Volume One in this series of seriously intoxicating Latin and American Bossa-Samba-Jazz sounds! It all began in the '50s when composer Antonio Carlos Jobim, inspired by West Coast Jazz, helped to form a new music that blended together gentle Brazilian Samba rhythms and melodies with cool-toned improvising. These compilations contain the results of Jobim's influential musical experiment, as they feature a myriad of artists serving up a cocktail blend of rare original Brazilian and American Bossa Nova and Jazz from the 60's. Each volume comes complete with a different sexy vixen on each of the covers...and we do mean SEXY! Includes 16 tracks featuring classic performances by Les McCann, Mongo Santamaria, Cal Tjader, The Champs, The Hi-Lo's and many more. If you like this let me know - I'll post the rest.
