4.50 2

A wonderful overview of the sound of soul music in Brazil – not the heavy beats of the booty-shaking crowd, or the mainstream R&B of the chart-toppers – but that real soul undercurrent inspired by the best work of American artists of the 60s and 70s – presented here in a great batch of classic and contemporary tracks! The package is equally weighted between the important samba soul generation of the 70s – a time when Brazilian music was really embracing American soul and funk – and work from the first decade of this century, too – made by key Brazilian artists who were going back to 70s roots, and finding new ways to re-work this wonderful blend of styles! There's a few artists here we might have missed otherwise – and the set features 18 tracks that include "Voce Vai Estar Na Minha" by Negra Li, "Colecao" by Cassiano, "Olhos Coloridos" by Sandra Sa, "Eu Nao Vou" by Fat Family, "E Descobridor Dos Sete Mares" by Tim Maia, "Vizinha" by Seu Jorge, "Oba La Vem Ela" by Jorge Ben, "As Dores Do Mundo (rmx)" by Hyldon & Bossacucanova, "Tem Espaco Na Van" by Ed Motta, "Maria Fumaca" by Banda Black Rio, and "Cuidado Com O Bulldog" by Wilson Simonal.  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Voce E Eu
Universal (Brazil), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy
Beautiful bossa by one of the first singers to really embrace the genre – the lovely Sylvia Telles, represented here by some of her best tracks from the late 50s and early 60s! Sylvia initially started as a singer with a bit more of the romantic flourishes of the postwar generation in Brazil ... CD

Agua
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2010. New Copy
We've always loved the music of Paula Morelenbaum, but this time around she's really got something special going on – thanks to keyboards and vocals from the legendary Joao Donato! Most of the tunes in the set are Donato numbers – themselves already a treat, but given a little ... CD

Universal (Brazil), 2012. New Copy
Really tremendous work from Caetano Veloso – an album as striking as its cover image, and a record that shows that, yet again, Veloso is one of the few of his generation who's kept growing as a creative artist! The sound is wonderful – very similar to the recent albums Ce and Zii & ... CD

Apresentando Rosinha De Valenca
Elenco/Universal (Japan), 1964. New Copy
The first album by Brazilian guitarist Rosinha Da Valencia – and a beautiful one at that! The record features Rosinha playing solo guitar with percussion backing, very much in the style of Baden Powell's early work, especially his own albums for the Elenco label – and as the set ... CD

Universal (Japan), 1975. New Copy
A really overlooked album from Caetano Veloso – one that's quite different than the more experimental modes of records like his Tropicalia sets, or his Araca Azul record – but with a unique charm that makes it every bit as special as those! The set's quite stripped-down and personal ... CD

Cheganca
Verve/Universal (Japan), 1966. New Copy
Bossa nova meets organ jazz – a real classic from the great Walter Wanderley, recorded right on the heels of his famous Rain Forest album for Verve! This set's in a very similar format to that one – core trio grooving with organ, bass, and drums – sometimes augmented with added ... CD

Milton Nascimento (1969)
Odeon/RPM (UK), 1969. New Copy
Maybe one of the first truly brilliant albums from Milton Nascimento – a set that builds on the excellent previous work by the singer/songwriter, but which also has him moving into much more soulful territory as well! Nascimento's work is one of the true treasures of Brazilian music of the ... CD

Clube Da Esquina
Odeon/RPM (UK), 1972. New Copy
A landmark album – and one that Milton cut with his "corner club", an elite group of musicians and songwriters from the early days of his career – including greats like Lo Borges and Wagner Tiso. Borges is particularly fantastic, and shines on the massively beautiful cut ... CD
