BEFORE BOSSA NOVA
COMPUTERJAZZMAN | Cliffside Park, New Jersey United States | 10/05/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"BEFORE THERE WAS JOBIM, GILBERTO, OR GETZ, THERE WAS THIS MUSIC, WHICH WOULD LATER BE COINED BOSSA NOVA MUSIC. RECORDED IN 1953, THIS RECORDING WAS AT LEAST TEN YEARS AHEAD OF ITS' TIME. GREAT ALBUM, IF YOU LIKE THIS YOU HAVE TO GET VOLUME TWO AS WELL."
Bud Shank-versatile genius dead at 82 april 2009

"A jazz legend was recently lost to us all very recently in Bud Shank.Shank but only got the Samba fusion going with Alemeida on this brilliant collection taken from the 10" era (can't find date at AMG but thin were talking '52-54?) but he could do it all from big band session to excellent work with the underrated pianist Claude Williamson,to work with West Coast luminaries like Shorty Rogers or Howard Rumsey.Studio work,TV,you name it he had it.His soundtracks to surf movies like the classic "Slippery When Wet" LP is great.Everything just about to the mid 60's on Pacific or Wrld Pacific is worth owning.Sure he could so the commercial compete with the Beatles stuff to but during his 50's prime and once the the discarded commercial stuff up to the end he has to be put right up there with Art Pepper and Phil Woods as one of the best.And his wick was re-lit after the late 60's and early 70's commercial nonsense was done.If you like Bossa with good guitar (I always liked Getz's "Jazz Samba Encore" with Bonfia as opposed to Byrd.And like Bonfia Almedia was the real article) this is a great place to start.But like Getz to box him into "Just Bossa" as both were so much more.If you can swing it get the Mosaic Shank box befoire it's gone.
Rest In Peace Bud

"Definately off the beaten path and adds depth and meaning to the later samba of the 1960's and Antonio Carlos Jobim. Mostly good guitar plus a sax that sound like Paul Desmond running through a number of cool charts. Lots of half-steps, subtlety, good rhythm. A really "authentic" and orginal album. Glad I bought it."
