Rosinha De ValencaUm Violao Em Primeiro Plano ... CD
RCA (Japan), 1971. New Copy ... About July 6, 2016
A great little set from female guitarist Rosinha De Valenca – a player who worked briefly with Sergio Mendes in the mid 60s, and who sounds incredible on this rare album from 1971! Rosinha's got a light touch on the acoustic guitar – one that steps off nicely from a legacy of earlier Brazilian guitarists like Baden Powell or Luiz Bonfa – and on this set, she's backed by some light arrangements that almost have a groovy late 60s LA feel – with lots of nice lilting A&M-ish moments, touched by other spots of Brazilian grooves and funk! The blend is wonderful, and makes the record a real standout from Rosinha – a record that's more than enough to help her make her mark away from Sergio! Titles include "Asa Branca", "Summertime", "Samba De Minha Terra", "Tema Espanhol", "Boi Ta Ta", "Marinheiro", "Zanzibar", and "Mudei De idea". CD
