The fruitful relationship between Brazilian music and American jazz took shape between the mid-50s and the '60s. This turned out to be one of the most prolific meetings in the history of popular music. Two music cultures that are still resonating today as a timeless combination of elements. Now if you feel like getting through the unique flavor of such musical marriage this compilation is the right place to start. This is a great selection of Brazilian flavored jazz tunes performed by top Brazilian artists of the likes of Sergio Mendes, Bola Sete, Baden Powell, and Tamba Trio, including classic standards such as Gershwin's "I Got Rhythm", Cole Porter's "Love For Sales", and Horace Silver's "Nica's Dream". Also features Dick Farney, Brazilian Jazz Quartet, Rubens Bassini E Os 11 Magnificos, Moacir Santos, Ed Lincoln, Milton Banana & The Oscar Castro Neves Quintet, João Donato, and Os Cobras.
