Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

The irresistible combination of smoky bossa nova textures and velvety electronic beats has already been successfully mined by Brazilian divas such as Bebel Gilberto and Cibelle. But in the hands of Italian DJ Nicola Conte, the electro-bossa recipe continues to surprise with its wide-eyed innocence, lounge undertones and instantly hummable melodies. Conte has an ear for the melancholy feeling of pop culture nostalgia associated with the 1960s-- the Antonio Carlos Jobim records, the Michel Legrand soundtracks, the Stan Getz sessions. De Souza's sweet vocals and tender delivery are ideal for the task of resurrecting venerable samba nuggets such as Baden Powell's and Vinicius de Moraes' exuberant "Canto De Ossanha" and Caetano Veloso's wistful "Saudosismo." Equally intriguing are the handful of original tunes by Conte and De Souza--a seamless recreation of the summery vibe and enviable lightness of touch that lies at the essence of the bossa aesthetic. --Ernesto Lechner

Product Description

Produced by maestro Nicoloa Conte, Rosalia's modern Bossa Nova takes this popular Brazilian musical form and transforms it into a smokey, sultry and exotic experience that's guaranteed to put that certain someone in the right mood. 13 tracks. Leeds Music/

5.0 out of 5 stars Rosalia De Souza's first feature release July 6, 2003
Format:Audio CD
This is the same as the "out of stock" on Amazon. The difference? This one has a jewel case (at least it did in the store) and is released in the US under a different distributor.
This is perhaps the closest thing to a new release from Nicola Conte besides the numerous remixes that he's done and the Jet Sounds Revisited CD.
For a bit of background, this cd was released on Schema label, which is home to Gerardo Frisina, Nicola Conte, Fragmentorchestra, S-Tone Inc., Soulstance and the Break and Bossa franchinse and countless other dj's and producers in Italy. From that alone, you can get sort of the style of this cd. It is very jazzy, but the singer, Rosalia De Souza, has worked with other Schema artists as well. Namely, Les Hommes and Quintetto X, ranging in everything from a sort of trippy feel to jazziness.
I first really found out about Rosalia thanks to the Break & Bossa vol 5 double disc set (also on Schema label). When that compilation came out, the tracks which featured her were sort of dj prototypes. But both tracks are actually included in this release - almost identical to the ones on Break & Bossa. The style of the cd is the Bossa you would expect from Schema label artists and Conte. Up-beat and catchy, sounds of the 60's and 70's with imposing touches of modern flair. This is definitely something you would hear in a happening lounge where you can hear the person beside you yet wonder what is playing overhead.
Remakes of old Brazilian classics are included, from the first track: Maria Moita on down to Canto De Ossanha and Adriana, Saudisismo - a Caetano Veloso track, and Ipanema. Rosalia De Souza's voice is amazing - very soft and delicate.

5.0 out of 5 stars AWESOME! June 4, 2004
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
As I listened to this CD, I wondered to myself, why do I love this music so much? Referring to the sounds of Brazilian artists such as Bebel Gilberto and Now Rosalia De Souza. One listen to Saudosismo, will tell you why. I've never heard music that had so much beauty despite not being able to understand the lyrics. Nicola Conte, the producer needs to be commended for this effort. Even though his "Bossa Per Due" is awesome, this one is even better. WOW! A debate between a friend and I is very hot as to which effort is better "Tanto Tempo" from Gilberto or "Garota Moderna". It's close, but both are too good to say which one is better. The whole CD is beautiful and mesmerizing. The combination of Jazz, Electronica and Bossa are GREAT! This CD is definite proof of that. I'd take stuff like this any day over what I hear over urban radio or Top 40.

Rosalia de Souza is absolutely amazing with her voice. She truly is a gem. This Brazilian beats mix with the lounge style music is just bliss. It's been a while since I've been so struck from hearing something so good. I truly recommend this album, you won't regret it.

4.0 out of 5 stars A bright new talent from Brazil June 7, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Many folks hail young Ms. De Souza as a new Bebel Gilberto, an electronic-trip hop crossover diva... But while there are a few electro beats on some of these songs, I'd peg her as more akin to the late jazz-MPB queen Elis Regina, tackling bossa nova oldies and more modern compositions (many courtesy of Italian album producer Nicola Conte) with a brash, headstrong approach, subsuming many of the melodies to a propulsive, muscular sensibility. Works for me, mostly -- she has a nice enough voice and the arrangements are often new enough that you don't feel you're hearing just another bossa standards album. Again, I didn't think this was particularly clubby or danceable, but hey -- what do I know? I'm sure the remix record can't be far behind... In the meantime these relatively straightforward, well-produced renditions will suit most folks just fine.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brazilian bliss July 7, 2003
Format:Audio CD
Get home from a hard day's work, strip off your power suit, fill your glass with pinha colada, lay your tired body down on a hammock in the shade and listen to this girl's voice. It's dreamy, warm, spicy, soothing, exciting. And the bossa nova and drum'n'bass rhythms in the music bring you saudade and fills you with an urge to take the first plane out to Rio de Janeiro and go dance yourself silly on the Ipanema beach. Refreshing, entertaining, this record has been the perfect soundtrack for my July 4 garden party. And for the night too...

5.0 out of 5 stars Great album!! I love you Rosalia! February 3, 2006
Format:Audio CD
I never know what kind of reaction I'll have when listening to an album. Most of the time, I expect that the album will suck. (Yes, I am that pessimistic.) Anyway, around the time I picked up Rosalia's album, I had just finished Nicola Conte's "Bossa Per Due" at the time. I was disappointed with that album, so I wasn't really sure that I would dig Rosalia's album when I learned that Conte was behind the project.

I was wrong. This album is fantastic. Rosalia's voice is sweet, charming, quirky, and lady-like. "Maira Moita," is one of my favorite songs off the album. Rosalia's a wonderful performer. And, I have to give kudos to Nicola Conte for the stellar arrangements on this album. He also brought new life to the Powell classic "Canto De Ossanha" and Veloso's "Saudosismo."

On a side note - I've heard three versions of "Canto De Ossanha" performed recently by three modern albums - Daude (who does a great catchy reinterpretation r&b/pop version of the song) and Paula Morelenbaum (whose album I adore - but fails at her interpretation because it sounds cartoonish) and Rosalia's whose version is closest to original version. Her interpretation is classic, beautiful, and wonderful.

I adore Rosalia, who is definitely among the top of the modern day Brazilian divas! I highly recommend this album.
