(2-LP Set) Jacintha picks up the tempo in her first bossa nova session. Featuring a programme of some of the most well known classics of the genre including a fistful of Jobim favourites like Wave, Desafinado, Dindi, Corcovado, as well as less familiar tunes like O Ganso and So Danco Samba, The Girl From Bossa Nova is a striking change of pace and mood for Jacintha that will thrill and enthrall all of her fans. Bright, and breezy, and with superb instrumentals from tenor Harry Allen and acoustic guitarist John Pisano (ex-Diana Krall), the album is given the supreme finishing touch by the magical playing of Brazilian master percussionist Paulihno Da Costa. A must buy for Jacintha fans and all bossa nova lovers. Mastered by Bernie Grundman.
