Nicola Conte Presents Viagem: A Collection of 60's Brazilian Bossa Nova and Jazz Samba
Far Out Recordings (www. faroutrecordings.com)

In Brazilian music's global popularization, jazz's 1960s Latin American turn recalls names like Stan Getz, Charlie Byrd, Joo Gilberto, Antonio Carlos Jobim, and Sergio Mendes. But most North Americans know little of bossa nova's seminal domestic jazz borrowings, producing a distinctive Brazilian acoustic imprint that retains a thoroughly contemporary feel some four decades later. Compiled by classically trained Italian DJ-producer Nicola Conte-of the acid-jazz head Fez collective based in the Adriatic port of Bari-Viagem assembles superb vintage sounds from the likes of Wanda S (an airy essay of Tom Jobim's "Vivo Sonhando"), Bossa Jazz Trio (Jorge Ben's "Vamos Embora Uau"), Hector Costita (reimagining Horace Silver's "Tokio"), Zimbo Trio (a bluesy, hard-bopping "Zimbo Samba"), Sansa Trio (a hot "Samba em Blue"), Trio Maraya (ethereal vocal harmonies on "Canto de Ossanha," by Baden-Powell and Vinicius de Moraes), Djalma Dias (Baden-Powell's "Cidade Vazia"), and Tenorio Jr. (his "Nebulosa" and "Samadhi"). - Michael Stone
