While the impact of bossa nova is palatable on some of '50s West Coast jazz, the inspiration went both ways. Trio da Paz, formed in 1986, exhibit on Partido Out not only this long-felt influence of American jazz on bossa nova, but international forms of samba and more. When, in the late 19th Century, Brazilian musicians fused their unique syncopations onto European polkas and waltzes, choro, a sort of tropical ragtime, was born. Inspiring a community of late night jam sessions, a new creative form of Brazilian jazz grew up out of this experimentation.
