4.80 2

Samba, jazz, and bossa – the three best aspects of Elis Regina's classic work – all pulled together in one lovely package that's very heavy on the grooves! If you've ever dipped into some of Regina's mellower or more emotive work and wondered where the grooves were, this is the set to check out – because it's filled with great tracks from the late 60s and early 70s that really kick things up – lots of driving percussion at the bottom of the tracks, jazzy instrumentation in the middle, and Elis' wonderful vocals soaring to the skies over the top! The set's a great introduction to the best side of her work for a newcomer, but also a great reminder of her genius for the rest of us – and the 2CD collection features a total of 28 tracks that include "Upa Neguinho", "Watch What Happens", "Voi Deitar E Rolar", "Ou Bola Ou Bulica", "Madalena", "Bala Com Bala", "Bicho Do Mato", "Samba Em Paz", "Alo Alo Tai Carmen Miranda", "Amor Ate O Fim", and "Aquele Abraco".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
