4.0 out of 5 stars Great reissue ! Essential for the Brubeck collector and jazz fan
This album is a reissue of a recording made by the Classic Brubeck Quartet during the bossa nova craze in the US. After reading the album notes, written by Dave Brubeck himself, you perceive there was commercial pressure from their label to produce something under this Bossa Nova euphoria. Even their producer Teo Macero provided a composition for the purpose. However,...

3.0 out of 5 stars Classic Brubeck
Standard tracks here but what makes it a collector's item are the bonus tracks and variations on old familiars. Will Brubeck's reputation endure following his recent death? I'm not as convinced as I was but I am still a great fan.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great reissue ! Essential for the Brubeck collector and jazz fan, 22 Mar 2013

This review is from: Bossa Nova U.S.A. + 7 bonus tracks (Audio CD)
This album is a reissue of a recording made by the Classic Brubeck Quartet during the bossa nova craze in the US. After reading the album notes, written by Dave Brubeck himself, you perceive there was commercial pressure from their label to produce something under this Bossa Nova euphoria. Even their producer Teo Macero provided a composition for the purpose. However, appart from some tracks entitled with Brazilian references, this album is not simply a commercial project, but a properly jazz album with only some bossa signs. The albums is terrific by many reasons. First, you have the seminal quartet with Brubeck, Desmond, Wright and Morello. Second, must tracks were not available on CD before. Third, the sound is great. Amazon is getting used to the terrible habit of not listing tracks of the album. You may get the tracks following this link: [...] As you may see if you are a Brubeck's collector, with the exception of the title track, they are unpublished in CD format. The title track and Vento Fresco are spring breeze, with a superb Desmond in both of them. The album does not have the singularities and risks taken in Time Out or Time Further Out and may not be the best album in the Brubeck catalogue, but that makes it accesible and keeps the high quality standard Brubeck and his classic quartet always exposed. It is a very good album and not just for completists. I must highlight it definitely lacks a Brazilian taste, so if you want real bossa and jazz, ypu may go to Stan Getz and Joao Gilberto and Astrud Gilberto, or even Dizzy Gillespie. This album is essentially an American jazz album, with some references to the Brazilian craze of bossa nova just to raise sales.

As with any DB album, this is wonderful. Dave, Paul Joe and Gene all on top form and the latin feel gives it a difference.
