On The Atomic Age Cocktail Party time week, we're feeling the bossa nova heat. We talk about how this new style made its way from Brazil to the US and along the way became a musical craze of the 1960s. We have lots of tunes from the greats like Antonio Carlos Jobim, Stan Getz & João Gilberto, and Walter Wanderley. Plus many other lounge performers who were part of bossa nova movement.
