Bossa Nova: Sounds of Brazil explores this beloved genre born of the fusion of Samba and Jazz. The Acoustic Guitar is at the heart of Bossa Nova, so plenty of guitar sessions were recorded across the pack, performed by Andrés Levin and Jaxx Landry themselves. Andrés lived and worked in Brazil for more than 5 years, a timeframe in which he became a connoisseur of Brazilian musical styles.
Bossa Nova’s early origins date back to the late 1950s, when a small group of mainly middle-class students, artists and musicians came together on the beaches of Rio de Janeiro to create a new sound. The most influential artists of this movement were João Gilberto, Antonio Carlos Jobim, Astrud Gilberto and Stan Getz, among others. Bossa Nova literally means “new trend” or “new wave” in Portuguese.
Other instruments included are flute, french horn, pandeiro (brazilian tambourine), agogo, surdo, vocals, electric piano and Ubass (Ukulele Bass). Tempos range from 80bpm all the way to 170bpm. Drums and percussion were recorded by legendary Azymuth drummer Ivan “Conti” Mamao, who sadly passed away shortly after recording them. We would like to dedicate this pack to his memory and thank him for the great impact he made on Brazilian funk and fusion. Additional percussion was recorded by Cuban musician Yaroldi Abreu.
