Far more than Stan Getz, acoustic jazz guitarist Charlie Byrd was responsible for bringing the Brazilian sound to these shores. Byrd introduced the saxophonist to the music in early 1962, resulting in their initial collaboration, JAZZ SAMBA, the first bona fide American bossa nova record. West Coast alto and flute player Bud Shank had recorded with Brazilian guitarist Laurindo Almeida in 1953, but these landmark sessions predated bossa nova by at least a half-decade.
Byrd's own 1965 solo effort, BRAZILIAN BYRD, is the best instrumental overview of Jobim's work outside of the master composer's own American solo projects. Jobim's Claus Ogerman-arranged albums, highly pleasurable as they may be, veer heavily in the direction of light and easy listening, but Byrd's masterfully dry playing remains solidly based in jazz. The guitarist is ably assisted by arranger Tommy Newsome, whose superior scoring for strings, brass, and woodwinds paints a desert landscape of great beauty.
