Album Notes
Inspired by the Bossa Nova and Samba of Brazil, in particular Rio de Janeiro, where people love to live, laugh and make music.

“Great Rhythms and smooth moves is what Paul Donat has musically given us in this CD. Turn the volume up just a bit and relax to some great music that will bring Brazil right to your house."
Leon Reyes KVMR Radio 89.5 Fm Nevada City/Sacramento Ca Host: Leon's Jazz In A Box

“The CD is awesome!…Congrats on a great recording!”
Jaymz Bee, Host of Jazz in the City
JAZZ.FM91 Radio Toronto

“I only wish we received more music like this…”
Ron Burd, Music Director
CIUT-FM Radio Toronto

Featuring sax, trumpet, vocals, piano, bass, drums and percussion in an ongoing interplay that recreates the moods of a vacation in Rio. From the light and lively opener "Postcard" to the crazy jungle adventure "Coo Coo", before you sail off into the sunset with "Ipanema Reprise". In between you get the title track "Rio Bossa", a Bossa strut that takes you to the Rio sidewalks for fun and unforgettable sights.

The Tracks:
1. Postcard - Sweet samba with scatting vocals, guitar, soprano sax, percussion and bass.

2. Rio Bossa - The sax and the trumpet interplay behind drums, piano and bass create an energetic rhythm.

3. Ipanema Breeze - Sweet saxophone and acoustic guitar in intimate interplay.

4. The Beat Of Brazil - Tenor sax and trumpet take the lead with piano, bass and drums in tow.

5. Breakfast Samba - The song heats up with an energetic sax and drumset improvisation that leads into a vocal scat duet with guitar, bass and percussion.

6. Quiet Night - A beautiful ballad featuring flugelhorn and sax with bowed bass, piano and quiet percussion.

7. Coo Coo - Starting with jungle sounds and developing into a full-tilt off-kilter stomp with sax and trumpet, bass, piano, drums and lots of percussion.

8. Ipanema Reprise - This classic Bossa Nova features the sax and flugelhorn with lush accompaniment by piano, bass and drumset.

Featuring: Paul Donat (bass, guitar, vocals), Mike Murley (saxes), Kevin Turcotte (trumpet, flugelhorn), Gordon Sheard (piano), Alan Hetherington (drums, percussion), Skip Beckwith (bass), Claire Shaw (vocals), Anil Sharma (drums), Tom Roach (percussion)
