Format: Audio CD
Jazz Samba is the first, but now possibly least famous, of the works by the famous samba populist and saxophonist, Stan Getz. Here he collaborates with the guitarist Charlie Byrd to produce, in my opinion, his finest Samba album.
Unlike the later Getz/Gilberto, Getz/Byrd has no vocal content and relies on swinging samba melodies and dexterous interplay between these masters of jazz sax and guitar. In tempo, it ranges from the boisterous E Luxo So, through the never-bettered Desafinado to the melancholic and beautiful Samba Triste.
Getz's samba does not engage the listener like other jazz forms. Its Brazilian rhythms fade naturally into the background, making it ideal for sophisticated party music. Given the right conditions however (a sultry summer evening, a cool glass of Cachaca in a quiet bar, or a bout of introspection on tumultuous passions of life) it leaps out and grabs you and won't let go.
Bolstered by his success in the pop charts, Getz went on to make a number of samba LPs, including the now famous Getz/Giberto in 1964, which featured Joao Gilberto on guitar, Antonio Jobim on piano and the raw vocal talent of Astrud Gilberto (famous now for The Girl From Ipanema). This work was possibly more pop than jazz and, while still excellent, it does not grab me quite like the original.
Whether the Getz/Byrd is jazz or not is also open to question, but by god it sure is good!

This is the LP that launched a thousand samba's, No1 in the pop charts, a feat that I belive has not been bettered by a Jazz LP since, this was the sound of the Brazilian New Wave and opened the worlds ears to the Jobim / Gilberto sound, is there anything quite as bright and breezy as the intro to Desafinado Getz full buttery tone and Byrd's softly singing strings just scream summer.
Buy it and feel the heat

Almost 50 Years old.This recording spawned ten years of jazz bossa nova.However this was the first and 'Desafinado'spent many weeks in the hit parade of the time.I lost my copy of this and have recently repaced it.After a break I was astounded how fresh it still seems,and Getz's virtuosity is magnificent.I rank this in my all time top ten.Just buy and enjoy.

This CD creates a certain mood, that develops the more often it is played.

I am basking in it rather than critically picking out the playing, but it is a lovely recording.

I discovered bossa nova from the Astrud Gilberto on Verve Jazz Masters, and this CD has not disappointed.

Gringo goes to Brazil and learns something about music. As jazz and samba share musical roots, the combination works well. A good introduction to Brazilian music ans Latin Jazz to people who are used to European and American popular music.
