are a veteran crew. They are an eclectic bunch. They fuse a hard-core be-bop
horn section with a thumping Brazilian rhythm section, creating a unique,
exciting sound. They are, simply, Nova Bossa Nova.
The founding members of the group, Guilherme Franco (drums) and
Alberto Beserra (bass), are both natives of Brazil. They had to travel to
Japan, however, in order to become acquainted with one another and with each
other's music. It was 1975. Franco was on tour as a member of the McCoy Tyner
Group and Beserra, who was living in Japan (as he still does) caught his future
friend perform in concert. Then it was Franco's turn to watch Beserra play, at
the club where he was a featured artist. By the end of the night, the two were
jamming side-by-side, and making plans to form a band together. 20 years later
they have done just that.
Claudio Roditi, a native of Brazil, is essentially a jazz trumpeter, and
a very good one at that. Eddie Monteiro, while not from Brazil, brings a
lot of that country to his unique accordion/vocalese. Bob Mintzer, on the
tenor sax, has gained renown as an orchestrator, the leader of his own big band,
and as a member of the Yellowjackets. Joe Ford, on the flute, the alto
and the soprano sax played with Franco during the McCoy Tyner days. Pianist
Atsushi Inoue frequently collaborates with Beserra in Japan.
In 1996, Nova Bossa Nova signed an exclusive recording contract with New York's
Arkadia Jazz. If all holds to plan, we will be hearing a lot more from this
exciting band, which unites the melody and improvisations of jazz with rhythms
of bossa nova.
