Rudy has noted his particular enjoyment listening to the music of Sergio Mendes before the formation of Brasil 66. Here is a classic Bossa Nova gem written by guitarist Durval Ferreira, who was part of the Mendes band that performed at the famous Carnegie Hall Bossa Nova concert in 1962. It's a real treat listening to the flute playing of the jazz great Hubert Laws. I cannot say enough about the brilliance of music producer Creed Taylor, who at various times produced an incredible number of albums for musical giants such as Hubert Laws, Stan Getz, Charlie Byrd, Joao and Astrud Gilberto, Grover Washington Jr, Deodato, Jobim, Airto Moreira, Stanley Turrentine, Bob James, Walter Wanderley, Freddie Hubbard, Ron Carter, Herbie Hancock, Paul Desmond etc. Creed Taylor turns 90 this year and has left an amazing musical legacy. For me, his promotion of Bossa Nova was paramount.
