Charlie Byrd - Samba De Uma Nota So / O Pato

Charlie Byrd's versions of the One Note Samba and The Duck were recorded and released a couple years before the Bossa craze hit the U.S. in 1964 with The Girl From Ipanema. This 45 has songs from Byrd's Jazz Samba album, which also featured the late great Stan Getz. They were joined by two bassists (Keter Betts and Charlie's brother Gene (Joe) Byrd), and two drummers (Buddy Deppenschmidt and Bill Reichenbach) for the recording at All Souls Church, Unitarian in Washington, DC on 13 February 1962, and it was released on 20 April 1962.
