This double-CD / 2 Part Double Vinyl is a concise guide to the music of bossa nova and comes with an extensive 75-page photographic mini-book with stunning photographs of Brazilian life during the period as well as extensive sleeve-notes contextualising the uplifting music with the social and cultural changes in Brazil that enabled the rise of the music.
The release of this album coincides with the deluxe hardback large-format book of the same name, available here
, featuring the stunning modernist cover art of bossa nova record cover sleeves in the 1960s, which is compiled by Gilles Peterson and Stuart Baker and also released on Soul Jazz.
Forget the cocktail-sipping tropical image that bossa nova became, bossa nova’s origins in Brazil are that of a stunning modernist and revolutionary music that reflected the radical and exciting idealism of the country at the start of the 1960s. This music is the real deal!
‘Bossa Nova and the rise of Brazilian Music in the 1960s’ charts the rise of the events that led to the arrival of this new musical movement and what happened next. João Gilberto, Tom Jobim, Vinicius de Moraes, Elis Regina, Gilberto Gil and Baden Powell all feature alongside many other Brazilian artists who launched their careers during this amazing period.
The deluxe double-CD pack also features 75-page perfect bound mini-book. The vinyl comes in two separate volumes of heavyweight double-vinyl (both with heavyweight gatefold-sleeves) featuring all the tracks and the sleevenotes.
