Excellent work from this genius Brazilian keyboard player and arranger! The set's part of the National Arts Foundation "Brazilian Popular Music" series – but is a version of the album Feito Em
Casa. Antonio Adolfo's probably best known for his mad work for EMI/
Odeon at the start of the 70s, but by this point in the decade, he'd mellowed out a bit, and was focusing on more serious jazz-based recordings – most of which were issued only briefly on the tiny label Artezanal. This rare session features Adolfo on moog, Hammond, and Arp – working with a group that includes Marcio Montarroyos on trumpet, Danilo Caymmi on flute, and some guest vocals by Joyce on one track! The overall sound is electric, but not cloyingly so – a mix of breezy, jazzy, and funky styles that really fit together superbly. Titles include "Chickote", "Venice", "Acalanto", "Feito Em
Casa", "Ve", "Virry", "Variacoes", "Beijinho", "Dia De Paz", and "As Luzes Estao Brilhando".
(Cover has one slightly bumped corner, but is great overall.)
