Album Notes
Authentic Bossa Nova sung in English and Portuguese by an artist with an extensive backround in foreign languages and residence abroad as a youth. A solo performance of Spanish guitar and voice; all of the smooth passion of the Bossa Nova's cool attitude comes through in this live atmosphere. Even the classic Cole Porter standard, 'I've Got You Under My Skin' sounds as Brasilian as a well worn samba.

"Most recently a live recording from April 30, 2005 at The Walnut Room in Denver, Colorado called ‘BossaNovaNights’. It is all bossa nova and features two studio cuts at the end from my ‘Paulo’ period, circa 2000. This in response to many requests for a bossa nova recording. It is of good quality and performance and features my 2003 Kenneth Scott Lofquist Spanish guitar." © 2005 and 2000 Cottonwood Shade Recordings

"Hello, again. I keep remembering info about these recordings that might interest some of you. The guitar used on the two studio tracks (Bossa de Janeiro and Depois) is a 1918 Martin parlor guitar, Model 1 Style 18 with gut strings. Enjoy."

Bossa Nova at its Best
I'm sitting on a beach in Brazil and... NO wait I'm in my living room listening to Calvin Buckles. This is great stuff.


Pour a stiff drink, sit back and relax
Relaxing music as only Calvin can deliver. Sit back in your favorite chair, sip the vino or whatever and rejuvenate.



soothing sounds of an amazing language mixed with classical guitar
Listening to these tunes takes one on a journey aross the globe.
To a place of peace, tranquility, and love.


Fantastic mastery of voice and guitar
Calvin has mastered the art of playing romantic Bossa Nova in his own unique way. A real find!


Really like the syncopation and heart found in this dose of Calvin's music. So wonderful to listen to.


. . . as romantic and inviting as a weekend in Rio!
Calvin's delivery is clean and uncluttered.
This recording is the next best thing to hearing him live;
you almost feel like your are right there with him.
The sound is as romantic and inviting as a
weekend in Rio!

Smooth, sexy, alive, heart-felt
Calvin makes me feel like he's playing these songs just for me. His voice, especially the Portuguese, is terribly smooth. Only suggestion I have is for a better balance between the guitar and vocals, a mix that would ground the breathy, sexy voice that defines this recording.

Scott Gilliom
