Ike Quebec - Soul Samba - Blue Note/Analogue Productions


Two LP
45 RPM
Blue Note/Analogue Productions

Taking notice on what Stan Getz was doing over at Verve in 1962, Blue Note artist and executive Quebec brings it down a notch from his heavy tenor reputation, and tries his hand at the "samba/bassa nova" rage. Exercising his command of the tenor weaving expansive, romantic ballads, he is joined by Kenny Burrell on guitar, Wendell Marshall on bass, Willi Bobo on drums and Garvin Masseaux, chekere.

This program of sultry, minor key music with a Brazilian tinge seems to have inspired Ike Quebec, who was suffering from advanced cancer that would claim his life three months later. But here his big-toned, impassioned tenor is in tact. Quebec’s take on the bossa nova craze that exploded that year (1962) is more muscular than Stan Getz’s and doesn’t rely on the familiar Jobim and Gilberto songs of the day.
