Big Band Bossa Nova is a 1962 album by saxophonist Stan Getz with the Gary McFarland Orchestra. The album was arranged and conducted by Gary McFarland and produced by Creed Taylor for Verve Records. This was Stan's second bossa nova album for Verve following Jazz Samba, his very successful collaboration with guitarist Charlie Byrd. The music was recorded at the CBS 30th Street Studio in New York City on August 27 and 28, 1962.
Fresh from the sudden success of Jazz Samba and "Desafinado," Stan Getz asked the 28-year-old, strikingly gifted Gary McFarland to arrange a bossa nova album for big band as a follow-up. Getz is always his debonair, wistful, freely-floating self, completely at home in the Brazilian idiom that he'd adopted only a few months before

Recorded in 1962, Stan Getz’s Big Band Bossa Nova which features his tenor sax in a series of magnificent arrangements by Gary McFarland is an album from a time when the world was awash in good music. Mainly through his early association with composers Antonio Carlos Jobim, João Gilberto and João’s wife, vocalist Astrud, Getz was to become personified by his association with the bossa nova music from Brazil that became an international sensation in the early 1960s. I had written a few bossa nova arrangements for Cal Tjader's group, and Stan had recorded a jazz samba album with Charlie Byrd. We both enjoyed working with this music, so we decided to do a big-band album with four songs by Brazilian composers and four songs of mine. MANHA DE CARNIVAL (Morning Of The Carnival) is a theme from BLACK ORPHEUS.
Info for Big Band Bossa Nova. For many North American music fans, Stan Getz was the figure associated most closely with the Brazilian jazz craze in the early 1960s. Unlike classic albums like Getz/Gilberto, however, 1962's „Big Band Bossa Nova sidesteps the delicate, airy quality of traditional bossa nova for a fusion music that folds in the bold, brassy sound of a large jazz ensemble. Bossa nova purists may take issue with the fusion, which loses something of the form's elegance in translation, but there's still plenty to appreciate here. Fresh from the sudden success of Jazz Samba and "Desafinado," Stan Getz asked the 28-year-old, strikingly gifted Gary McFarland to arrange a bossa nova album for big band as a follow-up. Getz is always his debonair, wistful, freely-floating self, completely at home in the Brazilian idiom that he'd adopted only a few months before.
