Do the Bossa Nova With Herbie Mann / My Kinda Groove
Baden Powell, Oscar Castro-Neves, Tom Jobim

Herbie Mann travelled to Rio in 1962 and came back with the album "Do the Bossa Nova", today a classic example of that happy marriage of jazz and Brazilian popular music. He teamed with Castro Neves, Baden Powell and the great Tom Jobim, the composer of Quiet Nights and The Girl from Ipanema to cover bossa nova standards and more percussive mainstream samba numbers. The result is irregular but always inspired and worth listening. The track Consolação, a dueto of flute and guitar, Mann and Powell, is hypnotic! --album description
