Pais Tropical

LP (Item 9745) A&M, 1971 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.60 2

A great album from the early 70s – one that has Sergio and crew doing Brazilian tracks with a bit of an LA studio feel – one that takes their older bossa groove into even more soulful territory! Dave Grusin and Tom Scott did the arrangements, both in the best styles of their key early work – which means that things are tight, but never to slick or overpolished. The album's a real standout gem that links together 2 different period's of Sergio's career – and titles include wonderful versions of "Asa Branca" and "Zanzibar", plus a version of "Pais Tropical", done here in one of the best versions we've ever heard! Other tracks include "So Many People", "Gone Forever", "I Know You", "After Midnight", "Morro Velho" and "Tonga". (In the original fold-over cover.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Daybreak, 1972. Near Mint-
Sweet keyboard genius from the legendary Manfredo Fest – an early 70s effort that's got a really wonderful groove! The style here is a bit like some of the best CTI recordings during their early years with A&M – kind of an update of 60s bossa that features full, warm, jazzy ... LP, Vinyl record album

Flying Dutchman, 1973. Very Good Gatefold
One of Gato Barbieri's better albums from the early 70s – and like his other Latin-themed sessions, a swirling mix of soulful soloing, modal grooves, and unbridled emotion!
