This is VERY enjoyable collection of guitar centered Christmas songs done in bossa nova style. All the tracks, except number 11 were genuine bossa nova tempo, some fast, some slow, with nylon string guitar on rhythm, and electric jazz guitar on lead. Note: there is no mention of who the performers are. Very recommened for bossa lovers! Merry Christmas!
I checked out a lot of bossa nova style christmas music before getting Bossa Nova Nouveau. I prefer music that sounds organic and less processed - music that is played live by talented real musicians with feeling. You know it when you hear it, and this set delivers it on all accounts.
