Hi all, Here's a french song.
This bossa doesn't want to become a samba !
Patrick Fournerat has written the lyrics and he sings.

https://soundcloud.com/christian-devienne/bossa-legere

Here's an approximate translation :

This is a light bossa
carried by the sea breeze.
She seemed to come from afar
like a scent of sea air.

I will dance with strings
if I can tune up.
I will be a tightrope walker
on my guitar neck.
Bossa will get out of my fingers.

I found her indolent.
Her melody is mesmerizing
but something was wrong.
The tempo was too slow.

I told her, "Speed up! ".
But with her temperament,
she does not tolerate
to be compared with a samba.

Funny!

It's always cool to hear a Bossa and this is a nice collaboration.

We enjoyed it!

Nicely done smile Very well textured, and easy on the ears. Flows like water, and has a nice gentle groove. The kind of tune you can shut your eyes and lose yourself in. I like how lush and pretty it is. Loved the vocals too, and appreciate the translation.

Thanks for sharing!

Lovely arrangement. Great work with the horn solos. Patrick has the most pleasant voice. It's a pleasure to listen. The lyric is outstanding (and I think little was lost in translation). Very much enjoyed.

Hey Bossa man,

you surely do have a very good feeling for Bossa. And you have an amazing choice of RealTracks. A very smooth tune, enviting one to just sit back and feel the mood.

A very appealing tune, very well-produced, too.

Cheers,

Stefan
