Big Band Bossa Nova is a 1962 album by saxophonist Stan Getz with the Gary McFarland Orchestra. The album was arranged and conducted by Gary McFarland and produced by Creed Taylor for Verve Records. Bossa nova means ‘new wave' or ‘new trend', and this album rode that wave, making No. 13 on the Billboard album chart in 1963 in the wake of the success of Jazz Samba (1962) and prior to the release of Getz/Gilberto (1964). Sandwiched as it is between the two classic albums of the era, it sometimes gets unfairly overlooked. The piano playing of Hank Jones is particularly good while Jim Hall plays acoustic guitar in the Charlie Byrd role. Four of the tracks are written by the arranger Gary McFarland, while the other tracks come from the Brazil's Jobim, Gilberto and Bonfa; Getz recorded Jazz Samba Encore with Jobim and Bonfa a few months later in February 1963.

The idea for this album had been planted ten years earlier, taking saxophonist Christof Lauer that long to develop this project focusing on American jazz pioneer Sidney Bechet and his French-Creole-inspired compositions. Together with the NDR Bigband, Lauer looks at Bechet in an entirely new way, interpreted by someone from a free jazz background who developed his unmistakable sound playing with legends such as Stan Getz. Recorded in only four days, Petite Fleur presents these unmistakable Bechet classics in a new light thanks to Lauer's distinctive tone and the multilayered arrangements.
