By 1967, bossa nova had become quite popular within jazz and traditional pop audiences, yet Frank Sinatra hadn't attempted any Brazil-influenced material. Sinatra decided to record a full-fledged bossa nova album with the genre's leading composer, Antonio Carlos Jobim. Arranged by Claus Ogerman and featuring Jobim on guitar and backing vocals, Francis Albert Sinatra & Antonio Carlos Jobim concentrated on Jobim's originals, adding three American classics - "Baubles, Bangles and Beads," "Change Partners," and "I Concentrate on You" - that were rearranged to suit bossa nova conventions. The result was a subdued, quiet album that used the Latin rhythms as a foundation, not as a focal point…

Putumayo Presents: Brazilian Beat features 11 tracks that cover the spectrum of MPB, or Brazilian popular music, in its current forms. Of course, bossa nova and samba are here, virtually part of the nation's musical DNA by now. Some of it's not even Brazilian – BungaLove, for example, are Italian, but play perfectly convincing Brazilian music, while singer Monica da Silva was born in the U.S. yet manages a laid-back, suave groove on "Ai Então." There's plenty of Brazilian-flavored funk, with both Bruna Caram and Rogê carrying on and updating the '70s sound, adding more beats to the mix. What's apparent from this selection is that there is plenty of good Brazilian music around, building on the traditions that have been forged over the years, and that in artists like Tita Lima and Fino Coletivo the future is in sure hands.

Tejano singer Graciela Beltran is widely known as one of regional Mexican music's most influential female voices. Next to artists like Rocío Dúrcal and Selena, Beltran is credited with helping to form the genre, as well as solidifying women's place in it. Born in a small town in Sinaloa, Mexico, she showed immense musical potential at an early age. After her family relocated to Los Angeles, she began performing professionally at restaurants and fiestas as early as age six. Under the name Gracielita Beltran, she began recording albums of norteño, banda, and mariachi music with local musicians. Some four years later, Beltran was noticed by record execs at EMI, who offered to produce her next record. "Baraja de Oro" was one of the first singles from the six albums Beltran recorded with EMI. It went gold, and then platinum. Her 1995 release, Tesoro, announced her as an international recording star.

Brazilian singer, guitarist, and songwriter, known for both his musical innovation and his political commitment. A leader of the Tropicalia movement in Brazil in 1967 and 1968 along with artists like Caetano Veloso and Gal Costa, he and other musicians mixed native styles with rock and folk instruments. Because Gil fused samba, salsa, and bossa nova with rock and folk music, he's recognized today as one of the pioneers in world music.

It is said that the sun usually flows from the mouths of Brazilian singers, and this is still the case this time with this beautiful album by Nina Papa! Young woman gifted to write lyrics of beautiful songs that we want to listen to loop, Nina writes most of the lyrics of her songs, 8 out of 11 this time, but she sometimes signs the music too, as for "Brincar De Amor". Otherwise the musical compositions are Beatrice Alunni or Marc Peillon, Easy Road. Not to mention the recovery of La Javanaise, Serge Gainsbourg. This is the second album of the Lady, as beautiful as a sun at the zenith, splendid as a full moon eclipse seen from the beach of Copacabana. Nina Papa had previously given us Senza Fine, a tribute to AC Jobim, because Nina Papa was the singer of the JOBIM PROJECT (composed with 4 other musicians) who honored the composer Antonio Carlos Jobim, one of the main co-founders of the Bossa Nova style in the last forty years of the previous century. Here she signs today the first album under her only name, and what an album!

With Mundo Civilizado, downtown denizen Arto Lindsay is probably the first person to successfully integrate the sounds of techno and drum'n'bass into an already established pop music style. Others, notably David Bowie, have tried to do something similar, but although Bowie's attempt in particular was more successful than most critics give him credit for, it never sounded as natural and seamless as Lindsay's. That the former king of skronk guitar was able to achieve such a fusion while singing in Portuguese is even more impressive. Highlights include the funky female worship of "Q Samba" and the scattered herky-jerk of "Complicity" (which features the deathless couplet "Complicity, unconscious wit/Borders without borders under eyebrows"). His taste in covers is a bit more suspect – he brings as little to Prince's material as you'd expect, but is surprisingly more adept with Al Green's "Simply Beautiful." Overall, this one's a solid winner, if not quite a classic.

