Back in 1974 Stephane Grappelli and Baden Powell recorded a bossa nova album. It's a great combination, and Steph sounds like he's been playing that style all his life. The French jazz rhythm section performs adequately, but I suspect that the album would have been even better if recorded with Powell's Brazilian band.
As for the "lounge" type of bossa, I've heard that there was a very funny parody on Saturday Night Live, many years ago, of a lounge band doing a bossa version of the Stones' "Satisfaction."

You hit on the head, "catchy melodic hooks and passion" make for good bossa, viz. Ike Quebec's "Soul Samba".
