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