From 1980, Recife, Brazil: ‘crazed ethno folkrock; magical, gentle, jungle folk psych zones; hard-hitting, coke-dusted fuzz rock; insane mutant disco dancefloor groove; tweaked Americana; acid vocal raga trance.’
A lost Brazilian classic from 1975, hideously rare. A seamless blend of Tropicalia, laid back latin, jazz, fried psych and South American tribal sounds — in four stunning suites. A beauty!
Magnificent survey of his seventies hey-day — a striking, tasty brew of Afro-Caribbean jazz, funk, soul, stoned rock and samba — warmly recommended. The father of Brazilian soul.
‘A mix of Elis Regina and Tania Maria’ — anyway, brilliant — backed by Azymuth.
The Brasil 77 cover of Stevie Wonder — with Mozambique on the flip.
With tremendous ambition, showcasing the music of all three, live with full orchestras. Mulatu versus Phil Ranelin and Bennie Maupin; Dilla featuring Bilal and Dwele; Verocai doing over his 1972 masterpiece.
