opis: The 1953 Bud Shank/Laurindo Almeida recordings were first issued on two 10” World Pacific albums and then compiled on one single LP under the title of Brazilliance. This music was among the first (if not the very first) combinations of jazz and bossa nova. In fact, it was still too early to properly speak of bossa nova. In Brazil, to do something with “bossa” is to do it with particular charm and natural flair, as if it were an innate ability. The term finally became known and widely used to refer to a new musical style, a fusion of samba and jazz, when the now famous creators of the genre referred to their new style of work as “a bossa nova” or “the new thing”. Bossa nova was developed in Brazil in the mid 1950s, with its creation being credited to artists including Johnny Alf, Antonio Carlos Jobim and Joao Gilberto.
While the aforementioned 1953 Shank/Almeida recordings were the precursors of the bossa nova-jazz fusion, the two 1962 Stan Getz LPs, Jazz Samba and Big Band Bossa Bova (and the two which would follow them in 1963, Jazz Samba Encore and Getz-Gilberto) would start the bossa nova craze.
As a bonus, a rare find in Getz’s discography: “Theme from ‘Dr. Kildare’” is a song recorded during the same period and first issued on a single. “Theme from Dr. Kildare” was actually a song titled “Three Stars Will Shine Tonight”, which was used as the theme song for the TV series “Dr. Kildare”.
