7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Stella Fitzgibbons on June 6, 2010
Format: Paperback
This divides into 3 groups: real Brazilian, Brazilian bossa nova that made it here, and non-bossa nova songs worked into the rhythm. The first group is interesting but won't appeal much to audiences; the second is very good. I added "So Nice" to my "audition" repertoire (short, sassy) and found this arrangement of "Ipanema" usable with a few changes. (There are 3 other Jobim songs which are not as good, though people will recognize them).

One thing the (never named or acknowledged) arranger did was to put improvised sections in some of the songs. I left that section out of "Ipanema" entirely, though it might fly with a more sophisticated audience.

Putting Michel LeGrand to bossa nova...I guess you gotta be in the mood for it. It will be a little jarring for some.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Most of the books in this Jazz Piano Solo series are quite good and Bossa Nova is one of the stonger ones. Good selection of well known classics mixed with some more obscure gems. Arrangements are strong yet still quite playable by intermediate/early advanced players. Most arrangements even have a modest solo added in for a bonus. I also like the chord symbols over the staff - they are a good aid to memorizing and analyzing the structure of the tune, particularly usefull for the complex bossa harmonies.
