Resolved Question: Good bossa nova Artists /
I of course know of Jobim, Gilberto, Getz, and Astrud. However I don't know what songs by each of those artists are good because it seems as if they all sing the same songs. I like Jobim but I like Gilberto's simplistic style a little more so hopefully that will help narrow the suggestions. I have wave by Jobim and I of course have desefinado and the girl from ipanema so those answers are eliminated lol. Any Recommendations would be awesome.
