The Bossa Nova Modern Quartet - Bossa Nova Jazz Samba (1963)

I think Caetano's picks for our 2m hits celebration are guided by his personal preferences. Since the first day I met Caetano he always says this is the album I need to look for in terms of excellence on Bossa Jazz instrumental music from the 60's. That's why Caetano pleases us with the reposting of The Bossa Nova Modern Quartet, an obscure group assembled by Sinter in the early 60's. Obscure no more, now we have this album taken from the original master tapes and personnel listing, never made public before this post. Courtesy, Caetano Rodrigues.

This is The Bossa Nova Modern Quartet - Bossa Nova Jazz Samba (1963), for Sinter (Musidisc subsidiary), featuring Jorginho (sax, flute), Plinio (drums), Luiz Marinho (bass) and Claudio das Neves (vibraphone). I though Ed Lincoln would be one of the musicians as he delivers several compositions. Taken from the master tapes, the music is 100% clean, available on FLAC lossless files and traditional MP3s. This is the kind of release that you do not need to use Loronix Preview Center to make your decision. Tracks include:


(sax, flute)
Luiz Marinho
Claudio das Neves

Wow. What impeccable sound quality. Beautiful album. Thank you for the New Year's present (again!).

This is great, to have this album now in this quality. Now we know who is playing, just the name of the guitar player is missing. I think, this must be Waltel Branco who composed tracks 02 & 10.

Very nice sound, very nice playing (especially Jorginho, so fluid and under control). Thank you for this, Caetano.

I was wondering about the guitarist also. Perhaps Frank-oliver is correct.
