CD Reviews

The child of a happy marriage.
Oto A. Maia | Pretoria South Africa | 03/30/2000
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Herbie Mann travelled to Rio in 1962 and came back with the album "Do the Bossa Nova", today a classic example of that happy marriage of jazz and Brazilian popular music. He teamed with Castro Neves, Baden Powell and the great Tom Jobim, the composer of Quiet Nights and The Girl from Ipanema to cover bossa nova standards and more percussive mainstream samba numbers. The result is irregular but always inspired and worth listening. The track Consolação, a dueto of flute and guitar, Mann and Powell, is hypnotic!"
Brazil and jazz = good stuff

"Mann gives us an incredibly smoothed-out old-school latin jazz workout much in the vein of his work at the time. This particular double-album CD is a steal not only at its price, but because the quality of the music on both records is so consistently good. Using his flute to guide the ambience and not simply to embellish it, the tracks are infectious bits of bachelor pad/martini napkin-wet coolness; so much so that even on tracks that burn-out a little ("Menina Feia" and "Voce E Eu" leap to mind) retain their essential Mann-ness. This double record is a great place to start with his fairly large catalogue."
