In the short film Bossa Nova – the sound that seduced the world there is a range of contemporary and archival interviews with key musicians and songwriters from the movement. apparently a key influence on the soft, acoustic groove and sound at the heart of so much Bossa was the angry landlady who lived in the apartment above the one where many of the key figures met to jam, talk and share songs. part of the laid back approach was apparently designed to keep her from banging on the roof late at night. Thanks for sharing these gems!

The perfect “zen koan” of a song.

Thanks. I was only familiar with Cassandra Wilson’s version.

Just a note on the Sergio Mendes Encanto entry. There’s a Ledisi version and also a Zap Mama version on the Encanto CD. What Ledisi does on her version is absolute magic! Zap Mama’s version? Umm, not so much. But I don’t speak french so… 🙂
