VA • Bossa Nova For Lovers



Review by Tim Sendra
The bossa nova is tailor-made for romance with its languid rhythms, smooth and easy melodies, and intimate, sexy vocals. Bossa Nova for Lovers is 16 tracks of classic '60s bossa nova from Verve. The collection features a good mix of vocal tracks and instrumentals. On the vocal side there are five Astrud Gilberto songs including one from the record she did with organist Walter Wanderley. Two tracks from the landmark Getz/Gilberto album, "Vivo Sonhando" and "O Grande Amor," are also included, João Gilberto's lovely vocals much to the fore. On the instrumental side are five Antonio Carlos Jobim tracks taken from his two Verve records that feature the composer playing his guitar with very lush orchestra backing, two Stan Getz and Laurindo Almeida duets, and one duet between Stan Getz and Charlie Byrd. The music is lush and the mood is unswervingly romantic. The only problem with the disc is that instead of the famous version of "The Girl From Ipanema" with Astrud Gilberto on vocals, the disc has the Jobim instrumental version. Still it is a very nice collection and is recommended for bossa nova fans looking for a bit of romance.

La bossa nova está hecha a medida para el romance con sus ritmos lánguidos, melodías suaves y fáciles, y voces íntimas y atractivas. Bossa Nova para los amantes es 16 pistas del clásico bossa nova de los años 60 de Verve. La colección presenta una buena mezcla de pistas vocales e instrumentales. En el lado vocal hay cinco canciones de Astrud Gilberto, incluida una del disco que hizo con el organista Walter Wanderley. También se incluyen dos temas del histórico álbum de Getz / Gilberto, "Vivo Sonhando" y "O Grande Amor", con las hermosas voces de João Gilberto en un primer plano. Del lado instrumental hay cinco pistas de Antonio Carlos Jobim tomadas de sus dos discos de Verve que presentan al compositor tocando su guitarra con un respaldo de orquesta muy exuberante, dos dúos de Stan Getz y Laurindo Almeida, y un dúo entre Stan Getz y Charlie Byrd. La música es exuberante y el ambiente es increíblemente romántico. El único problema con el disco es que en lugar de la famosa versión de "The Girl From Ipanema" con Astrud Gilberto en la voz, el disco tiene la versión instrumental de Jobim. Aún así, es una colección muy agradable y se recomienda para los fanáticos de bossa nova que buscan un poco de romance.
