Yesterday, I said we started a series of two important Brazilian instrumental music albums. Keeping the deal we made, I’m showing today the second and last one, recorded in 1963 by a group of top-notch musicians that made together this first and only album, by the way, very different from what was usually produced at that time with tracks of 5 minutes and more and long solo performance by members throughout the record. Let’s see another wonderful Caetano Rodrigues contribution.

This is Sexteto de Jazz Moderno – Bossa Nova (1963), for RCA Victor. There is an interest story written at this album liner notes saying that the first US artists to get along with Bossa Nova was Ella Fritzgerald when touring in Brazil, 1960 with Roy Eldridge and Paul Smith Quartet. When they return to US, Roy Eldridge recorded immediately an album called Bossa Nova that called the attention of others musicians, such as Charlie Byrd, Zoot Sims and others. According with Bossa Nova liner notes, this was how everything started in the US. Sexteto de Jazz Moderno features the sax of Jorgino and Aurino, the piano of Fats Elpidio, the guitar of Jose Meneses, among others. Tracks include:

(sax alto)
(sax tenor)
Fats Elpidio
Jose Meneses
