Jazz Samba, The iconic album by tenor saxophonist Stan Getz and guitarist Charlie Byrd became a worldwide sensation in 1962. The music was inspired by the new sound of bossanova, which Charlie Byrd had only recently discovered while on a tour of Brazil in 1961.
The Richard Exall Quartet brings together some of the UK’s finest exponents of the genre to bring the sounds of Stan Getz and Charlie Byrd back to life.
The varied and exciting programme also consists of favourites from Getz Au Go Go and The Cool Sound of Stan Getz, making the most of Stan Getz’s reputation for beautiful ballads and rip-roaring swing standards, of which he was famous.
