"Bossa Nova Around the World" is a sunny opening to 2011. Despite the bleakness of the world, this is uplifting music to soothe the soul. This drives away the clouds of the "Singin' in the Rain/Umbrella" mash-up from Glee: The Music, Volume 4. These bossa nova songs combine one of Brazil's most popular genres with the sounds of Germany, Norway, Serbia, South Korea, and Algeria.

Bia's opening "Jardim" smoothly combines bossa nova with a Gallic sensibility. Nancy Vieira and Tito Paris bring in the sunbaked sounds of Cape Verde. 2raumwohnung have a melancholy Teutonic jazz song... yes, there is such a thing as Teutonic jazz Tom&Joy's "Meditation" is a cover of an Antonio Carlos Jobim song that Frank Sinatra popularized. Tom Naim hails from Paris, like Yael Naïm. Dusko Goykovich brings a Serbian Gypsy flavor to Brazilian jazz. Hilde Hefte's "Vakker Natt" brings some Rio sunshine into Norway (perhaps midnight sun is more fitting?) Stacey Kent&Jim Tomlinson give a slow, somewhat folksy cover of "So Nice" (Bebel Gilberto did a jazzier version with the late Serbian DJ Suba on Tanto Tempo) Monla brings some Seoul to bossa nova in "Railroad." Kad Achouri pays tribute to his immigrant father in the final song.

Most of the singers/groups in "Bossa Nova Around the World" are French, showing a kinship between Sao Paulo and Paris. Chanson and bossa nova are musical cousins. Listen to the sounds of sunshine!

Various Artists
"PUTUMAYO PRESENTS: BOSSA NOVA AROUND THE WORLD"
(Putumayo, 2011)
-----------------------------------------------------------
A nice mellow set of neo-bossa nova from all across the world -- from Brazil (of course), Canada, Cape Verde, Mexico and even Norway and Serbia (where they probably *really* need the sunny vibes...) There are several tracks by French artists -- that nouvelle scene is still going strong, and very bossa-friendly -- although sadly nothing by Japanese guitarist Lisa Ono, who is an icon of non-Brazilian bossa worship. As with the best of these various-artist outings, this introduces listeners to several previously unknown artists; for me perhaps the biggest discovery was the German indie/agitpop duo, 2raumwohnung, who apparently have several really fun albums out. Time for a trip to the old Record Hut to track a couple down! Overall, another nice set from the folks at Putumayo -- didn't blow my mind, but it sure sounds nice on the stereo.

I don't know why I should be surprised at Bossa Nova's popularity around the world. If people in America find Latin music enjoyable, why wouldn't that also be true in other countries? Nevertheless, hearing a South Korean woman (Monla) singing it seems odd to me. Of course, what's odd is my thinking, or lack thereof.
As has been typical of my experience with Putumayo, the recording is clear, free of distortion and all cuts are recorded at the same volume level.

This CD was suprisingly soothing and flowed really well from song to song. Track #3 is upbeat and makes me smile every time I hear it. I listen to this CD while I am stuck in traffic and it eliminates road rage (ha ha). I highly recommend this CD.

This is Bossa Nova at it's most relaxing. If you're looking for groove Latin jazz, you should try Brazilian Groove. This is more acoustic.
