Odeon/Mr Bongo (UK), Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Claudia turns in a wonderful groove here – a Brazilian jazz track with this cool compressed piano at the beginning, which sets a melodic tune, then makes room for fuller orchestrations to slide in with the rhythms and the vocals!

Karol ConkaBatukfreak ... CD
Mr Bongo (UK), 2014. New Copy ... $15.99
Beat-heavy Brazilian work from Karol Conka – a set that's got some of the same urban vibe of the baile beat work of a few years back, but which also focuses the energy into a tighter, more compact R&B groove!

Killer funky soul from Brazil!

A gem of a record from the same Pernambuco early 70s scene that gave us Lula Cortes, Ze Ramalho, Geraldo Azevedo, and Alceu Valenca!
