a little journey into bossa...

I took a little journey into The Land of Bossa Nova…in the most delightful way! I was invited to arrange the poignant and tender “My Romance”, by Richard Rogers + Lorenz Hart, for Chanterelle, Walford’s senior vocal ensemble, directed by the wonderful Trish Hart. 177 more words

João Gilberto - Águas de Março

ここ数日、寒の戻りで真冬のような寒さでしたが、私の中で、またボサノヴァ熱が復活。

最近、Stan Getz 「The King of Bossa Nova」というVERVE音源の邦盤コンピを入手したからだと思います。

Joao Gilbertoだとこれが好きです。

ボサノヴァとしては異色の緊張感が漂っていて、アシッドフォークみたいな独特な趣があります。

アシッドフォークというかNick DrakeのPink Moonをどこか連想してしまいます。
