Jazz Nova
This is Jazza Nova, recorded by Paulo Alencar and His Brazilian All Stars in Rio de Janeiro in 1962, and originally released in Brazil by Odeon as “Bossa Nova Jazz.” The release speaks by itself: a jazzy LP fromthe early 60’s with a cast of all-stars musicians on set, and arrangements of Maestro Cipó. The instrumentation includes tenor sax, piano, guitar, bass, percussion, accordion, clarinet and trumpet in several different configurations. Unfortunately, the musicians involved were not credited, not even the gorgeous singer in Ziriguidum. Any bossa nova fan will really enjoy the music, and the masterful blowing. Billboard music editor Bob Rolontz said that: “Like their American counterparts, Brazilian jazzmen are deeply rooted in the jazz tradition and they play with soul and feeling. That feeling is evident on this recording of modern Bossa, which will be probably be called, from now on, Jazza Nova.”

Cool Samba
João Theodoro Meirelles (1940-2008), tenor saxophonist, flute player and leader of the Bossa Kings, was born in Rio de Janeiro. Having originally established himself in several of Brazil's big-name bands, he settled easily into club work in São Paulo and at the Bottle Club in Rio, where he played with top visiting American jazzmen such as Jim Hall, Nick Travis, Bud Shank, and Sam Most, as well as such Brazilians as Luiz Eça, Paulo Moura, Sergio Mendes and Moacir Santos. He was one of the musicians who took Brazilian instrumental music one step forward, beyond the songs with lyrics that singers and fans liked to sing. That is why it is said that João Meirelles was the creator of samba-jazz, a genre linked closely to the emergence of Bossa Nova.
