Bud Shank With João Donato - Bud Shank & His Brazilian Friends [1964 Pacific Jazz] 320 kbps - 72 mb (Reup)

I post this to go along with my other João Donato set. There was a big wave crashing on U.S. soil circa 1963 & this is part of that wave of Brasilians who would make the United States their home & bring their songcraft to a market that could swing with what they were swinging. This session finds João Donato being embraced by the U.S. Jazz players, namely Bud Shank. Bud is one to spot talent & grabs this artist's growing songbook & hops right into the studio with João in tow. Beautiful breakout set for this traveling salesman of song. Lovingly handled by Budd Shank on Alto Sax, João Donato on Piano, Rosinha De Valença on Guitar, Sabastion Neto on Bass & Chico Batero on drums. For Jazz heads & those who enjoy taking an early look at the genius of this gifted pianist. Very nice!

P.S. Yes, this is another Japanese issue with flawless remastering. Every track a tasty piece of sushi. Yum, yum. Tastes good to me!
