Bud Shank - Bossa Nova Jazz Samba

For the first post of the new year, I offer this, one of those jazz lps when everyone was so fascinated with the South American thing.
I know this sort of thing reaches a limited audience. Sorta like reggae - ya really have to be in the mood for it. And there are so many bad versions out there that it is near impossible to sift through the chaff. Fortunately I do it for you.
With the weather dipping into the teens this week, I thought a little something that reminds me of sunshine was in order.

Bud Shank and Clare Fischer
Bossa Nova Jazz Samba

1. Samba da Borboleta
2. Illusao
3. Pensativa
4. Joao
5. Misty
6. Que Mais?
7. Wistful Samba
8. Samba Guapo

Bud Shank - alto sax
Clare Fischer - piano
Ralph Pena - bass

percussionists -
Larry Bunker, Bob Neel
Milt Holland, Frank Guerrero



Just for the record - you are not getting the fancy stereo version but rather the one in glorious mono.
