It was really a treat listening this album and also a little bit confusing. The main performer is Nick Ayoub, but at a first sight, it seems we have a record made by a duo, Rosita and Deno. The story is delicious and is all about a promotion, everyone who bought this album could take the back cover to one of Rosita and Deno dancing schools and claim 2 free Bossa Nova lessons. Fascinating. Buy the album, hear the music and get 2 free dancing classes with Rosita & Deno.
This is Nick Ayoub - Bossa Nova Jazz Samba (1962), for Trans Canada Music Company, a wonderful instrumental album featuring Niki Ayoube and his orchestra. Personnel is not credited but we have top-notch musicians at this set. The repertoire is also unusual with music that seems to be composed only for this album. I never danced in my life and if I were in Canada by that time, the story of my life could be different with Nick Ayoube and Rosita & Deno, only Caetano to bring such wonderful discoveries to Loronix. Tracks include:
01 - Canadian Bossa Nova
02 - Prelude to Bossa Nova
03 - Nick's Nova
04 - Gella Nova
05 - New One
06 - Aureles
07 - Bossa Me
08 - Bossa Nova Orientale
09 - Bossa Sway
10 - Jazz me In
11 - Bossa Nova Nr. 12
12 - Samba Basque
Canada is the country number 10 in terms of visitors sent to Loronix last year. Most of Canadian users came from Toronto and Montreal, sharing together more than 50% of visits. It is fantastic to see that more than one hundred Canadian cities had been at Loronix.
I do not have any Canadian Loronix friend to say thanks, except Rowan, which is a Brazilian living in Canada. I would like to say thanks to all Canadian Loronix and I hope you continue supporting our community in the forthcoming year.
Do not miss Caetano's music to Canada, truly awesome.

Zeca and Caetano it is fine. I like this Saxosound-sounds very cool -and great soundquality!
Really fantastic what fine brazilian influenced albums were made outside of Brazil. With a teacher like Caetano I really like to go back to first class and to learn makes a lot of fun --))
Thanks Caetano and greetings to all Loronixers from Canada

I'll be your Canadian friend Zeca! I live in Brantford, Ontario, about 160km SW of Toronto. I visit your site every day and it has been a huge influence on me. I was wracking my brains trying to think of a Canadian Bossa Nova record that you could post, but I came up with nothing. I'm glad you found something great.
I'm happy Canada is in your top ten.

I'm your pal too, Zeca. Thanks for the post and the postcard view of my town, Toronto. Nick Ayoub appears on each of the two "Ready or Not" compilations of Canadian jazz from the '60s and '70s on Do Right Music (http://dorightmusic.com). There's also a brief biography on him here:
Obrigado pela internacionalidade!

Great! Now I have a Canadian Friend.
Thanks a lot!
Caetano found this really great album to Canada, don't worry, maybe Canadian Bossa Nova albums were released in the 60's and are out of print right now.
I hope that someone from our community come up with additional ones.
Have a nice day.

Thanks for the info on Niki Ayoube, this album is really above the average and makes us feel curious to see other Niki works.
You are already my pal!
Skipper Bartlett on Thursday, 31 May, 2007I've scoured my collection and found one LP - "We Gotta Get It All Together" by Jimmy Namaro, A jazz funk musician from Canada. There is one song on the album So Danco Samba, played by Jimmy Namaro and his group and sung by a Romanian woman named Aura. If you are interested, I could put it on my computer this weekend and email you an mp3.
