We should thanks Caetano Rodrigues for this album, part of his last set of contributions to Loronix. Released in 1963, this is one of those albums recorded by American Jazz musicians in response of the arriving of Bossa Nova in the United States. Bossamba was on my hunting list since I saw it for the first time in Caetano Rodrigues book, now is time to hear it, altogether with my friends at Loronix.

This is Bud Shank, Clare Fischer and Joe Pass – Brasamba (1963), for Pacific Jazz. In spite of its importance, Brasamba worth by putting together these three legends. Bud Shank, a well-known artist by his great collaboration to the music from Brazil and Brazilian musicians, pretty recently, he recorded another album together with Joao Donato. Clare Fischer is a gifted pianist that was introduced for the first time with a fantastic Bossa Nova record by Caetano, the first international Bossa Nova album made available at Loronix. Joe Pass is a name that does not need any kind of introduction, one of the great Jazz guitar players. They are accompanied by bass, vibes and percussion, as detailed on personnel listing, just before tracks. Tracks include:

Hello, Good Evening and Good night! I’m back from Sao Paulo vinyl fair. I arrived four hours ago, but I was so tired that I slept by accident when reading a magazine. Then I decided to come here and say hello, thanks everybody who was there and just let you know that tomorrow night I will be covering the fair, telling everybody what happened.

Here we go now on the international Bossa Nova post of the day, obviously, gently provided by Caetano Rodrigues, the Great. This one brings wonderful artists, Bud Shank (sax) with a great identification with Brazilian music and Bossa Nova and Clare Fischer (piano), that has a particular meaning to zecalouro, Clare Fischer and his record Clare Fischer Plays Antonio Carlos Jobim and Clare Fischer – So Danco Samba was one of the first Caetano Rodrigues contribution, the start of the “international Bossa Nova” releases at Loronix.

This is Bud Shank and Clare Fischer – Bossa Nova Jazz Samba (1962), for Pacific Jazz, a nice blend of West Cost Jazz, Bossa Nova and Samba rhythms. It is amazing that this album is out of print. Bossa Nova Jazz Samba was released before Stan Getz and Charlie Byrd made Bossa Nova a big hit in the US. Bossa Nova Jazz Samba features Bud Shank (sax), Clare Fischer (piano), Ralph Pena (bass) and Larry Bunker, Bob Neel, Milt Holland and Frank Guerrero (percussion). Tracks include:

01 – Samba Da Borboleta
02 – Illusao
03 – Pensativa
04 – Joao
05 – Misty
06 – Que Mais?
07 – Wistful Samba
08 – Samba Guapo

Clare Fischer Plays Antonio Carlos Jobim and Clare Fischer – So Danco Samba (1962)

Caetano Rodrigues and Charles Gavin book has an amazing section with records from non-Brazilian artists performing Bossa Nova. Particularly, Charlie Byrd LPs are fantastic with those covers with parrots and macaws with some Brazilian spots on background.

Among the several gems available there, Caetano selected a special one, Clare Fischer – Clare Fischer Plays Antonio Carlos Jobim and Clare Fischer, So Danco Samba (1962), for World Pacific with Clare Fischer (piano, organ), Dennis Budimir (guitar), Bob West (bass) and Colin Bailey (drums). For a flawless description of Clare Fischer’s So Danco Samba, I’m gathering Caetano own words, as follow:

“This America pianist really tried to decipher the refined language of Bossa Nova. He was not one of the pioneers of the new style as great names of the international jazz scene had already tackled it. However, Fischer’s merit lay in his choice of repertoire, almost entirely based on the songs by Tom Jobim, bringing elements of jazz into the traditional Brazilian flavor, despite the obvious limitations in his swing and playing technique. The truth is that Bossa Nova revitalized jazz, bringing back a cool vibe again”.
