Bossa Nova Original Motion Picture Soundtrack by Eumir Deodata & Various Artists

Bossa Nova Original Motion Picture Soundtrack is everything good about the bossa nova sound, and it is a perfect recording for those who like Brazilian Jazz, and also an excellent introduction for those new to the sound or wanting to refresh their memories! There are 15 selections on this CD, and each of them is classic Brazilian Jazz.

There is much, much, much beauty on this collection, and two examples come quickly to mind: Antonio Carlos Jobim performing "No More Blues," and Sting and Jobim singing duet on "How Insensitive." A collection filled to the brim with perfect performances, other selections that recall memories of Brazil include Jobim performing "Wave," Carol Rogers performing "Suddenly," Eumir Deodato performing "Soul Mates," among many others!

If you want a perfectly beautiful collection of Brazilian jazz themes, this CD is the one to purchase! One word sums up this collection of songs: Perfection.

I can think of no finer a recent Brazilian jazz collection release than this to give to a loved one, or to a person new to the sounds of Brazil. Everything about this collection is excellent. A wonderful enjoyment! A must have for those who like Brazilian jazz themes! Excellent! Release date: April 25,2000.
