Big Band Bossa Nova

( 2 )

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Scott Yanow
A byproduct of the bossa nova fad that followed the success of "Desafinado" and preceded the famous recording Getz/Gilberto, this set finds Quincy Jones utilizing and exploiting bossa nova rhythms in his arrangements for a big band. The personnel includes flügelhornist Clark Terry, altoist Phil Woods, pianist Lalo Schifrin, guitarist Jim Hall, and on "Soul Bossa Nova" the remarkable Rahsaan Roland Kirk. However, since the selections are all quite brief, and some of the charts are a bit cheesy and inappropriate for the gentle rhythms, this disc although pleasant enough is of lesser interest.
