The principal and most talented bossa nova group of the '60s, Tamba Trio started take form following the great singer Maysa Matarazzo and later the singer Leny Andrade in one season in boate Manhattan (Rio de Janeiro), acting to the side of Luiz Carlos Vines (piano) and Robert Menescal (violão).
First steady group of instrumental music in Bossa Nova, was pioneering in the use of microphones hung in the lapel in the presentations to the living creature, what the vocalizations executed for its integrant ones became more exciting.
Tamba Trio not only played a wide range of instruments but also contributed incredibly close harmony vocals. (Most bossa nova groups specialized in either vocals or musicianship, but not both.) Taking their name from a type of drum used by Milito, the trio formed in the early '60s and rode a wave of bossa nova popularity through the rest of the decade. From their self-titled 1962 debut, "O Barquinho" became a big hit in Brazil. One year later, their irresistibly swinging version of Jorge Ben's "Mas Que Nada" (recorded for 1963's Avanço LP) became their best-known hit -- it was used most famously by Nike in a 1998 World Cup television commercial. It acted intensely up to 1992, year of death of Eça.
