Os Brazoes

LP, Vinyl record album


4.70 2

A tripped-out batch of tracks from Brazil! These guys mix together a bit of funk, a bit of psych, and touches of Jorge Ben-like soul – into a blend that's really groovy all the way through, and which will be sure to please any fan of the Samba Soul groove! Jorge Ben's influence is all over the set – filtered through some garagey production that makes the tracks sound rawer than any of Ben's own work, and which give the guitars a nice fuzzed out edge. The whole thing's almost psychedelic at times, but has a fair bit of soul as well – and titles include "Gotham City", "Que Maravilha", "Carolina, Carol Bela", "Modulo Lunar", "Volkswagen Blue", "Feitico", "Espiral", and "Momento B/8".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Odeon/Light In The Attic, 1970. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
Some of the most brilliantly baroque work ever recorded by Marcos Valle – an obscure 1970 album that collects together tunes from a few of his odd soundtrack experiments of the late 60s, plus a few others that are in a very similar vein!

Louvacao
Philips/Soul Jazz (UK), 1967. New Copy
A brilliant early moment for the young Gilberto Gil – a set recorded right before his jump into the Tropicalia movement, but with a sound that's already pretty darn unique!

Capitol, 1965. New Copy (reissue)
That's Brasil 65, not Brasil 66 – a distinction that marks a key early stage for the great Sergio Mendes – heard here on one of his first albums to mix together bossa jazz and vocals!

Bossa Tres
Audio Fidelity, 1963. New Copy (reissue)
Amazing bossa jazz from one of Brazil's best combos! The Bossa Tres were led by dynamic pianist Luis Carlos Vinhas – an incredibly strong talent who was as great an arranger as he was a piano player – and on this early session, he's at his most firey, really flowing out with tremendous ...

Luaka Bop, 1992. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)

An incredible album from the great Brazilian singer who's best known to the world for his work on Milton Nascimento's legendary Club Da Esquina album, but Lo is truly one of our favorite singers that Brazil has ever produced!

Dom Um Romao
Muse, 1973. New Copy (reissue)

Muse, 1973. New Copy (reissue)

Strut (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2 LPs
No horsing around here – as the set may well be the most compelling so far in this mighty hip series – a wicked blend of underground club from the post-disco and post-punk generation!

Buda/L'Arome (France), 1970s. New Copy
Amazing 70s recordings from Ethiopian singer Alemayehu Eshete – one of the greatest stars of the Ethiopiques series next to Mulatu!

Pacific Jazz/Heavenly Sweetness (France), 1963. New Copy
A stellar set from one of the most underrated reed players of all time – a brilliant bit of searching soul jazz, cut at a time when Curtis Amy was leaving behind his Texas roots for the new sounds of the Coltrane generation! The album's quite different than the organ and tenor dates that Amy ... LP, Vinyl record album
