Regular price $ 22.00

Bossa Nova U.S.A. is a studio album released by the Dave Brubeck Quartet in 1963.


Since 1955, Brubeck had composed and performed pieces originating from influences outside of the European musical tradition, in which this album, released during the bossa nova craze in the United States of the late 1950s and early 1960s, can be best categorized.[6] It is intended to be "impressionistic" of "the cool wave from Brazil."[7] Recorded through most of 1962, and released early in 1963,[1] the album was designed to be effective on the pop charts.[2] All tracks were recorded in New York City.[4] Five tracks were recorded on January 3, 1962 in a session dedicated to bossa nova.[8] Two additional tracks were recorded on Thursday, July 5 that year in another dedicated session, while an additional two were recorded the same day the next week in a session with an additional track that appeared on the 1965 album My Favorite Things.[8] The last track to be recorded was the title track, laid down on October 25, 1962[4] in a session that also included three songs appearing elsewhere.[8] This album sits in stark contrast to the "time"-themed series of albums, in that each track is typified simply by a samba-based rhythm
