Ah, bossanova. You can just lose yourself to the rhythms and almost feel yourself in the tropical sands of… Sweden? Yeah, Sweden. This is one of the great things about Creative Commons. You can take vocals from one place, add in music from another, and end up with something completely new.
Released in 2007, this song is part of an album that was put together using samples from CCMixter’s Curve Music contest and original music.
We bring back an artist from Classic Sounds of the Commons for another solid jazz track. Régis V. Gronoff does it again with his 2009 album “Strange Boat, Strange Cargo” which explores the history of jazz, from bebop to modern fusion. “Dove and Eagle” is a tribute to Sonny Rollins, a legendary saxaphonist whose songs have a habit of becoming jazz standards. You can download the full album at his BandCamp page for free, though it’s name your price, so I encourage you pay a little something for the album.
