Softly, The Brazilian Sound

LP (Item 373173) Warner, Early 60s — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.80 38

A whole new dimension of pop from the lovely Joanie Sommers – an album of bossa tunes, recorded with strings and backing by the great Laurindo Almeida! The style is wonderfully sweet – and works perfectly with Joanie's gentle vocals – and although not all the tunes are strict bossa standards, they're all taken in a similar mode, which makes for a really unified set. The album features a few tasty debuts – including "Old Guitarron" and "You Can't Go Home Again" – plus versions of "Meditation", "Quiet Nights", "Once", "Carnival", "That's All", and "Watching The World Go By". (German pressing. Cover has a bit of sticker residue in one corner.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
