Aquele Abraço  performed by Gilberto Gil  1969
Recommended by PappaWheelie [profile]

Another incredible Samba from the master.

from Gilberto Gil [1969] (Philips)
available on CD - NovaBossa (Antilles/Verve)



Hein?  performed by Tom Ze
Recommended by PappaWheelie [profile]

Experimental Samba guru finds himself saturated in intricate rhythms & lush strings while bouncing his stacatto guitar plucks.

from Brazil Classics, Vol. 4: The Best of Tom Ze - Massive Hits, available on CD (Luka Bop)



Que Pena  performed by Gal Costa  1969
Recommended by PappaWheelie [profile]

Incredible Bossa Nova inspired Tropicalia duet with Caetano Veloso. Drenched in strings & flute, everything follows the enthusiastic guitar!

from Gal Costa [Mercury #1] (Mercury)




  12 May 02 ·delicado: A superb track. I think I've neglected Gal Costa so far.
  13 May 02 ·PappaWheelie: I was blown away when I heard this song too. I had heard other Gal songs prior to this, but it was 'Que Pena' that sealed the deal for me to become a fan of hers. Let me know if I'm recommending too many songs; I'm having a really good time here :-D
  25 Jun 04 ·brasilnut: Jorge Ben composed this song. The non-stop guitar is typical of his early style. A little clip from'allbrazilian music' about him.(great site) I can't praise him enough. 'Jorge Ben Jorís music holds a unique role in the Brazilian scene, due to the merging of new elements in his swinging mix and to the way he plays the guitar, revealing his appreciation of soul music and north-American funk, yet incorporating the influence of African and Arabian music, legacy of his Ethiopian mother'
Fato Consumado  performed by Djavan  1976
Recommended by PappaWheelie [profile]

Samba do Brasil that demonstrates how 3 different lyrical rhythms can make a wonderful tapestry.

from A Voz e o Viol„o (Gala)
available on CD - Flor de Lis (Warner)



Bicho do Mato  performed by Elis Regina
Recommended by PappaWheelie [profile]

Many may already be aware of this samba due to Walter Wanderly's space-age tinged organ instrumental version, but Elis's original vocal version is far more powerful with relentless horn blasts. It also demonstrates her range of emotions put into the performance as she goes from delicate to belting.


available on CD - Samba Soul '70! (Six Degrees)




  16 Aug 06 ·ambassador: I believe the original version (by anybody) is on Jorge Ben's "Ben e Samba Bom" on philips from the mid 60s.
