It was unamplified guitarist Charlie Byrd's 1961 State Department–sponsored tour of South America that provided the impetus for what would be one of the most enduring and influential albums of all time: Jazz Samba. That 1962 collaboration with the great tenor saxophonist Stan Getz put Brazil's bossa nova and Byrd on America's musical map. But Byrd had long been enraptured by the guitar music of the Spanish-and Portuguese-speaking worlds. In 1954 he had studied with the nonpareil Andrés Segovia. This beautifully articulated recital, recorded in 1962 and '63 and ranging from solo pieces to tentets with cellos and French horn, amounts to a veritable Baedeker of Latin guitar music. The accent, though, is on the Brazilian composers who, with interpreters like Byrd, reawakened the world's melodic yearnings.

with Gene Byrd, Keter Betts, Bill Reichenbach, Buddy Deppenschmidt, and others
