To a great many people, the name of Charlie Byrd and the updated samba beat known as bossa nova will always be intertwined. The guitarist did play a most important role in the introduction into this country of the compelling Brazilian rhythm--first on that major hit with Stan Getz and then on his own Bossa Nova Pelos Pássaros (now OJCCD-107-2). But before, during, and after the craze, Byrd was capable of much more–a remarkable improviser and a richly versatile in-person performer. This 1963 "live" session at a celebrated New York club, the Village Gate, offers a little South American flavor and a lot of other jazz elements, including the guest appearance of trumpet great Clark Terry.

with Keter Betts, Bill Reichenbach, Clark Terry, Seldon Powell
