        You guys would love Jobim then I don't know much about jazz, really, not even the accessible kind. El DeBarge did a nice rendition of "Dindi". I wonder how many versions there're and who did the original one.

            Jobim's a composer. Father of Bossa Nova. He did The Girl from Ipanema! Go google. I saw Gilberto's name aongside him under one of the webbies.

                        I'm a huge fan of jazz and bossa nova too. I also love some urban groove and acid jazz.

                        I love Stacey Kent. One of my fav songs is "So Nice".

                        I also love Jimmy Sommers. He plays the saxaphone and I've never heard anything like that which makes me groove along with the music even when I'm sitting down If you're a fan of smooth jazz, you'll like this.
                        My fav. album is this 360 Urban Groove. My all time fav. track is Lowdown.

                            Hi Fresia,

                            I usually go to Gramaphone to get my CDs too, because their prices are low, and they?ve got pretty good selection!

                            Yesterday, I was surfing around Jimmy Sommers website and you can listen to clips and see his performances. I?m soooo?awed?I wished I have the chance to watch him perform live. Ok and I didn?t know he was voted 50 top eligible bachelors too. You got to watch his performance, hopefully you have quicktime installed on your PC.

                              My bedroom. Just dim the lights, and put on a Bossa Nova CD. The best way to chill!
