Part one of two LP versions. 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 (MAIS 031CD/LP) -, 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. Compiled by the Wewantsounds clique, Bossanova features 40 tracks and comes with an essay, with track- by-track analysis, from French journalist Jacques Denis.
