    If you want to hear some classic West Coast Jazz and Bossa Nova you can’t do better that these vintage videos.

    These feature Clare Fischer and Bud Shank. Clare Fischer was one of the most sophisticated interpreters of Bossa Nova and Latin Jazz in general. Fischer had a very interesting musical career although he was little known outside the world of professional musicians. Amongst musicians he was considered a genius of harmony and rhythm. He was very approachable, however. You just had to respect his punctilious Teutonic personality that did not suffer fools in the slightest.

    These videos came form a TV show called “Frankly Jazz” that aired in Los Angeles on Saturday nights. Can you imagine such a show on TV nowadays let alone a Saturday evening? Wow, I guess we used to be a civilized society after all.
