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".

Beautiful stuff – and a record we never tire of hearing! This album's a sublime extension of the earlier Brazilian style of the Tamba Trio – in a set that has them adding a fourth member, and picking up some cool new sounds from producer Creed Taylor! The set brings the group's ... LP, Vinyl record album

Happy People
Pablo, 1979. Very Good+
Jazzy Brazilian drummer Paulinho Da Costa lays down a set of tight fusion cuts recorded in the U.S., along with folks like Larry Carlton, James Gadson, and Philip Bailey. There's vocals on about half the tracks, and the sound is sort of LA studio fusion from the 70's, with a nice bit of Brazil ... LP, Vinyl record album
