Carter & Bodlovich
Bossa Nova ~ Samba ~ Jazz
Carter & Bodlovich specialize in the soothing tropical music native to Rio de Janeiro, the Bossa Nova
. The compositions featured on their two albums, Corcovado
and The Shadow Out Of Time
, range from Bossa Nova standards by Brazilian legends Antonio Carlos Jobim and Louis Bonfa, to Carter & Bodlovich originals that fuse such styles as Samba, Calypso, Gypsy Swing and Afro-Cuban. Their selection of music is the perfect complement to an elegant dining or cocktail experience, and is known to captivate audiences with its swaying Brazilian rhythms and lush jazz harmonies.
Guitar, an integral element of the bossa nova, is Carter & Bodlovich's instrument of choice. They are able to play their guitars in an acoustic fashion for smaller intimate settings, or amplified to satisfy any decibel preferences. They also perform as a trio with percussion and as a quartet with bass and vocals. Carter & Bodlovich stresses courtesy, professionalism and punctuality. Chopin must have had this group in mind when he said, ''The only thing more lovely than the sound of one guitar is two.''
