Ipanema Lounge Project

The recordings of the Ipanema Lounge Project, a professional musical ensemble from Los Angeles, are compositions by the Brazilian composer Antônio Carlos Jobim, who was a primary force behind the creation of the modern Bossa Nova style of the 1960’s.

These meanwhile classical jazz songs; Dindi, One Note Samba and Corcorvado, are sophisticated interpretations which perfectly capture the mood of the time. On the same note, these jazz tunes are infused with a modern, easy-going, contemplative and seductive chill-out Lounge feeling.

Backed by incredible rhythmic talent on bass and percussion, the core of the ‘Ipanema Lounge Project’ features the sultry voice of the Nu-jazz singer/songwriter Frances Livingsand the harmonious tones of the classical guitarist/composer Greg Porée, currently also playing on the TV hit show Dancing with the Stars.

What makes the Ipanema Lounge Project so special is not only their musicianship and musical style. Despite the popularity and recognisability of Jobim’s songs, it is rare for these tunes to be the musical focus of Nu-jazz recordings.
