This double album features many of the great Brazilian  jazz bossa groups involved in the bossa nova explosion of the early 1960s. The amazing hard driving music, played by these groups who backed the famous bossa nova singers of the day - Elis Regina, Jorge Ben,João Gilberto - became known as hard bossa or samba jazz.

Sergio Mendes, Raul de Souza, Airto Moreira, Deodato, Edu Lobo - all of these artists started their careers here - all pioneering, creative musicians who defined a musical genre.

By the end of the 1960s an exodus of Brazilian musicians to the United States led to the subsequent emergence of Brazilian jazz fusion in the USA in the early 1970s. Brazilians such as Sergio Mendes, Deodato, João Donato -all of whom were integral to the earlier bossa nova scene - began to collaborate with their counterpart American jazz players, such as Airto Moreira joining the Miles Davis electric group and Dom um Romao joining Weather Report.

This album tells the story of this musical journey - an essential key to understanding the link between 1960s bossa nova and the Brazilian fusion that emerged in the USA in the 1970s. Absolutely killer tunes throughout!
