Lotsa Bossa Nova

Former user wrote on 6/22/2014, 11:28 PM

I have put together 3 Bossa Nova style songs:  "Desafinado", "One Note Samba" and  "O Barquinho" (Little Boat). I used all keyboard sounds except for the drums which are from a soundpool.

If, when listening, you feel the urge to get up and dance or sing or both, I say GO FOR IT! 

 Life is short.  Let your hair down and have fun!  Do what you enjoy because you just never know what tomorrow will bring.

Alright then....Thanks for listening


PS  After listening to it on here, the "Doo" voices sound louder than when I listened to it with headphones.  So Ignore that, if possible

Ho scritto la mia prima canzone nel 1991, ho smesso nel 1993 dopo aver realizzato un piccolo album casalingo e ho ripreso a scrivere e comporre nel 2011 dopo tanto tempo passato in tante occupazioni.

Fin da piccolo ho amato la canzone italiana da De Andrè a De Gregori, da Tenco a Branduardi, La New Wave ed il rock classico. Ringrazio la mia professoressa di musica delle scuole medie per avermi fatto ascoltare a 11 anni la musica classica che è la mia vera passione.

Hi Trish:

Lotsa Bossa, lotsa fun!  There will ALWAYS be a place in all four of my heart chambers for this genre.  Since Day One, I've loved the sound, and the musicians who pioneered it. 

You chose three of the most recognizable songs; a very good thing.  Back in the day, after tearing through the streets of New York's nightlife, and making a complete ass of myself, the 'Lady Bossa' Nova was the one "girl" I could go home to and be assured of many sessions of easygoing therapy.

As far as I'm concerned, the sound will remain near and dear to me.  Memories, fond memories...

Great selections, my good friend.

Hi! Ich denke, da hast Du mich auf einer Idee gebracht. Gut zu wissen. Dein "Lotsa Bossa Nova" schadet daher auch niemanden. Nun, da wir jetzt auch passend den Sommer haben, wird sich nach diesem Stück bei mir auch etwas tun. Versprechen kann ich es aber nicht. Gut gemacht.

Hi Trish:


"Você com a sua música esqueceu o principal
Que no peito dos desafinados
No fundo do peito bate calado
Que no peito dos desafinados também bate um coração"

Dooodoodoo.... doodoodoooooo, doodoodo


This is me singing!!!! 


A great work and a great selection!!!

All the best to you Trish

 Makes me want a martini.    Seriously though , retro cool. Funny how there are only a certain few notes on the keyboard where voice samples sound authentic. The brass tones that I used on Stairway were from an old Concertmate that I have and it's the same way. I copped some very exotic rhythms from that little 64 note Radio Shack Special. 

 But enough about me ; this is a cool track. And I don't think that the voice notes are too high in the mix. It gives it an Angelo Badalamente vibe.

Sandro Glavina is an italian composer, named L'Uomo e L'Ombra. The choice of the name derives from the title of the album "L'uomo e l'ombra" of the band "Abstract Music Nuova Esistenza", an experimental group founded by Sandro Glavina together with his friends in the mid-70s.

In the period 2009-2022, L'Uomo e L'Ombra has done 84 albums. The compositions of Sandro Glavina are partly influenced by progressive rock. Sandro has developed a personal style with many experimentations and actualizations. He offers music beyond borders by intertwining different styles in crossover with each other. Prog, psychedelia, classical, post-rock, jazz, pop are some of the influences that dissolve in ambient atmospheres, citations of contemporary music and minimalist nuances. Sandro Glavina aka L'Uomo e L'Ombra plays the music using VSTI synthesizers, keyboards and adds some loops. Sandro isn't a professional musician, composes and plays music just for fun, but his works reach a good outcome, pleasant to listen. L'UOMO E L'OMBRA

I know nothing about music. Only listened .. Using technology also makes possible for me to be able to make music.

  I am also into photography amateur.

I'm not here for stars score but coment with advice for improvement of my music.

at my coment on music of others, I remain honest. this must be mutual .

I give my voice just as public and not as someone who knows something from music.

 I'm open to all criticism. I want to learn something

Hi Trish,

Very laid back smooth interpretation of a classic "Bossa" style. I envision a 60's style pool bash with everyone groovin to the tunes. Super job, the Dooo-Dooo-Dooos were a cool addition.


Loved the sentiment, we should all let our hair down and enjoy the moment.

Super job.

Quite good, but perhaps to much different "instruments", why not sung by yourself?...
Good changes between the single parts...

Nevertheless for this medley
