Bud Shank / Clare Fischer / Joe Pass - Brasamba (1963)

We should thanks Caetano Rodrigues for this album, part of his last set of contributions to Loronix. Released in 1963, this is one of those albums recorded by American Jazz musicians in response of the arriving of Bossa Nova in the United States. Bossamba was on my hunting list since I saw it for the first time in Caetano Rodrigues book, now is time to hear it, altogether with my friends at Loronix.

This is Bud Shank, Clare Fischer and Joe Pass - Brasamba (1963), for Pacific Jazz. In spite of its importance, Brasamba worth by putting together these three legends. Bud Shank, a well-known artist by his great collaboration to the music from Brazil and Brazilian musicians, pretty recently, he recorded another album together with Joao Donato. Clare Fischer is a gifted pianist that was introduced for the first time with a fantastic Bossa Nova record by Caetano, the first international Bossa Nova album made available at Loronix. Joe Pass is a name that does not need any kind of introduction, one of the great Jazz guitar players. They are accompanied by bass, vibes and percussion, as detailed on personnel listing, just before tracks. Tracks include:


Bud Shank
(sax alto, flute)
Clare Fischer
Joe Pass
Larry Bunker
(vibes and drums)
Ralph Pena
Milt Holland, Chuck Flores
