50 years of Bossa Nova. 50 years since the seminal João Gilberto recording of Jobim’s Chega de Saudade, which marked the beginning of the Bossa Nova movement.
One of the most influential of all popular music movements, Bossa Nova arose out of a striking constellation of talent based in Rio in the late 1950s. Composer Antonio Carlos Jobim, lyricist Vinicius de Moraes and guitarist Luiz Bonfa and João Gilberto all found themselves drawn to similar sensibilities – harmonies influences by jazz and classical music, sophisticated lyrics and musical understatement ¬– underpinned by a unique rhythmic guitar shuffle.
The Antonio Carlos Jobim Songbook celebrates the first 50 years of Bossa Nova. Enjoy some of the nicest melodies written by Bossa co-founder Antonio Carlos Jobim and played by some of today’s jazz greats – plus some talented rising stars. This compilation is the perfect soundtrack for a relaxed and joyful evening.
"The great Bossa Nova records are perfect miniatures, moments of serenity in a noisy century."
