Laurindo AlmeidaLaurindo Almeida Quartet Featuring Bud Shank ... LP
Pacific Jazz, 1955. Very Good ... $19.99
A landmark set of recordings cut for the Pacific Jazz label in the early 50s, and supposedly a major influence on the early bossa artists in Brazil! The tracks were cut by a quartet led by LA altoist Bud Shank, and featuring Brazilian guitarist Laurindo Almeida, who was living in LA at the time. The mix of alto and guitar, in a jazzy vien, but with Latiny rhythms, is very similar to the early bossa jazz recordings – and even more so to the later American ones by Stan Getz and Charlie Byrd. Supposedly, original 10" LPs of the material made their way to Brazil, and later influenced Jobim and Gilberto. Although we can't confirm that rumor entirely, you'll sure hear a similarity, and even if you don't, the stuff's still pretty darn great. Titles include "Terra Seca", "Amor Flamenco", "Atabaque", "Nono", "Noctambulism", "Tocata", and "Carinoso". Full LP that reissues the original 10" sets. LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label Pacific Jazz pressing with deep groove, in the red cover, with some aging and small seam splits.)

Bud Shank & Laurindo AlmeidaBrazilliance Vol 3 ... LP
World Pacific, 1958. Very Good+ ... $14.99
5 years after they made their first set of groundbreaking Braziliany jazz tracks together, Bud Shank and Laurindo Almeida went back into the studio to record another great batch for Pacific Jazz. That second set of sessions is captured here in its entirety, and it features Shank and Almeida playing with the looser rhythm team of Gary Peacock and Chuck Flores on a number of short groovy tracks that clearly had a big influence on the bossa generation. This set features 10 tracks in all: "Frio y Color", "Sunset Baion", "Harlem Samba", "Blowing Wild", "Xana-Lyn", "North Of The Border", "'Round Midnight", "Toro Dance", "Gershwin Prelude" and "Serenade For Alto". LP, Vinyl record album
(Red vinyl stereo pressing.)
