Mid last century: Commercial music is a machine that generates dances that run each other over in the urge to reach the audiences and mark their place in time and history. A never-ending list of choreographies co-habit: hully gully, madison, rock, limbo, twist, and a long etcetera, until a new dance, bossa nova takes over the dancefloors. Joao Gilberto, Tom Jobim, or Vinicius de Moraes reach stardom in Brazil with this mix of samba and jazz, but the genre doesn't explode internationally until a few American jazzmen decide to import it. From there it reaches Europe, via France, thanks to Sacha Distel, the first on the continent to record an EP completely dedicated to this phenomenon. It is 1962: Shortly after in Spain, the number of artists including original or adapted tracks in their albums, escalate: Tony Vilaplana, Mina, Duo Dinámico, Latin Combo, Los 4 Brujos, Gina Baró, Grau Carol, Salomé, or Marisol, who popularizes the new trend by recording Marisol rumbo a Río (1963), a blockbuster film partially filmed in Brazil. The maestro Augusto Algueró writes the film's soundtrack. For this compilation, Adarce Records have consciously dug into the archives of three Barcelona based labels like Belter, Discophon, and Olympo to serve Spanish-sung bossa nova songs that have never, inexplicably, been released on vinyl, all songs are recorded during those two (musically speaking) prodigious decades: the twentieth century's '60s and '70s. Features Paula, Salomé, Cocky Mazzetti, Elsa Baeza, La Nueva Generación, Bruno Lomas, Seison Show, Antonio González, Antonio Prieto, Los 3 Sudamericanos, Los Aguacates, Hermanas Benítez, Los Millonarios, and Richard Y Sus Bambucos.
