Playful Heart

Brazilian Days
Paul Winter & Oscar Castro-Neves,
with Nilson Matta and Paulo Braga

The Bossa Nova craze took over the U.S. by storm back in the '60's, due not only to Jobim and Gilberto (both Joaò and Astrud), but also to a long list of Brazilians that included Oscar Castro-Neves, and to the efforts and influence of a few Americans at the time: Charlie Byrd, Stan Getz and Paul Winter. (Getz got too much of the credit, in my opinion, and almost all of the money, but that, as they say, is another story.) "Brazilian Days" is a backward glance to a period nearly 40 years ago by two who were there at the start: Paul Winter and Oscar Castro-Neves. Calling upon all those decades of friendship and reminiscences, these two have gone back in time and selected their personal favorites, many of which will be unfamiliar to most. And it's just as well, for this collection is as fresh as a Bahian sea breeze. --an Amazon reviewer
