About: Jazz Samba is a bossa nova album by Stan Getz and Charlie Byrd released in 1962 and produced by Creed Taylor. It signaled the beginning of the bossa nova craze in America. Stan Getz was the featured soloist and the tracks were arranged by Charlie Byrd, who had first heard bossa nova during a tour of Brazil in 1961. The album was recorded at All Souls Unitarian Church in Washington, D.C. on February 13, 1962 and released in April of that year. Two songs, "Desafinado" and "One Note Samba” were composed by Antonio Carlos Jobim and were released as singles in the U.S. and Europe. Charlie Byrd wrote one song, "Samba Dees Days", while the rest were by Brazilian composers. Stan Getz won the Grammy Award for Best Jazz Performance of 1963 for "Desafinado", and went on to make many other bossa nova recordings, notably with João Gilberto and Astrud Gilberto and the popular song "The Girl from Ipanema". Robert Dimery included Jazz Samba in his book 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die. Stan Getz passed away in 1991. Tonight’s performers include NLD IJC member Victor Jones who was Stan Getz’ drummer for many years when he was alive, and toured with him all over the world.

Jazz Masterworks Series: In 2014, Niels Lan Doky began using the term “Jazz Masterworks Series” to present live performances and modern interpretations of iconic albums that have defined the genre at the now defunct The Standard Jazz Club in Copenhagen. “Unlike Classical music, jazz is mostly improvised and as a result we don’t have written scores of masterworks that can be read and played by other artists. But I have concluded that album recordings are the jazz world equivalent, hence the Jazz Masterworks Series concept was born.” Stellar casts of American, European and South American musicians from the Niels Lan Doky International Jazz Collective will perform and re-interpret the following selection of masterworks albums from Jazz’s iconic canon at Hotel d'Angleterre during Copenhagen Jazz Festival 2021: Oscar Peterson’s “Night Train” // “Ella and Louis” by Louis Armstrong & Ella Fitzgerald // Stan Getz & Charlie Byrd’s “Jazz Samba”.
