Background information Bossa Novas

Bossa Novas originated in Brazil in the late 50s and reached its peak at the end of the 60s. Born in Beco das Garrafas on the Copacabana, this style of music influenced an entire generation and spread to Europe via America. The Bossa Nova was honored with the fiftieth anniversary ( “O dia nacional da BossaNova”) even in 2009. The first bossa nova song is Chega de Saudade, written by Antônio Carlos Jobim (music) and Vinícius de Moraes (lyrics) and made famous in the interpretation of João Gilberto (single 1958 and subsequently album of the same name). Gilberto and Jobim were attracting increasing attention with their new blend of samba (or the slower samba canção) and cool jazz. The arrangements were based on an often whispering vocal style accompanied by virtuoso guitar playing. Their style of music and playing was quickly adapted by other mostly young musicians. The music achieved its worldwide breakthrough with the film Orfeu Negro by Marcel Camus (made between 1958 and 1959). There, the Orpheus saga takes place against the backdrop of the Brazilian carnival. In the soundtrack, a mixture of fast samba rhythms contrasts alongside sparsely arranged guitar pieces by Luiz Bonfá and Antônio Carlos Jobim. Subsequently, several North American musicians visited Brazil and further popularized the music, such as Charlie Byrd and Stan Getz (1963 with Getz/Gilberto). Producer Creed Taylor and the Verve record label also played a not insignificant role in the success of bossa nova in the United States. Despite the language barrier, Portuguese-language tracks such as A Garota de Ipanema and Mas que nada became hits in the US. The 1964 military coup completely changed the political-social climate in Brazil: Music changed, as under censorship criticism could only be expressed in ambiguous lyrics, exemplified by Chico Buarque with his album Construção. Many artists left Brazil, most of the exiles emigrated to the USA. Since then, Bossa Nova, the local Jazz and the so-called Black Music influenced each other even more. Countless new productions with leading musicians were created. This style is often called Bossa Nova Jazz. Further examples are Sérgio Mendes together with musicians of the A&M label as well as recordings by Ella Fitzgerald (Ella Abraça Jobim) and Frank Sinatra (Francis Albert Sinatra & Antonio Carlos Jobim). This was the definitive beginning of the spread of this musical style around the world, which continues to this day.
