Five Easy Lists for Lovers. a.Bossa Nova

Two a.m Bossa Nova list for that special someone. I haven't made a serious practical list for awhile, so here is hopefully a complete series. Echoing Moka's theme, this will curve around downtempo, shoegazer and indies. The first is Bossa Nova. An atmospheric list for delicate and luxurious moment, there is no tension but few continous light flirts and small conversations in the air. With Nouvelle Vague made a fashionable run these days, I thought I raid my CD collections and rip bunch of Bossa Nova fav. So here is a list. Stan Getz, Kenny Burrell and Rita Lee are the main attraction before everything turns simpler, slower and softer. It closes with Yusef Lateef, if you will end the slow mood. Otherwise loop back to track one and repeat. Enjoy. Don't forget something light and sweet (w/alcohol).

01. Stan Getz & Luiz Bonfa - O Morro Nao Tem Vez (AKA Favela)
02. Kenny Burrell - Chitlins Corn Carne
03. Kenny Burrell - Moon And Sand
04. Rita Lee - She Loves You (Beatles Cover)
05. Shivaree - The Fat Lady Of Limbourg (Brian Eno Cover)
06. Shirley Horn - Here's to Life
00. Yusef Lateef - Jungle Plum

    If you have only one choice, download Rita Lee.

    Thos I highly recommend the entire thing, since they are all classic.

    I think I have a couple other Burrell CDs. I haven't prepare the rest of the list tho. So I'll just follow the mood whatever songs people are posting. Plus, I'll just mashed that other two list into this series.
