Eleven more classic Brazilian songs from popular recordings artists, Nossa Bossa Nova. This album finds the husband and wife team of Theresa and Mike Levy exposing the unique, quiet groove in these songs. Unlike their past two releases, this album puts the drumset on the sideline, in favor of mellow, percussion based sound. Not to say the songs are not grooving! Subtle surdo and other traditional Brazilian percussion instruments provide a texture that is, at once, dance-able and relaxing. This album also features much more of Mike's melodic bass playing on upright and electric. Theresa sounds as great as ever. Her voice manages to tell the story of each song, even for those with no understanding of Portuguese! Whether this is the next title in your Nossa Bossa Nova collection or your introduction, you won't be disappointed with 'Standards, Too.' Also available are Nossa Bossa Nova's first two titles, 'Beyond Bossa Nova - A Tribute to Elis Regina' and 'Standards.' Both titles are available here, on CD Baby.
