Liza da Costa and Hotel Bossa Nova have added passed another milestone with their third album „Bossanomia“, in which the Portuguese-German jazz quartet has pushed more boldly than ever their very particular take on the Bossa Nova. The Portuguese-Indian singer and the three musicians Tilmann Höhn (guitar), Alexander Sonntag (string bass) and Wolfgang Stamm (drums and percussion) branch out in their compositions, as if they were tracing the fine veins of the brightly colored leaves decorating the cover of the new album. A harmony of human beings with themselves and with nature is in part the leitmotiv of this musical partnership of seasoned musicians, who now as instrumentalists have ascended to new heights. They create their own jazz universe in this album, melodically diverse, laced with filigree solos and emotional verve. The stylistically varied and emotionally compelling songs of „Bossanomia“, their first album for the famous jazz label Enja, present an intriguing weave of ideas and melodies, stories and feelings, and tempo and mood changes. An album with bewitching ballads („No tapete escaldante“), enchanting melodies („Passarinho“) and a way out suite. Liza da Costa and Hotel Bossa Nova have optimally positioned themselves for the international jazzcharts and clubs with their electrifying contribution to the jazz scene.
