Som Livre/Mr Bongo (UK), 1972. New Copy
Some of the grooviest work ever cut by Brazilian trombonist Waltel Branco – a set that's very different than just about anything he ever put on record, and which is also material used in an early 70s TV series as well! The sound here is kind of a criss-cross between some of the cool ... CD

Searing samba soul from Jorge Ben – one of his best-remembered albums of the 70s, and for good reason too!
