Brazilian guitarist and composer Luiz Bonfa became world famous for his contributions to the soundtrack of the 1959 film Black Orpheus. He was one of the originators of the bossa nova sound and one of the greatest masters of Brazilian music popular of the 20th century. Even Elvis Presley recorded one of his songs! Luiz Bonfa Plays And Sings Bossa Nova, a classic of the genre from 1962, is notable for its romantic orchestrations by Lalo Schifrin, but there are also stripped down, acoustic numbers that showcase Bonfa’s musical virtuosity and subtlety. Also features fellow bossa nova pioneer Oscar Castro-Neves on guitar and keyboards and vocalist Maria Helena Toledo on several songs.
