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.

A beautiful set in a beautiful setting – Bebel Gilberto in Rio, sounding even warmer and more soulful than ever before! The album's got a depth that goes beyond some of the simple bossa-rework of Gilberto's earliest record, and a maturity that even goes past recent work, too – a factor ... CD

Mr Bongo (UK), 2014. New Copy
Beat-heavy Brazilian work from Karol Conka – a set that's got some of the same urban vibe of the baile beat work of a few years back, but which also focuses the energy into a tighter, more compact R&B groove! Karol rhymes her way along the groove, but at a pace that's a bit more laidback ... CD
