Synopsis

Amazon.com
Guitarist Charlie Byrd was invited to travel and play in Brazil during a cultural good will tour sponsored by the Kennedy administration in 1961. He was completely enamoured of the music, and when he returned, he headed straight for the recording studio to make the now classic Jazz Samba. Collaborating with Stan Getz on tenor sax, and backed by a band that included Gene Byrd (bass, guitar), Keter Betts (bass), Buddy Deppenschmidt and Bill Reichenbach (drums), they forged a new and brilliant sound. American record companies were to churn out hundreds of watered bossa-pop albums that have since given the style its lounge-addled image, but this album stands as a tribute to the vitality and adaptability of jazz. --Louis Gibson

"I have had the extreme pleasure of seeing Charlie Byrd perform many times in Annapolis,MD where he resides. Each time I see him, he seems to play better and better. Jazz & Samba is a beautiful blend of styles that leaves one wanting the music to never end. He is truly a master above all."
