Album Notes
"When I conjure up perfect bossa nova in my mind, it sounds very much like Bianca Rossini’s elegant Vento do Norte. Bianca’s vocal delivery is sweet and sunny, the arrangements sway and swing entrancingly, and the songs stay with you long after the final notes fade away. Each track is a gem, luxuriant, gleaming and intimate, imbued with timeless traditions and ingenuity. Vento do Norte is a triumph, Bianca Rossini’s most fully realized and enrapturing release to date." Jazz Times Magazine by Jeff Tamarkin


Following the success of her previous albums Meu Amor and Kiss of Brasil, Bianca Rossini is releasing Vento do Norte, her latest collection of fresh and new bossa nova classics.

While the golden age of Bossa Nova could be considered 1959-65 when composer Antonio Carlos Jobim, singer-guitarist Joao Gilberto, singer Astrud Gilberto, tenor-saxophonist Stan Getz, and guitarist Charlie Byrd recorded one popular hit after another, Bossa Nova has been a permanent part of the music scene ever since. As Bianca Rossini shows on Vento do Norte, a set of her new originals that build upon the lovable style, there is a great deal of life to be found in the infectious music, and not merely by recreating the songs of the past.

On Vento do Norte, Bianca Rossini introduces ten compositions that are full of spirit, cover a variety of moods, and always contain the irresistible bossa nova rhythms. The singer wrote all of the lyrics and co-wrote three of the songs, utilizing such fine composers as Peter Roberts, Grammy-winning songwriter Jon Gilutin, Patrick Lockwood, Steven Rawlins, Marilyn Berglas and Harvey Mason. Bianca’s warm vocals make each performance a memorable listening experience. While all but one of the songs are sung in Portuguese, the beautiful melodies, the infectious rhythms, and Ms. Rossini’s sensuous voice result in a set of accessible music that is certain to delight a large audience.

Among the highlights of Vento do Norte are the gentle love ballad “Doce Amor,” “Ipanema Paraiso” (which features the tenor of Jimmy Roberts), “Why I Smile,” the catchy melody of “Tic Tac do Amor,” and “Meu Sonho,” a slower piece that fully displays the beauty of Bianca’s voice. Joined by several rhythm sections with either Roberts, Rawlins, Berglas, Gilutin or Mark Nilan on keyboards, Bianca Rossini stakes out her claim as one of the finest bossa nova singers on the scene today, and one of its most important songwriters.

Born in Rio de Janeiro and currently based in Beverly Hills, Bianca Rossini has had great success in several different fields. She has been a performer since the age of three, moving to the United States as a teenager. Bianca attended the University of Maryland and George Washington University as a Dance and Theater Major, and studied at the Washington School of Ballet. Bianca worked as a print and runway model in Milan, Rio, New York and Washington DC. As an actress she landed several national commercials, music videos, and her extensive television and film credits include Moon Over Parador, Bad Influence, Mobsters, Chicago Hope, The Sentinel, Martial Law, and The Brainiacs. In addition, she composed music for Chicago Hope and The Sentinel. Bianca also choreographed Moon Over Parador, The Sentinel and several music videos. Bianca is a poet and an author and has published 3 books: Love in Black and White, a collection of poems with art by the most popular and influential contemporary landscape photographer Michael Kenna. A Brazilian Heart – Rubies, Murder, Love and Other Poems is comprised of love poems with art by international artists, written in English and in Portuguese. Julia – Confessions of a Brazilian Super Model is a semi-autobiographical tale based in the years Bianca was an international model. For over a decade she produced and hosted The Bianca Rossini Show, a weekly cable television talk show seen around the country. Her magazine column about the arts in Hollywood was featured in several lifestyle magazines in Los Angeles and online. Bianca’s first two albums, Kiss of Brasil and Meu Amor, have been featured on over 100 jazz radio stations in more than 15 countries in the United States, Europe and South America. Bianca’s music is number one on Pandora bossa nova radio, and on Spotify some of her songs have been streamed a million times.

Vento do Norte, her finest recording to date, is filled with musical magic, the soothing bossa nova rhythms, and Bianca’s warm and seductive voice. It is being released by Apaixonada Music and BDM Records and will be available worldwide starting on July 17, 2017 at www.biancarossini.com, iTunes and Amazon and Spotify.
