Dave Pike plays the music of João Donato - Bossa Nova Carnival [1962 New Jazz/Prestige] 320 kbps - 88 mb (Reup)


Since I'm looking at the early genius of João Donato, then this is a perfect place to start. This recording precedes the Bud Shank LP by two years. Vibist Dave Pike lays down a perfect session of all Donato material & is joined by Clark Terry on horn & Kenny Burrell on guitar. If I had one critique of this early U.S. recording of this Brasilian talent & his material it would be with the drummer. A Brasilian on the kits would have been a better choice, but that said, this is still a very enjoyable listen. If you like vibraphones, then please don't miss this excellent vibed-out take on Donato. A winner & this is the Japanese issue & nicely remastered. Kinda deluxe in its own low-key way. Enjoy!

P.S. One last point. Some often think of the Early 60's as "The Beatles" era, when in truth is was as much about Bossa Nova, Bob Dylan & Motown too. To music & creativity where ever it may spring from.
