One of the most creative guitar virtuosos of the 20th century, Luiz Bonfá is celebrated as one of the principal architects of the cool Brazilian sound of bossa nova—and as co-author, with Antônio Carlos Jobim, of the film score to “Black Orpheus.” But Bonfá was far more than the composer of “Manhã de Carnaval.” His technical mastery, intimacy, and dynamism suffuse every track of this first CD edition of his masterpiece, a long-unobtainable solo 1959 LP, along with a half-hour of previously unreleased material from the original studio session. 70 minutes. 31 tracks. 32-page booklet with extensive notes by Anthony Weller.

When Stan Getz and Luiz Bonfa surprised the Americans with their first samba recording they did not imagine that this was to be their biggest success together. With such titles such as “Desafinado” and “One Note Samba”, Brazilian pop music stormed the borders. So popular was the music that voices cried for more – and the VERVE producers satisfied the fans with Jazz Samba Encore. The music contained in this album delved somewhat deeper into the heart of Brazilian melodies. Bonfa and Jobim, the composers and famous guitarists, picked up their instruments and both they and their soloists, – Maria Toledo in particular proves herself a maestra of her country’s music -, proceeded to delight their fans with their seemingly effortless music-making. Although he was not Brazilian and only later became a samba expert, Stan Getz fits amazingly well into this ensemble. His full tenor voice even in the upper regions and his rippling legato are wholly characteristic of his art. A delightful sound and natural rhythm – above all, rhythm! – make this record a “must” for every party.
