Bossa Nova: This is Jazz, Vol. 29 is an entertaining 11-track collection that contains such jazz superstars as Stan Getz
, Miles Davis
, Wayne Shorter
, Charlie Byrd
, Astrud Gilberto
and, of course, Antonio Carlos Jobim
playing familiar bossa nova tunes. It's not a definitive overview of the genre, but as a sampler, it's quite enjoyable and provides a reasonably effective introduction.
