“June Gloom” has now become “July Gloom” – and it’s a cold, drizzly day here. I would love nothing more than to be at home, curled up next to a fire with a chai latte in hand, listening to one of my favorite albums of all time – Bossa Nova, by Stan Getz. This first track, Corcovado, is one of the best on the album. Having been to Corcovado, I can say from experience that the song truly does bring you there.
I love the opening line “Quiet nights of quiet stars, quiet chords from my guitar, floating on the silence that surrounds us”.
I’d love to go back to Rio, but I’ll settle for listening to Bossa Nova (at least for now!).
