Bud Shank - Brazil! Brazil! Brazil! (1966)

Hello, Good Evening and Good night! I'm back from Sao Paulo vinyl fair. I arrived four hours ago, but I was so tired that I slept by accident when reading a magazine. Then I decided to come here and say hello, thanks everybody who was there and just let you know that tomorrow night I will be covering the fair, telling everybody what happened.

Meanwhile, I decided to post something solid from the start to end to please Loronixers tomorrow or early today or late this night or... well, I'm not sure, depends on your time zone.

This is a sampler from known Bud Shank Brazilian LP`s for World Pacific. A strange factor is, that the string orchestra arrangements are overdubbed years later to the original recordings. Only track one with Chet Baker is a new recording.
