I spoke with Caetano to understand why this instrumental Bossa Nova album with a strong 60’s flavor was released in 1975; a year that Brazilian popular music was dominated by MPB and the Bossa Nova hype was non-existent. Additionally I made researches to gather more information about the group “The Bossa All. Stars” and I failed. Let’s see what we have here.

This is The Bossa All Stars – The Girl from Ipanema (1975), for Itamaraty. Caetano has an assumption, he says that this album was released in the 60’s and reissued in 1975 by Itamaraty, which is a subsidiary of CID label. I think Caetano has the best guess so far; The Bossa All Stars is also a mystery. Perhaps someone hearing the album can give us some hints, based on each musician’s way of playing. Who knows? So far, you need to trust us this great music. If you are in the mood of listening a vivid instrumental set with Hammond B3 organ, brass and guitar, this is the right choice for you. Tracks include:

01 – Garota de Ipanema
02 – Fim de Noite
03 – O Morro nao Tem Vez
04 – So Danco Samba
05 – Corcovado
06 – So Tinha de Ser com Voce
07 – A Felicidade
08 – Ela e Carioca
09 – Agua de Beber
10 – Sabia
11 – Amor em Paz
12 – Samba de uma Nota So


Não tinha esse disco. Porém, graças aos amigos Eliane, Bili e Martoni ele agora está disponível na Rádio Forma e Elenco.
