(2016/Warner Music Australia/Festival) 20 tracks (56:15) 1962-1974 with 8 page color booklet. - Klasse Latin Compilation mit 20 Hits und Raritäten aus den 1960er Jahren, als Bossa Nova und Samba erstmals in den USA Mainstream vordrangen. Zusammengestellt von den Acid-Jazz-Pionieren Chris Bangs und Gilles Peterson. Featuring Elvis Presley, Astrud Gilberto, Aretha Franklin, Marcos Valle, Dizzy Gillespie, Sergio Mendes, u. v.a. - The bossa nova has its roots in the songwriters and singers who emerged from Brazil´s late 50s and early 60s golden age. When the newly democratic country was revelling in its position as the wealthiest, and most advanced of the Southern American countries. Its football team had not only won the 1958 World Cup in Sweden, but done it with style unearthing the 18 year old talent Pele. In Oscar Niemeyer it had another world-beater, this time in the world of architecture - his buildings would come to define mid-Century modernism in his home country. - Musically the like of Luis Bonfa, Joao Gilberto and Tom Jobim were beginning to forge the new beat that would become known as bossa nova, and the rhythm especially captivated a group of American jazzmen who passed through the country, they travelled on tours sponsored by the State Department and designed to showcase US culture to the developing world. The likes of Dizzy Gillespie, Bud Shank, Herbie Mann, Stan Getz and Charlie Byrd all made the journey, and returned wanting to tell their home country about the fabulous new music. - The latter were inspired to rnake an album called ´Jazz Samba´ for Verve, and by the summer of 1962 it had climbed all the way to #1 on the Billboard charts, boosted by the success of Jobim and Newton Mendonca´s tune ´Desafinado´ which was lifted as a single. It began the great bossa nova craze. Of course jazz musicians got on board. It isn´t often that commercial music and jazz become bedfellows, and when they do everyone wants a slice. Stan Getz proved lightning could strike twice when he recorded ´The Girl From Ipanema´ with Gilberto. The English language parts were sung by Gilberto´s wife Astrid and made her a star as the single went to #5 in the pop charts. She continued to record for Verve making a series of sophisticated jet-set evoking albums, which included such gems as ´Take Me To Aruanda´. - ´Ipanema´ itself became a standard, capable of being treated in many ways. Not many got close to the gently swaying cool of Lou Rawls in his majestic jazz-soul phase at Capitol. His velvety vocal stylings were perfectly suited to creating a high-end Brazilian croon, and others were recording in the same vein. Jon Hendrick´s gave an early attempt via his version of ´Jive Samba´ from 1964 and the little known club singer Lonnie Sattin updated Ellington´s ´Caravan´ as the most delicious of bossa temptations. Nearly a decade later Jon Lucien, a native of the US Virgin Island, who was taking the New York jazz scene by storm, gave Lionel Bart´s ´Who Will Buy´ (from ´Oliver´) what was by then an unfashionable bossa update. - Those records had both jazz and Brazilian credibility in spades, but the same couldn´t be said about the scores, possibly hundreds of records that attempted to make the pop charts using the bossa nova beat. So Elvis Presley´s ´Bossa Nova Baby´ could have been seen as The King at the nadir of 1960s movie making slump, but actually it is a clever cash-in written by the ´Hound Dog´ and IJailhouse Rock´ writing team Leiber and Stoller, and Elvis rose to the occasion. L&S were also the team behind Tippie and The Clovers ´My Heart Said (Bossa Nova´ which was released on their own Tiger label. Similar in style Is Doris Troy´s self-written ´Bossa Nova Blues´. The singer was a big favourite of The Beatles and other British sixties groups, and later recorded for the Fab Four´s Apple label. Slightly later, but part of the same New York Atlantic Records scene is Aretha Franklin who wrote ´Don´t Let Me Lose This Dream´ for her label debut ´I Never Loved A Man The Way I Loved You´ and its rhythm is pure bossa. - The US love of Bossa Nova swept up numerous Brazilians and gave them a shot at international stardom (or at least a residency in a Vegas). Organist Walter Wanderley was perhaps the oddest of these. Juxtaposing cheesy roller skating rink organ, over a bossa beat, he was extraordinarily popular for a while with his mixture of covers of pop tunes and Brazilian standards. Marcos Valle was another, an exceptional
(1991/Delmark) 7 tracks, The tough town that this CD´s title refers to is Chicago, where Jim Cooper had played quite a bit in the 1970s and 1980s before Delmark recorded him as a leader in the early 1990s. Delmark had always been great about documenting Windy City jazzmen who were well respected locally but little known elsewhere, and one of the many examples was Cooper, a swinging, enjoyable vibist whose main influences were Bobby Hutcherson and Milt Jackson. One of Cooper´s greatest assets on this decent post-bop/hard bop release is multi-hornman Ira Sullivan, who sticks to the tenor sax this time and brings a lot of charisma to material ranging from Charlie Parker´s ´Cheryl´ to such Cooper originals as the sophisticated ´Waltz for Betty´ and the Hutcherson-ish title song. Other Chicago residents on board include pianist Bob Dogan, bassist Dan DeLorenzo and drummer Charlie Braugham. Although Tough Town didn´t make Cooper a big name internationally, it was nice to hear him documented on CD.(AllMusic)
