Liner Notes by Arnaldo DeSouteiro:
 
Acclaimed as one of the world's greatest composers and guitarists, Luiz Bonfá recorded and released "Jacarandá" in 1973. Featuring magnificent orchestral arrangements by Eumir Deodato, who helped assemble an impressive all-star cast (which included Stanley Clarke, Airto Moreira, Ray Barretto and John Tropea, all of them heard on Deodato's mega-hit "2001"), "Jacarandá" soon achieved the status of a classic fusion album.
 
"The purists, who expected to listen to another bossa nova album with soft guitar and unobstrusive percussion, were shocked," remembers Bonfá. "In many ways, Bonfá was way ahead of his time," adds Deodato, who conducted the orchestra in three sessions taped in the famous RCA Studios in New York, whose airy, ambient sound had for decades contributed to legendary recordings by Sinatra, Toscanini, Broadway soundtracks and countless others.
 
"We tried to not over-rehearse the tunes, to keep a very spontaneous atmosphere," Bonfá says. "For me and for all the other musicians, it was a magical experience," comments Phil Bodner (who took part on sessions by Miles Davis and Billie Holiday), leader of the reed section. "We clapped appreciatively after each take, and more than once I found myself day-dreaming, looking upward at the arching ceiling of the RCA Studio, which, by the way, was converted into a storage warehouse in 1992."
 
Also on the band were Idris Muhammad (aka Leo Morris), already a seasoned veteran and today adored as an acid-jazz myth, and keyboardist John Wood, then a newcomer, whose father had been the founder of Dot Records, for which Bonfá recorded many albums in the '60s.
 
Now reissued on CD for the first time, "Jacarandá," which originally appeared on the now-defunct Ranwood label, stands out as Bonfá's first fully realized attempt to bridge the worlds of contemporary jazz and classical music, also incorporating rock, r&b and latin elements in this exciting fusion... and uniquely Bonfá! Whether his conceptions are of a classical work like Granados' "Dance No.5," or of a movie theme like "The Gentle Rain" or new tunes written specially for this album, they are instantly recognizable, bearing the special stamp of a Bonfá creation.
 
Born in Rio de Janeiro on October 17, 1922, Luiz Bonfá studied guitar as a child with Isaias Savio. Bonfá's progress was fast and Savio encouraged him to pursue a career in classical music. Instead, Bonfá decided to move into the popular field and began performing both as a soloist and as a member of the Quitandinha Serenaders vocal group, working on radio and in Rio's leading nightclubs during the '40s and '50s.
 
In 1957, Bonfá moved to New York. He immediately impressed Mary Martin and joined her as special guest in extensive tours during 1958. Soon after he was invited by French film director Marcel Camus to write the original music for "Black Orpheus," which went on to win the Golden Palm in the Cannes Film Festival and the Academy Award as Best Foreign Film in 1959.
 
Bonfá's work with Mary Martin and Julie Andrews, the rave reviews of his first albums for Capitol ("Luiz Bonfá's Brazilian Guitar") and Atlantic ("Amor!"), and the success of "Black Orpheus" (its soundtrack, which also featured some songs by Antonio Carlos Jobim, became a best-seller) helped to establish the guitarist's popularity in the USA. The film's main themes, "Manhã de Carnaval" and "Samba de Orfeu" became international standards, recorded by jazz and pop artists alike; they also introduced the world to bossa nova - a musical style Bonfá helped to create.
 
In 1962, Bonfá did a triumphant appearance at the historic Bossa Nova at Carnegie Hall concert, being the only artist to receive a standing ovation that night. Invited by producer Creed Taylor to sign with the Verve label, Bonfá recorded "Composer of Black Orpheus Plays and Sings Bossa Nova" backed by Lalo Schifrin's arrangements. His second Verve album, "Jazz Samba Encore!," was an even bigger hit, pairing Bonfá with the late Stan Getz. It remained in the Billboard pop chart for three months in 1963.
 
