Volume One of Two 20-Track Vinyl Volumes
The Wewantsounds collective present an impeccable selection of bossa nova sounds from Rio, featuring hip cult classics and rarities. Bossa nova revolutionized the world in the '60s, but the revolution was already bubbling from the late '50s. Featuring key artists like João Gilberto, Vinicius De Moraes, Elis Regina, and Elza Soares - who is making a highly-acclaimed come-back - as well as more cult musicians like Orlann Divo, Johnny Alf, and Celso Murilo.
Bossanova is the perfect mix of early bossa and samba canção (with its more relaxed samba singing). Tune up to the cool Brazilian sounds of the Bossanova. Bossanova: Cool Bossa Nova and Hip Samba Sounds from Rio De Janeiro features 40 tracks (across two 20-track vinyl volumes) and comes with an essay, with track-by-track analysis, from French journalist Jacques Denis.
Volume 1 features: Johnny Alf, Celso Murilo & Conjunto Drink, Leny Andrade, Tamba Trio, Walter Wanderley, Vinicius De Moraes, João Donato E Seu Trio, Alaide Costa, João Gilberto, Luiz Bonfa & Antonio Carlos Jobim, Elis Regina, Orlann Divo, Sergio Ricardo, Ed Lincoln, Maysa, and Agostinho Dos Santos & Rosana Toledo.
