The Recado Bossa Nova is a piece of music that no matter what, puts me in a great mood. Not just because of its obvious playful nature; for me it’s all about progression, how it twists and when it turns.
Hank Mobley brilliantly sets it up on tenor sax, and I love the moment Lee Morgan blows that first note on trumpet. Once Morgan is done tearing it up, I'm left with a huge smile on my face, suspended in a state of musical bliss. There’s also a great solo by Harold Mabern on piano, and with Billy Higgins on drums, it’s a quick trip around the world.
Turn this one way up, there's just no other way to do it.
