Elegant JAZZ – Beautiful Cafe Bossa Nova JAZZ

in the late 1950s and early 1960s in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil It is mainly characterized by “different beat” that altered the harmonies with the introduction of unconventional chords and an innovative syncopation of traditional samba from a single rhythmic division.Therefore, the “bossa nova beat”, then, is characteristic of a samba style and not of an autonomous genre.

According to the Brazilian journalist Ruy Castro, the bossa beat – which would be created by the drummer Milton Banana – was “an extreme simplification of the beat of the samba school”, as if all instruments had been removed and only the tamborim had been preserved In line with this thesis, musicians such as Baden Powell, Roberto Menescal and Ronaldo Bôscoli, also claim that this beat is related to the tamborim of the samba school.

One of the major innovations of bossa nova was the way to synthesize the rhythm of samba on the classical guitar. According to musicologist Gilberto Mendes, the bossa nova was one of the “three rhythmic phases of samba”, in which the “bossa beat” had been extracted by João Gilberto from the traditional samba.

According to the author Walter Garcia, the synthesis performed by Gilberto’s guitar was a reduction of the “batucada” of samba, a stylization produced from one of the percussion instruments: the thumb stylized a surdo; the index, middle and ring fingers phrased like a tamborim.

The bossa nova wave came to renow samba and to contribute to the modernization of Brazilian music, being a watershed. The style emerged at the time when samba-canção[nb 4] was the dominant rhythm in the Brazilian music scene.

Its first appearance was on the album Canção do Amor Demais, in which the singer Elizeth Cardoso recorded two specifically compositions by the duo Antônio Carlos Jobim and Vinicius de Moraes, “Outra Vez” and “Chega de Saudade”, which were accompanied by João Gilberto’s guitar.

It was the first time that the Bahian musician presented the beat of his guitar that would become characteristic of the style. wiki
