Format: Audio CD
Summer 2003 was a great year for compilations. Brazilution, Brazil After Dark, Sister Bossa 4, Nova Latino and several others came out. But of those that came out, Sunswept/Varese put out a real gem titled "Cafe Samba" which featured some unique and very smooth cuts. Granted 75% of the cuts on that one were taken from a combo of Sister Bossa series/Brazilution/Brazil Remixed, it was still a good cd. 2004 saw the follow up to the cd come out and it flew under the radar of many. In fact, I remember picking it up in August but lost it two days later, only to find it a couple of days ago in a random jewel case. Not a good sign.

In my opinion, this was a capable competitor but it just didn't have the same originality or 'magic' that the first one did and left you thinking 'meh'. It starts out with a more melancholic "Maracana" and is followed up with Thievery Corporation's "Samba Tranquilla". The good songs were the ones that weren't so popular yet - you get a taste for BossaCucaNova's busy 2004 with "Ultra Samba", a very nice beat. Barrio Jazz gang's "Copacabasa" is also sorta funky too. Unfortunately there's quite a bit of filler there and some of the songs, even the more upbeat ones just didn't seem particularly inspired to me and was like a forced Brazilian ambiance. Panaphonic is one of those groups that I never got into, even on Varese records Jazz Lounge II cd. And let's face it, Nicola Conte's "Bossa Per Due" is almost an eye-sore now on any nu-bossa compilation. And Racoon's "Sensacao" is a song that either you love or you hate, but I didn't like that it was chopped in the beginning, giving it an unusual flow. But "Sabor Antibe" by Time Passing is a solid wind-down to this solid but un-remarkable cd.

...and this "pudding" can be judged by the amount of romance it can conjure up between a couple. I have owned this cd for a few years now and feel a need to rise to its defense after reading the only other review posted here.
This music has transported myself and a partner straight into romance-land every time with the combination of musical excellence and variety of songs. Whether or not some of the music has been on other compilations is irrelevant; if you haven't been exposed to those others don't worry-this baby is the real deal! It is a terrific blend of lounge/chill/samba sounds that make the perfect background for entertaining and/or romantic encounters. Give it a try.

I truly enjoy listening to this cd. Lots of fun and a some serious lyrics that make you pause and reflect on some serious worldwide events and issues. Sound quality is great. I do recommend this cd.
