About

More Bossa Nova classics and hidden gems - 21 original albums on 10 CDs - including hits by Joao Gilberto, Antonio Carlos “Tom” Jobim, Sergio Mendes, Joao Donato, Luiz Bonfa, Dorival Caymmi and many more.

The music, which originated sixty years ago as a new wave (Portuguese: Bossa Nova) in Brazil and soon conquered the rest of the world with a little help from a certain “Girl From Ipanema” by Stan Getz and Joao Gilberto, retains its elegant charm and life-affirming vitality to this day. On the first 10-CD box “Bossa Nova: A Brazilian Love Affair” we gathered the most important classics from the early days in Brazil. The second volume truly is “Another Brazilian Love Affair”, presenting even more masterpieces and hidden gems. With “Joao Gilberto”, his third album, we complete the great trilogy of the singer and guitarist who symbolizes all the mysteries and virtues of Bossa Nova.

When he and his colleagues conquered New York’s legendary Carnegie Hall in the heart of Manhattan in 1962, the tape machines were running, so we can still enjoy the magic of this overwhelming evening. Tom Jobim, Vinicius de Moraes and Billy Blanco also transport us back to the early years of the Bossa Nova. Many of the artists who did not make it onto Vol.1 simply due to lack of space are finally on this new 10-CD set, like the wonderful singer and guitarist Bola Sete, the virtuosic Walter Wanderley and, of course, Sergio Mendes with his debut album. Lucio Alves, Joao Donato, Luiz Eca, Tito Madi, Dorival Caymmi and the singer Maysa also show how diverse the Brazilian music scene was. “Another Brazilian Love Affair”, our second retrospective of the legends of Bossa Nova, comes to a crowning conclusion with a brilliant live concert by Joao Gilberto, Tom Jobim, and Vinicius de Moraes.
