Joao Donato

Muito A Vontade - 2024 Reissue

    An iconic figure of the Bossa Nova, Brazilian pianist, composer, and arranger Joao Donato (1934-2023) created and introduced a new rhythm pattern to the genre. He was profoundly influential, having inspired generations of musicians in Brazil and beyond; guitarist Joao Gilberto, for instance, confessed to having taken the new rhythm pattern from Donato's piano playing.

    Presented here in its entirety is Donato's album Muito a Vontade, recorded in a quartet format in 1962 and featuring the great Milton Banana on drums, best known for his playing with Joao Gilberto and Stan Getz.

    Joao Gilberto

    Desafinado - 2024 Reissue

      Born in Bahia, Brazil, singer/ song writer Joao Gilberto (1931-2019) was a true legend of bossa nova. While Antonio Carlos Jobim set the standard for the creation of bossa nova in the mid-'50s, with songs like "The Girl From Ipanema" and "Desafinado", it was Gilberto who brilliantly reimagined and, arguably, defined the genre. This edition includes the complete contents of the album Brazil's Brilliant Joao Gilberto, which received a five- star rating from AllMusic, plus several of his greatest hits from his early years. "This vitally important record introduced Joao Gilberto, Antonio Carlos Jobim and thus, bossa nova to the United States in 1961, a year before Stan Getz scored a hit with 'Desafinado'."- AllMusic (Richard S. Ginell)

      Vinicius De Moraes


        Brazilian poet, lyricist, essayist and playwright, Vinicius de Moraes (1913-1980) became a seminal figure in modern Brazilian music and literature. Along with his longtime collaborator, composer, arranger, singer, and pianist/ guitarist Antonio Carlos Jobim (1927-1994), known in Brazil as Tom Jobim, he composed hundreds of songs which have become true classics and have transcended the bossa nova, as they continue to be played and recorded by countless singers and instrumentalists within Brazil and throughout the world. This LP edition compiles some of Vinicius' earliest recordings.

        Stan Getz & Charlie Byrd

        Jazz Samba - 2024 Reissue

          While the 1953 Bud Shank/Laurindo Almeida recordings were the precursors of the bossa nova-jazz fusion, the 1962 Stan Getz/Charlie Byrd LP "Jazz Samba" , produced by Creed Taylor, started an international craze for bossa nova and is, universally, considered a true classic

          Producers were quick to exploit the Bossa Nova craze in the first half of the '60s and many famous jazzmen at that time recorded albums that were, wholly or partially, made up of songs from the genre. Though the craze may have waned a little since those early years, bossa nova remains a vehicle of inspiration for many of today's musicians.