Arto Lindsay has come a long way since his early days as one of the prime architects of downtown New York's no wave sound, a period when he played untuned guitar in the noise trio DNA and served as the first vocalist for the Golden Palominos. Since then he's been a fairly ubiquitous guest artist and has pursued his own interest in the music of Brazil (where he was raised), as well as taking a detour into slightly avant-garde dance-pop with the group Ambitious Lovers. His solo work in recent years has gotten a bit mushy, perhaps, but Prize finds him tightening things up. The drum'n'bass textures that lay on the surface of his last album like laminate are more fully integrated this time out: "Prefeelings" combines a fractured breakbeat with salsa-fied acoustic guitar and saxophones; "Resemblances" smears subtle intimations of electronic mayhem under Latin percussion and guitar, while Lindsay sings lines like "Stay calm/Keep calm/Let the room outgrow the walls" in a dry, laconic voice.

When talking about bossa nova, perhaps the signature pop music sound of Brazil, frequently the first name to come to one's lips is that of Antonio Carlos Jobim. With songs like "The Girl From Ipanema" and "Desafindo," Jobim pretty much set the standard for the creation of the bossa nova in the mid-'50s. However, as is often the case, others come along and take the genre in a new direction, reinventing through radical reinterpretation, be it lyrically, rhythmically, or in live performance, making the music theirs. And if Jobim gets credit for laying the foundation of bossa nova, then the genre was brilliantly reimagined (and, arguably, defined) by the singer/songwriter and guitarist João Gilberto…

Assembling sole compositions constructed by different inspirations, Rodrigo Leão constructed his own way of creating music, somewhere in between progressive and experimental electronic soundings. One of the most important composers and performers of the late '90s in Portugal, Rodrigo Leão started his career by working with some of the most prominent Portuguese groups of that time. Leão first started playing with Sétima Legião, an ensemble that produced new visions for Portuguese modern pop music in the beginning of the '80s. Three years later, he became part of one of the most significant musical projects born in Portuguese territory, Madredeus, again playing the keyboards.

While classically trained, Brazilian guitarist Luiz Bonfa became one of the prime movers of bossa nova, recording with Antonio Carlos Jobim and Stan Getz, and composing many bossa nova standards, including the classic "Manha Da Carnaval" from Orfeu Negro. O Violão e o Samba, originally issued in 1962, features a somewhat more upbeat program than Bonfa’s other albums of the time. And the added presence of lyrical flute and mellow vocals makes this an even more attractive addition to any afficianado's collection of original/first wave bossa nova discs.

Rosa Passos made her recording debut as a leader in 1979, but this 2003 Chesky CD may be her first to be released outside of South America. The Brazilian singer is paired with veteran bassist Ron Carter, who provides a solid melodic foundation for her throughout the date; the delightful Brazilian guitarist Lula Galvao; percussionist Paulo Braga, and, on a few tracks, veteran session musician Billy Drewes on tenor sax or clarinet. While the focus is clearly on the soft, effective vocals of Passos, who is extremely effective in her interpretations of bossa nova classics such as "Insensatez," "Desafinado," "Caminhos Cruzados," and "O Grande Amor," Carter's solos are also subtly swinging.

At 73, Gal Costa is blessed with vocal power that assumes almost supernatural proportions. The Tropicália legend’s 37th studio album is anchored on the purity and swing of her voice as she interprets a superb batch of compositions by such Brazilian stars as Gilberto Gil and Erasmo Carlos. Opener “Sublime” is a raucous disco anthem that transports us back to Costa’s ’70s and ’80s heyday, and “Puro Sangue (Libelo de Perdão)” channels the laidback funkiness of Earth, Wind & Fire. She sounds particularly radiant on the uplifting “Realmente Lindo,” but her duet with fellow diva Maria Bethânia on “Minha Mãe” is the definition of grace.
