Review :
Bossa jazz, done Italian style -- handled here by two wonderful leaders in a groove that's as laidback as it is soulful! Tenorist Gianno Basso sounds beautiful here -- gliding gracefully across flowing rhythms that offer a really unique take on the bossa -- quite spacious at points, and with a lightness that's quite fresh -- not like any other modern bossa jazz dates we can think of, thanks to the talents of arranger Riccardo Biseo, who also plays piano on the set. The guitar of Irio De Paula has a sharpish edge, even when skipping along the grooves -- a rasp that brings even more humanity into the record next to Basso's tenor. Titles include "Lamento", "Cartao De Visita", "Recado Bossa Nova", "Groovy Samba", "Blue Bossa", and "Quo Vadis Samba". Produced by Paolo Scotti.
