Brasilian Sound ... LP CBS/Le Tres Jazz Club (France), Mid 60s. New Copy (reissue)...
Groovy groovy groovy! LesMasques were a 60s vocal-oriented Brazilian combo from France, and they had a tight jazzy approach that was similar to Sergio Mendes and Brazil 66! That alone would be enough to make them #1 in our book – but they also get some excellent backing from the TrioCamara, who back the band with some nice organy riffs, and a very tight rhythm section! The whole thing's a great lost bit of Braziliana – with that crossover sound that you'll hear on the best 60s and 70s European recordings of this sort. Includes the great groover "Il Faut Tenir", which has shown up on a few compilations over the years – plus "Mais Un Jour", "Enfer", "Echo", "Un Regard .. Un Sourire", "L'Oiseau", and "Les Filles et Les Garcons". LP, Vinyl record album
