One of the first to mix samba and other Brazilian rhythms with jazz, Laurindo Almeida's early '50s jazz-samba recordings were not bossa nova, but they were way ahead of their time, and helped set the stage for what was to come. Later, after bossa stormed North America in the '60s, Almeida recorded many notable bossa-nova and jazz-bossa albums, often in collaboration with Charlie Byrd, Stan Getz and other notables. --Chris McGowan
