Combine the words "jazz" and "samba" together and what you get is bossa nova. This 1962 watershed album introduced bossa nova to America and was a sensation, becoming the rare pure jazz album to hit No. 1 on the album charts ("Desifinado," one of three Jobim tunes on the set, was also a hit single). Guitarist Charlie Byrd hand-picked Stan Getz to collaborate with him on the album, and its success revived both their careers and helped kick-off the Mod-era bossa nova craze.
