One of the greatest compilations of Brazilian music you could ever hope to buy – a brilliant selection of classic tunes, put together by DJs Gilles Peterson & Joe Davis as an introduction to the rich sounds of Brazil! The scope is amazing – a real blend of numbers that represent the best that Brazil has to offer, and which goes past the usual bossa-heavy type of compilation you'd find in the US. Here, the grooves know no boundaries – and run from jazzy, to baroque, to funky, breezy, folksy, and beyond. Many of the tracks on the set have still not been reissued in any other form, and even though the compilation's nearly a decade old, it's still one of the first we'd recommend to anyone wanting a great set of Brazilian music! Titles include "Birimbau" by Dom Um Romao, "Vera Cruz" by Milton Nascimento, "After Sunrise" by Sergio Mendes & Brasil 77, "Roda" by Gilberto Gil, "Solo" by Meirelles E Os Copa 5, "Crickets
Sing For Anamaria" by Marcos Valle, "Blues A Volante" by Baden Powell, "Adam Adam" by Joyce, "Tamba" by Tamba Trio, "Upa Neguinho" by Edu Lobo, "Tudo Tom" by Joao Donato, and "Vidigal" by Marcos Resende & Index. 16 cuts in all – and an essential set!
