CHARLIE BYRD
The famed bossa nova guitarist inscribes this photo to a fan.
Inscribed photograph signed: "For John Russell/all the best/Charlie Byrd". B/w, 8x10. Charlie Byrd (1925-1999) was an American guitarist and composer, best known for his impact on bossa nova music. In 1962 he collaborated with Stan Getz on the album Jazz Samba, which brought the Brazilian styled music to North America. Originally from Suffolk, Virginia, Byrd learned guitar from his father who was a mandolinist and guitarist. After World War II (in which he served in the Army Special Services Band), Byrd studied classical guitar with Sophocles Papas and Andres Segovia. In the late 1950s he played in various bands in the Washington D.C. area before making his first trip to Brazil in 1961. Soon after he recorded his famed Jazz Samba album, leading to Latin Impressions (1962), Bossa Nova Pelos Passaros (1962), and Once More! Charlie Byrd's Bossa Nova (1963). His work received international fame, and he was even knighted by the Brazilian government as a Knight of the Rio Branco. He formed various trios throughout his 60 year career, playing with his brother bassist Joe Byrd and drummer Chuck Redd in his final years. He was one of the greatest influences to gypsy guitarist Django Reinhardt. Fine condition.
