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 in a red cover – with deep groove! Cover has some gloss peeling and a split bottom seam.)

Bud Shank & Laurindo AlmeidaBrazilliance Vol 2 ... LP
World Pacific, 1958. Near Mint- ... $13.99
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. 10 tracks are included in this volume: "Simpatico", "Little Girl Blue", "Mood Antigua", "The Color Of Her Hair", "Carioca Hills", "Choro In A", "Nocturno", "Lonely", "I Didn't Know What Time It Was" and "Rio Rhapsody". LP, Vinyl record album
(Yellow vinyl stereo pressing. Cover has light wear, splitting on the top seam, with some marker & a bit of pencil on back.)

Laurindo AlmeidaLaurindo Almeida Quartet – Volume 2 (10 inch) ... LP
Pacific Jazz, 1954. Very Good+ ... $19.99
Original 10" LP featuring the second set of historic duets between Brazilian guitarist Almeida and the great LA alto player Bud Shank. This is the stuff that supposedly ended up back in Brazil and inspired the wave of musicians involved in the bossa nova momement. It's been repackaged a number of times, but it's great to have in this cool original package, with a weird polarized cover featuring a strange green design of intertwining leaves. LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has very light wear and a spot where an old sticker was removed.)

Stan Getz & Laurindo AlmeidaStan Getz With Laurindo Almeida ... LP
Verve, 1963. Very Good Gatefold ... $9.99
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

Henry ManciniBig Latin Band Of Henry Mancini/Latin Sound Of Henry Mancini ... CD
RCA/Vocalion (UK), 1965/1968. New Copy ... $11.99
2 great albums of Latiny tunes from Henry Mancini! The Big Latin Band Of Henry Mancini features a very hip lineup of west coast jazzmen – including Bud Shank and Tom Scott on reeds, Buddy Childers and Pete Candoli on trumpets, Ray Brown on acoustic bass, Max Bennett on fender bass, Larry Bunker on percussion, and Shelly Manne on drums. The rhythms have a great mix of Latin influences and Mancini magic, the kind of grooves you'd hear on his 60s soundtracks at the time, and the vibe is nice and relaxed. It's a bit more upbeat than bossa, but not as all-out as other RCA Latin sessions – thanks to Mancini's nice sense of warmth and space in the arrangements. Titles include some pretty darn cool takes on "Mission Impossible", "Fistful Of Dollars", "Magnificent Seven", "Touch Of Evil", and "Springtime For Hitler", from the film The Producers. Other titles include "Patricia", "Zacatecas", and "Las Cruces". The Latin Sound record is a gem from a few years earlier – with some great arrangements by Mancini! The album's less a straight Latin date than it is a new approach to the grooves Henry was laying down on his 60s soundtracks – a mix of bossa and cha cha-inspired themes that sparkle wonderfully with warm jazzy touches from a host of LA players who include Dick Nash on trombone, Harry Klee on flute, Ted Nash on alto and tenor, Jimmy Rowles on piano, Laurindo Almeida on guitar, and Gene Garf on organ – all working beautifully under Mancini's direction, with a sound that's both tight and relaxed at the same time! Lots of tracks have some nice groovy organ, which gives the arrangements a cool lively sound – and titles include "Preciosa", "Baia", "Carnavalito", "Quiet Nights Of Quiet Stars", "Tico Tico", and the nice "Senor Peter Gunn", a Latin remake of Mancini's big hit!

Bud Shank with Joao DonatoBud Shank & His Brazilian Friends ... LP
Pacific Jazz, Early 60s. Very Good+ ... $34.99
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.)

✨✧ LA 4Going Home ... CD
East Wind/Universal (Japan), 1977. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Wonderful work from this really unique west coast combo of the 70s – a quartet that draws plenty from key contributions of each of its members – but which also has a very special sound in the acoustic guitar of Laurindo Almeida! Almeida's a player who'd already been working in LA for two decades or more, but finds a whole new way to express himself here – in the company of past partner Bud Shank on reeds – who really opens up with some soulful solos on the record, which step boldly past some of the guitar passages that sometimes lead off the tracks. Ray Brown's bass is wonderful too – well-shaped, and given some great space to help work alongside Laurindo's guitar – and the album's completed by some very sensitive work on drums by Shelly Manne. Titles include "Softly As In A Morning Sunrise", "Django", "Romance De Amor", and "Recipe Of Love". CD

✨✧ LA 4Pavane Pour Une Infante Defunte ... CD
East Wind/Universal (Japan), 1977. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A beautiful group, and one with a very unique sound – a style that draws from the early 50s experiments in Brazilian jazz by Bud Shank and Laurindo Almeida – but which also moves the approach into even more sophisticated 70s territory! The quartet features Almeida on acoustic guitar and Bud Shank on some wonderful reeds – plus bass from Ray Brown and drums from Shelly Manne, but players who are open to all the new ideas of Bud and Laurindo, but who can also throw in a stronger groove when needed. The album's a wonderful experiment in really pushing the envelope of jazz expression further – but never in any sort of outside ways – and titles include a reading of Ravel's "Pavane Pour Une Infante Defunte", plus "C'Est What", "Corcovado", "Autumn Leaves", "Samba De Orfeu", and "Reveil".
