Great group for a great music! I've been in love with Bossa Nova since I started loving music... If you have a sec, check out my recordings of 'A Felicidade' and 'Fotografia' on my page. I hope my Portuguese is passable! :)

My father, Harry Babasin, actually invented the first Bossa Nova with Brazilian guitarist, Laurindo Almeida, meeting him back in 1947 on the set of the movie, A Song Is Born. They eventually put a quartet together that recorded and released two 10" albums which many jazz historians consider to be the first Bossa Nova recordings, though the term was not coined until the late fifties. The Laurindo Almeida Quartet was Laurindo on guitar, Harry on bass, Roy Harte on drums, and Bud Shank on alto sax. There are millions of fans of Bossa Nova, hundreds of thousands of artists that play Bossa Nova, international festivals dedicated to Bossa Nova, and my father and this group has never been recognized for its creation. I am, however, getting the history books rewritten to include this group of amazingly talented musicians who were way ahead of their time...

Yes, it is a very natural groove. Out here in Seattle we have Jovino Santos Neto and I also mentor with Eduardo Mendonca from Bahia.

Jovino's new record Alma do Nordeste is off the hook! Amazing Brazilian musicians. Check the 7/4 baion on there! He traveled around Northeast Brazil to meet musicians and get inspirations for the pieces on the record.

Jovino was the pianist in Hermeto' Pascoal's Gruppo from 1978 -1992. Now he teaches at the Cornish School of Music here in Seattle.
