Laurindo Almeida - Claire de Lune Samba

I first discovered Laurindo Almeida via his album with Stan Getz, which I found at the Austin Record Convention several years ago. The first track on that album is one of my favorites, and you can listen to it on Monfresh Sessions #14.

Earlier this week, I looked up Laurindo Almeida on YouTube and came across this great interpretation of Debussy’s piece. It’s from the 1979 album "Chamber Jazz” on Concord Jazz.
