16 bossa nova stunners – all jazzy, all sweet, and all 60s all the way through! The set's overflow
ing with great numbers that form a triangle between the Brazilian, American, and European takes on the bossa sound of the 60s – featuring some favorites by artists on the left end of the bossa spectrum, and a few more surprising inclusions that make the set sound fresher than we expected. There's a number of tunes here we'd heard before, but in such a setting, they still sound mighty nice – and the package is a great one overall! Titles include "Cinnamon & Clove" by Lee Evans, "Sophisticated Wheels" by Gabor Szabo, "Terra Samba" by Fritz Pauer, "Midnight Bossa Nova" by Ingfried Hoffman, "Mas Que Nada" by Alan Lorber Orchestra, "Blues A Volante" by Baden Powell, "Tamba" by Tamba Trio
, "Sambinha" by Samalanco Trio
, and "Samba De Suenho" by Cal Tjader.
