Samba E Violao

CD (Item 585411) London/Think (Japan), 1967 — Condition: New Copy
Out Of Stock


4.80 2

Samba and guitar – served up in a really warm and wonderful blend from Neco – a player who never made it big on our shores, but who can play the acoustic guitar in the same best 60s modes as Baden Powell! The session is nice and spare – mostly just light percussion, plus an occasional flute – all dancing in a sweet little groove, and setting up a perfect sort of pattern for Neco's inventive solos on guitar – more than rhythmic enough on their own to swing even without any backings! There's a nice sort of understatement here, but a good deal of complexity too – especially when Neco surprises us by bringing in some jazz-based changes at just the right moments. Titles include "Upa Neguinho", "Samba Do Aviao", "Ole Ola", "Nao Tenho Lagrimas", "Apelo", and "Agora E Onza".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
