Overview

Verve raids its considerable store of classic bossa nova for this edition of the ballad-centric Jazz 'Round Midnight series. With its lilting beat and seraphic melodies, the music is tailor-made for a night of languid swing. And with the likes of jazz/bossa nova purveyors Stan Getz and Cal Tjader on hand, the fare is never less than excellent. Kicking off with a fine "Corcovado" compliments of singing duo Jackie & Roy, the mix wends through four Getz cuts (two with Charlie Byrd, one with Luiz Bonfa, and one with João Gilberto from the duly famous Getz & Gilberto album) and one track each from Tjader, Dizzy Gillespie, and Kenny Burrell; and on the Brazilian end, Astrud Gilberto, Bonfa, and Antonio Carlos Jobim represent in predictably fine fashion. The backdrop of choice for all those white-tux-by-the-pool affairs.
