I'm curious about Bossa Nova, but I don't know where to start. My usual tastes in music are Classical, Opera, and occasionally Jazz (Oscar Peterson, to be specific). Which Bossa Nova albums do you think I might enjoy?
Thanks for answering.
Bossa Nova CD recommendations?musicals
Ow, find any cds with astrud gilberto and or stanley turrentine/stan gets.
Shirley Scott would be great too (be aware there are lots of Shirley Scotts out there doing music, only a few get into instrumental bossa nova you can lounge or dance 2)
There are 2 many different tracks spread over numerous of albums.
You like tracks like Aqua De Beber?
Maria Quiet? One Note Samba? Then aforementioned artists are what you need.
Other tracks I personally like are:
*Howard Roberts - Dirty Bossa Nova
*Julie London - Fly Me To The Moon
*Walter Wanderly - Summer Samba
*Shirley Scott - Noche Azul
And "Bola Sete - Bettina" wich is bossa nova but has this movie like feel and lots of relaxed spanish guitarring..
E Bass uncluded...
Last 4 reccomendations (except julie londons are instrumental)

A.C.Jobim/Joao gilberto/astrud gilberto./luis bonfa/ etc.....
This question get asked a lot.
Get JAZZ SAMBA by Stan Getz and Charlie Byrd. Then look for titles featuring Getz and Luiz Bonfa and Laurindo Almeida.
You can't go wrong with the classics.
Keep a close eye for compositions by Antonio Carlos Jobim, the idiom's master.
The one with the A.C.Joblim hits by Stan Getz and the Gilbertos
