Bossa Nova and the Rise of Brazilian Music in the 1960s!
This two volume compilation is a concise guide to the music of bossa nova and coincides with the deluxe hardback large-format book of the same name featuring the stunning modernist cover art of bossa nova record cover sleeves in the 1960s, which was compiled by Gilles Peterson and Stuart Baker and also released on Soul Jazz.
