I met Brazilian singer-songwriter Carlos Lyra in June of 1962, when
my jazz sextet played in Rio de Janeiro during our tour of Latin America. Carlos then came to New York that September, to sing in the famous Carnegie Hall concert that introduced "bossa nova" to North America. The next day he came to visit me with his guitar, and sang for me some of the songs in his amazing repertoire. When I heard "Primavera," I was captivated.

Many years later, I was blessed to have the opportunity to record it with the great Brazilian guitarist, Oscar Castro-Neves, whom I had also met all those years ago in Rio.
