Easy Introduction To Jazz-Bossa Nova Box set (CD)
The Bossa Nova style was born in Brazil in the late 1950s. As many American jazz stars toured South America during those years, bossa slowly became known in the United States. However, in early 1962 Stan Getz recorded a couple of albums combining bossa with jazz that unexpectedly became top- sellers. As a result, a bossa nova craze developed and nearly every jazz star recorded his/her own bossa nova album, or at least included a couple of bossas in their LPs or concerts. This collection contains 18 complete albums from the bossa nova-jazz craze, including two 1953 precursors by tenor saxophonist Bud Shank and Brazilian guitarist Laurindo Almeida, as well as brilliant works in the genre by such stars as Stan Getz, Quincy Jones, Dizzy Gillespie, Dave Brubeck, Zoot Sims, and Coleman Hawkins, among others, and the landmark early recordings by JoGilberto and Antonio Carlos Jobim which introduced Bossa Nova to the world. Our set also presents 21 bonus tracks complementing the main LPs. Includes a 20-page booklet including rare photos, vintage memorabilia and detailed liner notes.