During the Sixties, Bonfá recorded extensively for the Philips, Epic, Mercury and Dot labels; performed at the Village Vanguard and the Café Au Go Go; toured Europe several times with his wife, singer Maria Helena Toledo; was a regular guest on the Perry Como, Johnny Carson, and Merv Griffin TV shows; and even wrote successful beer jingles for Falstaff. Bonfá also scored twenty movies, including "The Gentle Rain" in '65 (its main theme became a jazz standard) and "Live A Little, Love A Little" in '68, starring Elvis Presley. Its love theme, "Almost in Love," a sensuous bossa recored by Elvis, was released as a single and reached the Billboard pop chart in September '68.
 
In the early Seventies, Bonfá signed with RCA, recording such splendid albums as "The New Face of Bonfá," "Sanctuary" and "Introspection," all now collector's items. In 1972 he toured with an all-star jazz group made up of George Benson, Eumir Deodato, Ron Carter, Jack DeJohnette and Stanley Turrentine, performing at the National Theater in Port Au Prince what DownBeat called "the first jazz concert put on in Haiti." Back in NY, he started to write the material for "Jacarandá," which was followed by "Manhattan Strut" in '74.
 
After performing a concert with Dave Brubeck at Washington's Kennedy Center in '74, Bonfá decided to return to Brazil for good, making Rio his home base. Bonfá has worked at his own pace since then. He toured Europe in '76, doing several TV specials, and also toured Australia in '78, recording a best-selling album with local reedman Don Burrows. In 1981, the "Bonfá/Burrows/Brazil" was issued in the USA by the JazzMan label, and the following year he began to play an Ovation guitar model specially designed for him. Bonfá did a very rare two-week engagement at Fat Tuesday's, NY, in 1987, with singer Yana Purim as a guest (he had recorded on Yana's "Bird of Brazil" album), and returned to the USA two years later to cut an acclaimed CD for the Chesky audiophile label, "Non-Stop to Brazil."
 
In the early Nineties, his "The Bonfá Magic" album, a worldwide release which I had the honor to produce, was received by the jazz press as a masterpiece. In the USA, where it was released by the Milestone label, it became a Top 40 album in the jazz radio charts in 1993. That same year, Bonfá was featured along with Milton Nascimento, Caetano Veloso and Chico Buarque on Toots Thielemans' "Brazil Project Vols.1 & 2" for BMG. After signing with the GSP label for a solo album, "Moods," which was recorded in San Francisco and misteriously remains unreleased, Bonfá started to collaborate with Brazilian singer Ithamara Koorax in 1994. After some live duo performances, they released "Almost in Love/Ithamara Koorax Sings the Luiz Bonfá Songbook" on the Paddle Wheel label. Featuring Deodato, Ron Carter, Larry Coryell and Sadao Watanabe, it became a Top 15 album in Japan, in 1996.
 
Among the artists who also covered some of Bonfá's 500 songs written during 60 years of career are: Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, Quincy Jones, Sarah Vaughan, Carmen McRae, Peggy Lee, Julio Iglesias, Jimmy Smith, the Paco De Lucia/John McLaughlin/Al DiMeola trio, Oscar Peterson, Joe Pass, McCoy Tyner, Tony Williams, Steve Lawrence, Eydie Gormé, Luis Miguel, and lately The 3 Tenors (Carreras/Domingo/Pavarotti).
 
Since the mid-'80s, Brazilian sounds have been an essential part of the Acid Jazz scene. Some of Bonfá's albums from the late '60s and early '70s became dancefloor favorites both in Europe and Japan. His song "Rio," covered by Steve & Eydie, was considered an "all-time classic" by jazz DJs such as Gilles Peterson and Paul Bradshaw, being included on the famous Jazz Juice compilation series. In '96, Koorax's version of "Empty Glass" received a trip-hop remix. The London-based Smoke City group sampled "Bahia Soul" on their biggest hit, "Underwater Love." The Bonfá/Getz version of "Sambolero" became the main theme of Greg Motolla's "Daytripper" film. And Brazilian pop band Planet Hemp, led by rapper Marcelo D2, sampled Bonfá's "Jacarandá" on their song "Se Liga."
 
One more evidence that once again the time is right for the "Jacarandá" album - and it sounds as contemporary and up to the minute as when it was first released. 'Nuff said. Dig it!
