If you love the art of bossa nova and more generally the delights of the specific art of soft singing wrapped in jazz Rosa Passos must surely be up there at the top of your list of singers in the pantheon especially if you have heard the marvellous Amorosa or seen the singer-guitarist live, certainly outdoors in Valletta was a thrill hearing Passos in 2005 consummately at ease with her musicians on stage and communing with the audience so joyfully.

Storyville are issuing a beautifully captured live recording of the great Brazilian (check the sound of the applause as one marker as to the atmosphere) recorded in the best place of all, a jazz club. This was on 7 July 2001 in Copenhagen at the Jazzhus Montmartre, Passos there with pianist Fabio Torres, bassist Paulu Paulelli and drummer Celso de Almeida. 'Sábado Em Copacabana' ('Saturday in Copacabana') is streaming ahead of the 21 May release of Dunas – Live in Copenhagen. SG
