The guitarist who—along with tenor saxophonist Stan Getz—brought bossa nova to the U.S. in the ‘60s, breathes new life into the feel-good, balmy, breezy music genre with The Bossa Nova Years, one of Charlie Byrd’s most popular Concord recordings. All of your Brazilian favorites—from “Corcovado” to “The Girl from Ipanema,” to “Wave”—are performed with passion and expertise by the master of bossa nova. Add to Byrd’s inimitable guitar artistry the simpatico, silky smooth clarinet and tenor saxophone of Ken Peplowski along with an extraordinarily cohesive rhythm section, and it’s no wonder that this recording instantly became a Charlie Byrd classic.
