa nova! Way back in the early 50s, Bud Shank cut some albums for Pacific Jazz in LA with guitarist Laurindo Almeida. These records mixed together Shank's flute and sax with lively guitar stylings by Almeida – and in many accounts, the recordings are quoted as being a seminal influence on the bossa scene in late 50s Brazil. No surprise, then, that when bossa broke in the US, Pacific Jazz took Shank back in the studio to cut more side in the same style – which is what you'll get on this excellent 2CD set! The work here ranges from 1962 to 1965 – and it features Shank playing in a number of groups: one with Clare Fisher piano, Larry Bunker vibes, and Milt Holland percussion; one with Fisher on piano and organ, Bunker on vibes, and Joe Pass on guitar; one with Joao Donato on piano and Rosinha De Valenca on guitar; and one with De Valenca on guitar and Sergio Mendes on piano. The 2CD set features 28 tracks in all – all pure stripped-down bossa jazz at its finest. Shank's a hell of a reed player – and the format gives him one of the best platforms to blow of his career. Titles include "Sambou Sambou", "Elizete", "Um Abraco No Bonfa", "Gostoso", "Joao", "Serenidade", "Silk Stop", "Sausalito", "Illusao", "Caminho De Casa", "Otem A Note", "Wistful Samba", "O Barquinho", and "Samba Guapo".

✨✧ Stan Getz & Laurindo AlmeidaStan Getz With Laurindo Almeida ... LP
Verve, 1963. Very Good+ Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
One of the best of the Stan Getz bossa nova sessions – and a record that features the great Laurindo Almeida on guitar – playing with more virtuosity than either Charlie Byrd or Joao Gilberto did on their collaborations with Getz! The record's got a driving rhythm section, with lots of long tracks, and nice laid-back solos by both Getz and Almeida – who's getting in some of his few jazz licks of the 60s here, working in a groove similar to that of his earlier sides with Bud Shank, but which sounds almost even better in the languid company of Getz. Cuts include "Outra Vez", "Winter Moon", "Maracatu-Too", and "Samba Da Sahra". Very nice! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Bud Shank with Joao DonatoBud Shank & His Brazilian Friends ... LP
Pacific Jazz, Early 60s. Used ... Out Of Stock
Bud Shank's icy alto has been credited as one of the prime influences on the bossa movement in Brazil (partly because of his early 50's recordings with guitarist Laurindo Almeida), and this beautiful set brings him into play with a trio of Brazilian musicians that includes Joao Donato on piano. Donato's light touch is a perfect complement for Shank's alto, and the two of them hit lots of sweet, warm bossa tones on tracks like "Caminho De Casa", "Sambou...Sambou", "Bonfa", "Sausalito", and "Samba Do Aviao". A great album, and don't get it confused with his other releases with "Brazil" in the title – because this is probably the best one, and it's darn tough to find! LP, Vinyl record album
(Original blue label pressing – in nice shape! Cover has one small vintage price sticker, but is nice overall.)
