$44.00 Sold out

Pickup currently unavailable at Appleton Store

This is the first true bossa nova album by jazz artists, the one that began the wave. The name Stan Getz can easily be tied to bossa nova whenever the music is being discussed in jazz circles but would audiences have ever known of bossa nova if not for Charlie Byrd? The sessions for Jazz Samba were arranged only after Byrd played records he'd gotten in Brazil for Getz. The results: a groundbreaking #1 album and a document of jazz history.

"Jazz Samba...sold half a million copies in 18 months and became the only jazz album ever to hit No. 1 on the Billboard pop chart, and it remained on the charts for 70 weeks. The record netted Stan Getz a Grammy Award in 1963 for Best Solo Jazz Performance, bolstered Creed Taylor's reputation as an emerging star producer and gave Getz and Byrd career hooks to hang their hats on for years to come." - David R. Adler, Jazztimes

"...these are all truly classic Verve titles that you simply don't want to miss...most importantly, the sound of these reissues is nothing short of owe yourself at least a half dozen!" - Winner of a 2012 Positive Feedback Online Writers' Choice Award - Danny Kaey, Positive Feedback Online, November/December 2011
