The Jazz / Bossa Nova ensemble Nova Bossa Nova creates an exiting new sound, a potent mix of powerful American Jazz horns driven by the sexy and fiery rhythms of Brazil, on their album Nova Bossa Nova: Jazz Influence. A unique blend of two musical traditions, the group is a sensual and sizzling septet with a new voice and a new vision. Led by percussionist Guilherme Franco and bass player Alberto Beserra, Nova Bossa Nova is an innovative ensemble whose breakthrough sound fuses a traditional Brazilian rhythm section with a commanding Bebop Jazz front line.


Among the fine players recruited by Franco & Beserra to give voice to this unique musical blend are Claude Roditi on trumpet, Bob Mintzer on tenor sax, Eddie Monteiro with his unique accordion/vocal style, and Joe Ford on alto saxophone. The songs on Nova Bossa Nova: Jazz Influence, the group’s first album, trace their origins to a variety of different sources, including both classic Jazz standards & Brazilian Bossa Nova & Samba. They are an eclectic bunch, combining an inventive Be-Bop horn section with a thumping Brazilian rhythm section, creating a unique, exciting sound. They are, simply… Nova Bossa Nova.


Whether poetically caressing the beats of Sao Paulo & Rio de Janeiro, playing horn lines from Jazz clubs in New York and Tokyo, or simply putting their own spin on Jazz standards, the music on the album Nova Bossa Nova: Jazz Influence (also available on CD) takes listeners on a magical journey while putting a new twist on both the standard repertoires of Jazz and Brazilian music.
