Sunny, energetic sounds from Seu Jorge – the first in a what we hope will be series of Musicas Para Churrasco releases, which loosely translates, we reckon, as music to bring to a barbecue – lightly funky Brazilian soul with that gritty, charismatic, instantly identifiable voice! What's so great about this set to us, is that it's sort of set up by Seu Jorge himself as simple, fun, everyday, don't take it so seriously kinda grooves – but it's too damn good for that! The arrangements are fairly uptempo and summer-y, generally in 10 piece setting with heavy rhythms, killer percussion, guitar, brass, keys and an all around effervescent style – but this ain't no tossed off effort! On par with his best recent work. Includes "A Doida", "Meu Parceiro", "Veia", "Ole, Ole", "Japonesa", "Quem Nao Quer Sou Eu", "Vizinha", "Amiga Da Minha Mulher" and more.  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Certain Smile, Certain Sadness (UK pressing)
Verve/Rev-Ola (UK), 1966. New Copy
Kind of a dream combination in one little album – especially if you dig breezy bossa from the 60s! Back in 1966, Verve Records got the great idea of teaming up its (then) biggest Brazilian imports – vocalist Astrud Gilberto and organist Walter Wanderley – both of whom were ... CD
