On “The Dave Brubeck Quartet Bossa Nova USA” is an album that was from Dave Brubeck, and it successfully incorporates three major musical influences into his quartet; jazz, classical, and Bossa Nova.
With the popularization of bossa nova in the early ’60s, practically every recording artist had to have at least one bossa nova album. This effort by the Dave Brubeck Quartet is better than most due to the high quality of the compositions, of which the title cut is best-known. Standout tracks are the title tune and “Trolley Song”.
