Hello, good evening! I had great plans for this Saturday night, but a last minute issue (successfully solved), changed everything. In order to keep you entertained this Sunday, I decided to make one single post. However, when we make just one release, it is nice to make something to please everybody. I could not believe when I saw this record, featuring a quartet that I did not realize the existence. Additionally, the album title is very similar to the name of the parrot that writes these lines. Let’s see.

This is LA4 – Zaca (1980), for Concord Jazz, featuring Laurindo Almeida, Bud Shank, Ray Brown and Jeff Hamilton. LA4 started in 1974, recording eight albums until dismissing in 1982. This is their sixth and all others were also recorded for Concord Jazz. I’m making available the original first vinyl issue with a slight different cover from the later well-known CD issue. This is what I know about LA4, perhaps Nathanael from Laurindo Almeida in the Heart can bring to us additional information about them. Stay tuned at comment section. Tracks include:


Laurindo Almeida
Bud Shank
(sax, flute)

Jeff Hamilton
