Album Description

On Uma Batida Diferente (A Different Beat), Bossacucanova successfully continue the mission they started with their previous Ziriguiboom/Six Degrees releases, Revisited Classics (1998) and Brasilidade (2001), updating the classic samba and bossa nova sound and bringing it to a contemporary audience. Produced, performed and recorded in Rio de Janeiro by the trio during the first half of 2004, this new release features an incredible array of special guests. From the classic sound of key figures from the original bossa nova generation such as guitarist/songwriter Roberto Menescal (Bossacucanova''s Marcio''s own father) and Marcos Valle to the modern beats and production of label-mates Zuco 103 The album also features the samba soul grooves and vocals of Trio Mocotó and a rare appearance by the amazing Orlann Divo Also present are a couple members of the new generation of acclaimed singer/songwriters, Celso Fonseca and Adriana Calcanhoto Uma Batida Diferente is the culmination of years of research and love for the past, the present, and the future of Brazilian music.

Product Notes

For their third album, the merry pranksters of Bossacucanova are up to their old tricks but the magic is stronger than ever. Brazilian bossa nova was born in the 1960s and soon took the world by storm. Like all great make-out music, it was so laid-back it was virtually prone. But this was a multi-layered phenomenon, an intellectual yet lushly melodic sound constructed over a swaying, subtly irresistible rhythmic undertow. DJ Marcelinho DaLua, bassist Márcio Menescal and keyboardist Alexandre Moreira have been deftly updating the groove''s whispery charms, granting it a modern context via audacious, creatively applied beats and electronica. If anything, they''ve taken the metamorphosis a bit further this time. However, their touch remains reverent, humorous, inventive and miles removed from overkill. Just how this youthful trio has managed to emphasize the style''s muted jazz inflections while kicking out the jams is a delightful conundrum and invites repeated listening. --Christina Roden
