Brazil 2016: Bossa Nova, Ballad, Romantic, Bossa
The first bossa nova records by João Gilberto, in the last years of the 50s, quickly became huge hits in Brazil. Antonio Carlos Jobim and other composers helped further develop this fusion of jazz harmonies and a smoother, often slower, samba beat, which developed at the beach neighborhoods of Ipanema and, later, the Copacabana nightclubs. Bossa nova was introduced to the rest of the world by American jazz musicians in the early 1960s, and song "The Girl from Ipanema" remains probably the best known Brazilian musical export, eventually becoming a kind of jazz standard. Some of more recent names in Bossa and Bossa Nova are; Adriana Godoy, Angel Duart, Alaide Costa,Sergio Augusto, Simone Guimarães, Thereza Blota, Aurio Corra, Edson X, Moises Santana and Lunas jr which have all contributed towards this album.
