Great bossa nova tunes
Aarel Hodge ( | Seattle WA. U.S.A. | 07/27/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a selection of tunes any jazz lover or party goer will be able to groove with. With classic tracks like Baby Elephant Walk, this album offers lots easy fun. If you liked the theme song to Austin Powers your in luck, Soul Bossa Nova (the tracks actual name) is just one of the many jivin' boppers you'll find here. A great buy."
Love It Love It Love It

"I am new to Lounge but knew I loved Austin Powers-type music so I took a chance on this one and this is my favorite CD. I need two copies, one for my car and one for the house! Many of the artists weren't familiar to me but it was love at first listen with Ann-Margret's 13 Men (first track), then an elevator-muzak style Girl from Ipanema and the classics Soul Bossa Nova and Mais Que Nada (you'll know it when you hear it). House of Bamboo is so much fun as is Hot Barbeque and a different version of Dave Brubeck's Take Five. It's all great - run, don't walk, to get out your martini glasses. Oh, and last but not least, the inside jacket is jam-packed with career bios of each artist. This is a must-have."
Shaken, not stirred

(4 out of 5 stars)

"This CD features 18 tracks that might have been played at a "cocktail party" back in the 1960s. It is a fun combination of vocals and instrumentals dating from 1958 to 1967. This is the kind of music that was played at parties for adults back then. None of that "rock and roll" stuff here! There is a lot of bossa nova here, plus jazz-pop and various other swinging styles. This is the perfect music to listen to while drinking martinis (not that I ever had a martini). If you are a fan of the lounge music revival, you will enjoy this CD."
