A nice 14 track sampler of the best work by Brazilian soul singer Tim Maia from the early 1970s through the early 1980s.

Barclay/Dynamite Cuts (UK), 1975. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... $15.99
A gem of an early record from Tania Maria – one in which she takes on the Jorge Ben tune "Fio Maravilha", but with funky drums that make things sound way different than the original – as do her tremendous scatting vocals, and jazzy piano she adds to the groove!
