"This is the first ever collection of bossa nova record cover artwork, featuring stunning modernist and revolutionary designs that reflect the radical and exciting idealism of Brazil at the start of 1960s. As Brazil developed into an urban society, with 'apartment living' and consumer goods, bossa nova projected an image that was modern, sophisticated and cool… This book contains hundreds of amazing record sleeves and comes complete with full texts on the political, social and cultural history of bossa nova as well as features and biographies on many of the artists involved in the movement."

Gilles Peterson, excerpted from Bossa Nova: The Rise of Brazilian Music in the 60s.

Bossa Nova

The Rise of Brazilian Music in the 60s

Published by Soul Jazz Records Publishing
Edited by Stuart Baker, Gilles Peterson.

Reflecting this optimism in its gentle and sunny soundworld, Bossa Nova quickly became a worldwide musical phenomenon. (The first Bossa Nova single to achieve international popularity was of course the Astrud Gilberto and Stan Getz hit "The Girl from Ipanema.") But by 1964, as Bossa Nova was taking America and the world by storm, tanks were thundering through Rio de Janeiro as the country fell under the rule of a violent military dictatorship that would affect the lives of musicians and ordinary Brazilians alike for the next 20 years. Retrieving the unique visual culture of this moment, Bossa Nova Beat features hundreds of stunning full-size record cover designs of Bossa Nova and later Brazilian music from the 1960s, such as M.P.B. (Musica Popular Brasileira) and Tropicalia. The book also comes complete with full accompanying text, essays and interviews on the historical, political and social context of this Brazilian music as well as features on all the important artists and musicians of the era such as Sergio Mendes, Tom Jobim, Jorge Ben, Elis Regina, Caetano Veloso and many more. As the first visual treatment of this now popular music, Bossa Nova Beat is both a pleasure and a revelation.
