Today on The Jazz Session:

THE JAZZ SESSION #78: BUD SHANK'S BOSSA YEARS. Jason Crane interviews 
jazz journalist Marc Myers about saxophonist Bud Shank’s early influence 
on bossa nova. Although largely forgotten by modern bossa nova fans, Bud 
Shank’s band with guitarist Laurindo Almeida was at the forefront of the 
Brazillian-folk-jazz movement. Their early records ended up in Rio de 
Janeiro, where Antonio Carlos Jobim, Joao Gilberto and others listened 
to them and turned them into bossa nova.
