When Charlie Byrd toured South America in 1961, Bossa Nova—a melding of Brazilian samba rhythms with the harmonic structures and cool sound of West Coast jazz—was booming. He brought back records for Stan Getz to hear and they planned a session. The result was Jazz Samba—the first album of Bossa Nova music by jazz artists and the one that created the Bossa Nova wave.
This ground-breaking record produced by Creed Taylor came about when Charlie Byrd introduced Stan Getz to the Brazilian rhythm style, having brought the first bossa nova records over to America from Brazil. Recorded in a church in Washington, during February 1962. The subtle improvisation of Getz, is perfectly matched by Byrd's finger style on classical guitar along with the backing of experienced personnel.
