The Bossa Nova Beat!
Liberty LST-7273
1962

The November 17, 1962 issue of Billboard gave this release a nod as a "A Billboard Pick".

This is a smooth jazz album with a focus on the bossa nova beat.

Zenter played with Les Brown, Harry James and Jimmy Dorsey in the 1940s. He formed his own band in 1959 and was signed by Liberty. His ensemble was voted Best Big Band for 13 straight years. He also accompanied Mel Torme at The Blue Room in Las Vegas.
