I'm beginning to be a bit of a fan of Tape Five. I started with Tonight Josephine!, an eclectic mix of electro-swing and jazz, but I found that Tape Five doesn't stick to one genre. Bossa For A Coup is better described as a modern, European take on Brazilian bossa nova and jazz, sometimes infused with other foreign elements with buttery smoothness, perfect for the chillout section of a club, or a relaxing night in the living room. Perhaps it is this point that must be emphasized: Do not expect real traditional music from these European producers; also they like to grab exotic bits from here and there, the primary genre is still somewhat familiar and conventional.

But that's not a bad thing. In an age where the radio is filled with house hits that are more similar than different, this little bit of latin throwback gives it just the originality it needs without any extra baggage. What you get are dance-y tunes with a backdrop of horns, a funky jazz piano, DJ samples, over Tape Five's own repertoire of singers.

My favorite has to be Taxi to Bombay (track 6), which starts with an Indian upbeat (and Indian, I presume, lyrics), that makes me feel like I've been transported to an ethnic market, before brilliantly segueing off to a jazzy trumpet with a bossa beat as its chorus.

4 Stars because although the album just makes me smile, it's an occasional affair, and it ultimately once you get used to its sound, it's a bit monotonous. To be clear, it's different than most of the other stuff out there, but the songs aren't different enough from each other. But throw this in rotation with several other CDs, and you won't be disappointed!

You will not find much better bands in electro swing than this one. I spent over an hour before finding this treasurer. Money well spent!

It took me a few plays but this group is very, very good at producing and performing swing music. Looking forward to more helpings from Tape Five. One can beg, borrow or steal a copy of this disc but it's easier to download after purchasing from the "A - Zon".
