Wikipedia : This day (December 2, 1999), in Annapolis, Maryland, died Charlie Byrd, an American guitarist known for his association with Stan Getz. and Brazilian music.

@allmusic : Tasteful, low-key, and ingratiatingly melodic, he had two notable accomplishments to his credit — applying acoustic classical guitar techniques to jazz and popular music and helping to introduce Brazilian music to mass North American audiences.

@last.fm : He later moved to Italy where he studied with Andrés Segovia. In the early 1960’s he was on a State Department tour in South America where he was introduced to a new music, the bossa nova, which was the musical passion of Brazil beginning in the late 50’s.
