To summarise, ‘Quiet Nights’ is a beautifully written song filled with Scott’s soft lead vocal, sweeping melodies and skilled musicians to capture the real essence of the Bossa Nova. From a visual perspective, as the stunning Samba dancers move around the stunning Malibu backdrop it is clear that Zoe Scott had the goal of sharing the talents of both the on-screen and off-screen crews with the world in this video and she has certainly achieved that.

She’s been called a “force of nature” by the LA Music Awards, which, in 2010, awarded the former Brit—now U.S. citizen—with best album and best single for her recording “Woman On Top.”... The album, recorded in Rio de Janiero, features lush string arrangements and includes Bossa Nova standards as well as pop and rock tunes reimagined in the Brazilian jazz style.

The track was produced by Moogie Canazio who is known for his all-analog recording style and he was able to her ‘feel’ her way into the silky, hushed vocal attributes. It is a combination of Scott’s sense of vulnerability united with Canazio’s production skills and first-class musicianship that ‘Quiet Nights’ is the powerful song presented to the listener. Watson herself even admitted “I cried when I heard it mixed.”

One of the standout tracks is Zoe's reimagining of Antonio Carlos Jobim's Quiet Nights of Quiet Stars (Corcovado) and I am really enjoying this version. Zoe's smooth and sensual vocals instantly command the listener's attention and they soar beautifully over the laid-back and sensula Bossa Nova production. If you're into chill pieces of Bossa Nova that ooze sensuality and an overall feel-good atmosphere, then you'll love Quiet Nights.
