One of the coolest albums ever from Brazil
ian singer Leny Andrae – a set that takes her way past the usual jazz and bossa of other records, into territory that's completely sublime! The record features arrangements from some of the most sophisticated talents of the early 70s scene in Brazil
– Arthur Verocai, Wagner Tiso, and Francis Hime – all artists who take Leny's amazing voice into territory that's spacious and majestic, but which still manages to groove – with that special sort of balance you'll find in Verocai's legendary album from the same period, and maybe on EMI/
Odeon material by artists like Marcos Valle or Edu Lobo. Maestro Gaya handles the orchestra – bringing the same incredible skill to the record he brings to other Odeon sessions – and titles include "Postal", "Alvoroco", "Moto 1", "Bolero", "Pingos De Sol", "O Lobo Na Estepe", and "Nao Adianta".
