BossaToo (2015)

BOSSAtoo placed #2 on the CMJ Jazz TOP 5 Add Chart, debuted at #35, then peaked at #26 on the CMJ Jazz Charts. BOSSAtoo is enjoying extensive national and international radio play. BOSSAtoo is available on iTunes, and other fine retailers.

"Writing this album was pure joy. Why BOSSAtoo? It’s not #2 as in the second bossa album to follow bossanovafied, but Bossa (also) to include the range of styles within Brazilian music. I loved the challenge of exploring the range within the Brazilian context. I worked to write variations on Samba (3/4 and classic 4/4), Afoxê, Partido Alto, Baião and Bossa Nova. These song really stretched my writing and my guitar playing. I hope you enjoy listening to BOSSAtoo as much as we enjoyed creating it!" - Kristine Mills  - October 2015

Kristine Mills’ talent for songwriting goes well beyond that realm. She is a fine writer of The Song, an even better writer of The Ballad and best of all she writes a compelling narrative. In short, Mills may be considered a complete musician. Songs such as Breathe Your Kiss, Not Waiting for Maybe and Burden of Choice prove this beyond the shred of a doubt.”
