One of the greatest collections of work we've ever seen from Quarteto Em Cy – a CD that features their entire Som Definitivo album from 1964, plus 18 more bonus tracks pulled from two other albums! Som Definitivo is an incredible album – one in which the Brazilian female harmony quartet meets up with their male counterparts, the Tamba Trio! The gals have most of the vocals on this set, but backings are in the sublimely modern mode that the Tamba combo was using at the time, set to arrangements by Luiz Eca, the group's pianist – and soaring with a great blend of jazz and bossa elements! The whole thing's a landmark in the Brazilian scene of the time – with edges that are dark and sweet at the same time – and a depth of sound that's really tremendous. Titles include "O Mar E Meu Chao", "Se Voce Pensar", "Imagem", "Zambi", "Arrastao", and "Vim Da Bahia". Bonus tracks on the set are pulled from the 1964 and 1966 albums titled Quarteto Em Cy – also issued on Elenco – and titles include "O Trem", "Barravento", "Nana", "Vida Ruim", "Mascarada", "Resolucao", "Caminho Do Mar", "Canto De Ossanha", "Samba Torto", "Ate Londres", and "Pedro Pedreiro".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
