Tamba 4 (LP sleeve edition)

CD (Item 469980) Orfeon (Mexico), 1970 — Condition: New Copy
Out Of Stock

CD


4.50 2

Groovy bossa gems from Tamba 4 – released in 1970 on Mexico's Orfeon label! This self-titled set is really kind of a rare footnote to the legendary couple of albums the group cut a bit earlier for A&M – but a wonderful one that's more geared towards uptempo bossa jazz than the more measured jazzy groove of the A&M work! The circumstances for the recording are a bit ambiguous, but it has the masterful pianist Laercio De Freitas stepping into the group in place of founder Luiz Eca – and the overall sound is tighter – with incredible vocal harmonies, piano and percussion loud in the mix. They choose tunes penned by Jorge Ben, Antonio Adolfo & Tiberio Gaspar, Cassiano, Milton Nasciemento and others – including "Pais Tropical", "Samarina", "Sem Voce En Nao Vivo", "Pensando", "Zazueira", "Correnteza", "Se Voce Pensa", "Juliana", "Lenga-Lenga", "Veracruz" and more. (Comes a great little LP style sleeve!)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
