Recorded at All Souls Unitarian Church in Washington, D.C. on February 13, 1962, and featuring DC Jazz legends Charlie Byrd and Keter Betts, Jazz Samba signaled the beginning of the Brazilian bossa nova craze in America.  

Stan Getz won the Grammy Award for Best Jazz Performance of 1963 for "Desafinado", and went on to make many other bossa nova recordings, notably with João Gilberto and Astrud Gilberto and the popular song "The Girl from Ipanema".
