You gotta hand it to these guys – releasing 2 albums at nearly the same time, yet somehow managing to come across sounding nice and fresh! Unlike the Ipanema Lounge album (issued weeks before this one), Uma Batida Diferente has a style that's much more in keeping with the group's earlier sessions for Six Degrees – an updating of classic bossa styles through clever use of modern rhythms and electronics – in a mode that really respects its roots, yet still offers up something new. As part of the old/new diad that drives the group, they're working here with classic bossa talents Marcos Valle, Orlandivo, and Roberto Menescal (father of one of the group's members) – plus more current artists Celso Fonseca and Zuco 103. Titles include "Bom Dia Rio", "Samba Da Minha Terra", "Previsao", "Queria", "Just A Samba", "Bonita", and "Vai Levando". (Barcode has some marker.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
