Charlie Byrd Artist Snapshot:

Charlie Byrd was a distinctive guitarist who brought a refined, classical approach to jazz guitar. His appearance on the Stan Getz album JAZZ SAMBA in the early 1960s helped usher in the bossa nova craze of that era, and his later recordings, particularly with the Great Guitars trio, demonstrate his highly developed technique and musical sense.

Product Notes

Byrd devoted this album to the compositions of Antonio Carlos Jobim in 1965, at the crest of the bossa nova wave. Byrd had been among the first American musicians, along with Jim Hall and Kenny Dorham, to encounter the Brazilian beat, and there''s a sure grasp of the idiom, particularly well suited to his classical guitar. Along with Jobim''s best-known compositions like "Girl from Ipanema" and "Corcovado," Byrd plays rarer, contemporaneous treasures like the beautiful "O Amor Em Paz" and "As Praias Desertas," unfolding their melodies with loving care and subtle embellishment. The string and big band settings are tasteful and unobtrusive, a pleasant backdrop for the essential dialogue between Byrd''s guitar and Jobim''s songs. --Stuart Broomer
