In a related vein and from the same period there's the Mainstream album "Two Jims and a Zoot":


The co-leaders being Jim Hall and Jimmy Raney, with Osie Johnson and Steve Swallow in the rhythm section. Not every track is a bossa nova, but several are. A lovely date for all parties; Raney's solo on "Move It" is etched into my brain.
