The words "bossa nova" are often synonymous with the name Stan Getz. However North Americans might not have ever known the bright sound of this music if it had not been for Charlie Byrd. In 1961 Byrd returned from a tour of South America where bossa nova music was thriving. The style was the invention of singer Joao Gilberto and songwriter Antonio Carlos Jobim. An adaptation of infectious Brazilian samba rhythms with the harmonic structures and cool surface of West Coast jazz. Byrd brought back records for Getz to hear and they planned a recording session that resulted with this album "Jazz Samba". It was the first album of true bossa nova music by jazz artists and the first record that broke the bossa nova wave in 1960s America.
