What makes a Bossa Nova a Bossa Nova? Whatever it is, this has it double! Or maybe it is just compensating for its relatively simple chord progression. Enjoy your Bossa! Probably. Probably a Bossa Nova.

Okay, the tuning on the bass is a bit off here and there, but the heart is in the right place.Throw a filter on this and use it an your waiting area jam. Or on-hold music. Or pre-show music for your militia function. I'm sure the calming aspects would be very welcome in all the situations! Oh, you can also use this in your dance routines. Because bossa novas rock! ... or they Bossa... not sure. You can download this in uncompressed format here. Download comes with individual tracks so you can make your own mixes.

Is it a samba? Probably. It also depends on how broadly you define a samba. Percussion comes in heavy later in the piece with a pile of street drummers for a thicker feel. I'm having a hard time describing the exact groove of this piece. "Slightly whiter than average samba"? You can download this in uncompressed format here.

If you don't get it from the title, I can't help you. The bass player is pretty awesome. Sort of island-y... in a hyper-real way.
