I haven’t announced the winner of my latest Battle of the Bands, in which two bossa nova bands, NOVA and The Irene Miranda Quartet, duked it out to see which one did a better version of Tom Jobim’s "Chega de Saudade" ("No More Blues"). The votes have (finally) been counted, and here’s what we have…
NOVA – 5
Irene Miranda Quartet – 2
Congratulations to NOVA and a pat on the back to Irene Miranda and her Quartet.
We didn’t have as many votes as we had the last two rounds. I decided to see what would happen if I didn’t pin the BotB post to the top of my blog, and evidently, that’s what happens. I’ll start doing that for my next battle, scheduled for November 1, 2021. See you then!
