Jazz Samba is a bossa nova album by Stan Getz and Charlie Byrd, released on the Verve label on April 20, 1962.
Jazz Samba was the first major bossa-nova album on the American jazz scene. It was the real start of the bossa-nova excitement in America, which peaked in the mid-1960s. Though Stan Getz was the featured star of the album, it was very strongly inspired and designed by the guitarist Charlie Byrd.
Getz won the Grammy for Best Jazz Performance of 1963 for the track “Desafinado”, and went on to make many other bossa nova recordings, most notably with João Gilberto and Astrud Gilberto, and most famously “The Girl from Ipanema”.

Today makes twelve years since my dad passed away so I’m asking that if you can, please donate $12.00 to my Over the Edge fundraising page. My dad always encouraged me to be a good person and give back when you could, and always pushed me to be a little adventurous so I do this rappel with him in mind.
Why would I want to work with the Special Olympics every year? Because individuals with intellectual disabilities face their fears every day and Special Olympics has been there helping them do that for over 40 years. They provide year round sports training and competition programs for over 11,000 individuals with intellectual disabilities for free. Sports is the catalyst for acceptance, inclusion, community engagement and so much more.
