Paul Winter & Oscar Castro-Neves
Open iTunes to preview, buy, and download music.
Twelve bossa nova numbers recorded as duets between saxophonist Paul Winter and his Consort cohort Oscar Castro-Neves on guitar, Brazilian Days finds the duo digging up overlooked gems from the likes of Antonio Carlos Jobim, Carlos Lyra, Noel Rosa, Vinicius de Moraes, Edu Lobo, and Luiz Eca. The numbers are gentle and relaxed, with bassist Nilson Matta and drummer Paulo Braga fine in support.
Absolutely beautiful music. I have this on cassette and put it on when I'm doing things around the house with my family or by myself. It's very relaxing.
One of the best jazz albums
Paul Winter's reputation as a new age musician might over shadow this album for some (I like his new age Paul Winter Consort). However, this is probably one of the best bossa nova jazz albums I own (and I own a lot of Brazilian jazz). Oscar Castro Neves (who sadly died in Sept 2013) is at his finest here. Paul Winter shows his true jazz roots and puts in a perfect performance. The result is absolutely wonderful. This album is one of the truly great jazz collaborations of all time. Highly recommended! You won't be disappointed.
