From four solo albums by the Argentinian percussionist, master of the traditional Bomba drum: dj-tool workouts to piano-dappled rhythm fantasias, Afro-Latin sax grooves to roots. Check the opener.
Two beautiful 1962 albums: Muito A Vontado, JD on piano, with the likes of Sebastian Netto and Milton Banana, authentic Brazilian jazz; Bossa Nova Carnival, devoted to his music, with Dave Pike, Kenny Burrell…
Previously unissued piano duets recorded live in a Rio bar in 1979, some tracks with Marc Johnson sitting in, and one with Leny Andrade singing.
Introducing the bossa nova in 1959, the original LP plus extras. Appearing effortlessly cultured and crafted, as natural as breath.
From 1958-61, his first three albums. Genius.
