Luiz Bonfa

LP (Item 48707) Dot, Mid 60s — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


5.00 2

A pretty great little album from Bonfa – always one of the more corruptible bossa players, working here in a groovy set of pop arrangements by Deodato with a lively American twist! Some tunes are fast-driving bossa numbers with good jazz accompaniment, others have backing vocals in a wordless 60s style, and others are mellow and gentle. The best of these latter ones is "Oba Oba", which has great duet vocals by Pat Kirby and Bonfa – and other titles include "Coffee Beans", "Gentle Rain", "Batuque", "Summer Summer Wind", "Be Still", and "Love Birds".

Fontana, 1968. Very Good+
A beautiful blend of bossa and jazz – one of the few American albums cut by Luiz Henrique, and a set that features him singing in English throughout!
