A very special recording, with a very special group of musicians… The members of Who’s the Bossa? are from three different countries and share an equal passion for Brazilian music: Josee Koning (voice) and myself from The Netherlands, the great Nelson Faria (guitar) from Brazil, and the amazing Daniel Pezzotti (cello) from Switzerland. This group was born when Josee Koning invited us, together with bassist Ney Conceição and drummer Kiko Freitas, to play at a Tribute to 50 Years of Bossa Nova in July 2008. Since then Who’s the Bossa? has played in various line-ups in Brazil, Switzerland and The Netherlands.
This CD contains compositions by Lenine, Cole Porter, Heitor Villa Lobos, Antonio Carlos Jobim, Milton Nascimento, Ivan Lins, Chico Buarque and two originals by Nelson. Everything recorded live in an intimate, chamber-like setting.
