Jan Gotz'z blog, which specialises in Eurovision cover versions, announces the release of Bossavision, a collection of Eurocovers in Bossanova-lite style by Brasilian singers. It's a Greek project (hence the large number of Greek entries) coordinated by Easy Coutiel & Nektarios Tyrakis, the later being the lyricist if Shake It (Greece 2004) and Love Me Tonight (Belarus 2005).

"The laid back bossa collection is a bit monotonous at times, but it's the perfect soundtrack for a romantic night on the beach or dinner party with the neighbours” Jan Götz writes, on his personal blog. The CD is released in Greece on Mercury/Universal and is available locally and internationally.
