Liner notes on back cover:

‘Bossa Nova: The new Bossa Nova dance rhythm is the most exciting musical current to sweep through this nation since the Cha Cha Cha. Because of its gay beat and the tender simplicity of its melodies, Bossa Nova has already gained wide acceptance by the American public. “Desafinado,” which means “slightly out of tune,” is currently one of the country’s top records hits and leads off this recording. The album’s second selection, “Samba De Uma Nota So” (One Note Samba) has also gained great favor among fans of the new wave of music from Brazil.

Bossa Nova is the outgrowth of dissatisfaction with the traditional samba among members of the younger generation of poets and musicians in Rio De Janeiro. They felt that the samba rhythms were growing cold, becoming mechanical, with too many influences of the Mexican bolero, the Argentine tango, and the West Indian merengue creeping into the dance. These angry young men felt that the lyrics had become oversophisticated so that they no longer reflected the intense joy for living that is basic in the spirit of the Brazilian people. Therefore, borrowing from modern American jazz and contemporary classical music, such Bossa Nova pioneers as Joao Gilberto, Carlos Jobim and Oscar Castro Neves fashioned an excellent new musical style based upon the roots of the traditional samba. The term “Bossa Nova” actually means a new flair, a new knack, a new way of doing things. Since its birth in 1959, the Bossa Nova movement has captured the hearts of Brazilians and is now claiming the respect, admiration, and allegiance of people all around the world who love lively music with a joyous message and a bright, bold beat.’
