2011 release, an incredible collection of Bossa Nova tracks from Brazil's infamous Elenco Records, the legendary record label whose releases represent a who's who of Bossa Nova artists in Brazil in the 1960s. Elenco Records' iconic output represented the pinnacle of Bossa Nova music in Brazil during this celebrated era. The best artists, the best designs, the best music, the best everything! Elenco is the definitive Bossa Nova label (the equivalent of Studio One in Reggae, Blue Note in Jazz etc). None of these tracks have ever before been released outside of Brazil, and, over the years, Elenco releases have become the holy grail for fans and collectors alike of Brazilian music. Essential for anyone interested in Bossa Nova and the music of Brazil!
