A great idea for a compilation – older Brazilian grooves re-done by a collective of younger artists! The choice of tunes is impeccable – and tracks include tunes first made
famous by the likes of Marcos Valle, Lo Borges, Joyce, Kitty Winter, Sergio Mendes, and others – all performed by a core group of musicians who work the grooves with
loads of jazzy touches! Instrumentation includes keyboards, flute, and guitar – and all tracks have vocals from a rotating array of singers that include Ive Mendes, Lisa Brown, and Victor
ia Newton. The whole thing's great – as wonderful (perhaps more so) as any recent projects of this nature from Far Out or Mr Bongo – with
titles that include "Mentira", "O Trem Azul", "Tarde Em Itapoan", "The Real Thing", "Brazil Night", "Feminina", and "Three Angels".
