A really joyous musical celebration – filled with the kind of festive energy that May Day brings in other scenes around the world! The crow's enthusiasm is right up front in the mix – which seems to spur on even bolder performances from the artists than we're used to hearing on records from around this time – tremendous work that really tops their studio sides from the same period, with runaway energy that we never would have expected! Gal Costa really shines on the cuts "Balance" and "Aquarela Do Brasil" – and other tracks include "Imbalanca" and "Coisa Mais Maior De Grande" by Gonzaguinha, "Alguem Me Avisou" and "Sorriso Negro" by Dona Ivone Lara, "A Chuva Cai" and "Andance" by Beth Carvalho, and "Asa Branca" and "Luar Do Sertao" by Luiz Gonzaga.  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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
