NA MEIA LUZ
For the first time Hotel Bossa Nova recorded without any overdubs, with everything done live and played without gimmicks. It was a risk that paid off and that can now be heard on the uncannily harmonic album NA MEIA LUZ (twilight).
It is also a contemporary extension of the classical Bossa Nova. Because in the basic character of their pieces Hotel Bossa Nova draw consciously on the musical legacy of history JOAO GILBERTO'S and ANTONIO CARLOS JOBIM'S hymns from the late 1950s. As Gilberto and Jobim did then, the NA MEIA LUZ pieces offer up unusual harmonies and syncopations, played with a dazzling simplicity.
