Joe Pass & Paulinho Da Costa - Tudo Bem !

After countless solo guitar albums for Pablo, Joe Pass performed this welcome change of pace, a set of Brazilian tunes. Joined by fellow guitarist Oscar Castro Neves, bassist Octavio Bailly, drummer Claudio Slon, percussionist Paulinho da Costa and keyboardist Don Grusin, Pass plays warm solos on a variety of Brazilian tunes. Highlights include three songs by Antonio Carlos Jobim (including "Corcovado" and "Wave"), Deodato's "Tears," and Luiz Bonfa's "The Gentle Rain." A melodic and infectious date that has been reissued on CD.

Huge thanks for all your wonderful re-ups. Joe Pass, Paul Bley, Chico Hamilton and many more. Sometimes it feels like being a kid in a toyshop.
Where did you get all these records from? Every day I get a new discovery. Thank you from deep of my heart.
