Program Notes

The music sets the scene here of a party atmosphere! In this laid-back cool groove, there is a sense of fun yet a feeling of cool calm! The music is light-hearted and intended to be easy-listening as well as toe-tapping … if not breakout into dancing!

- Program Note from publisher

Bossa nova is a style of Brazilian music, which was developed and popularized in the 1950s and 1960s and is today one of the best-known Brazilian music styles abroad. The phrase bossa nova means literally "new trend" or "new wave". A lyrical fusion of samba and jazz, bossa nova acquired a large following in the 1960s, initially among young musicians and college students.
