Product Description

Soul Jazz Records release a new compilation of bossa nova and Brazilian music from the 1960s, compiled by Gilles Peterson and Stuart Baker.

The album is a definitive study of the birth and rise of bossa nova in Brazil in the 1960s. Light years away from the cocktail-sipping tropical image that it would later become, Bossa Nova's origins are that of a stunning modernist and revolutionary music that reflected the radical and exciting idealism of Brazil at the start of the 1960s. As Brazil developed into an urban society, with `apartment living' and consumer goods, bossa nova projected an image that was modern, sophisticated and cool.
João Gilberto, Tom Jobim, Vinicius de Moraes, Elis Regina, Gilberto Gil and Baden Powell are just some of the many Brazilian artists who launched their careers during this amazing period.

An unbelievable guide to the music, the album comes with extensive sleevenotes, biographies and exclusive photography. This release comes in deluxe Soul Jazz slipcase double CD and two volumes of super-loud double vinyl.

Format: Audio CD
This is a very nice compilation of Brazilian pop in the early 1960s, with the ever reliable Soul Jazz Records team picking up songs that were actually big in Brazil rather than the more well-known international hits. So you don't get an umpteenth version of 'The Girl From Ipanema' and other well-trodden tunes but sometimes rather obscure but always very good tracks instead. Anyway, most stars of said era are present and correct (Jorge Ben, Baden Powell among others). The accompanying booklet has to be praised at it gives all the essential facts about the genesis of Samba, Bossa Nova, Tropicalism and Música Popular Brasileira (MPB). The iconography is also very good. File between brazilica! and Nova Bossa: Red Hot on Verve.

There has been a growing volume of bossa nova compilations in recent years and they are of variable quality but this one has some rare gems from the earliest days of Bossa Nova up to more recent years. While not quite up to the standard of the mighty Tropicalia compilation this is still an essential for anyone who loves early Bossa Nova

Surely one of the finest bossa compilations out there - Soul Jazz Records have done exemplary work (as always) and the research into Elenco's archive has been particularly fruitful. Check out their second, 'hard' bossa jazz follow up comp too. A beautifully produced colour booklet comes with this, all about bossa in the context of 1960s Brazil, urbanisation, design and modernism. Totally recommended.
