Cavaleiro Andante  performed by Abilio Manoel  1970
Recommended by gregcaz [profile]

This song is simply unreal. It starts out in a kind of 4/4 samba groove with a highly prominent cuica and a funky strummed acoustic guitar chord progression before the super-catchy pizzicato-violins riff comes in, and Abilio's mellow voice singing the melody. It's sunshiney and catchy, with a bit of a haunting aftertaste, very Brazilian. I can never hear this song enough times!! Abilio Manoel is a Sao Paulo-based singer-songwriter from the late-60s-70s (still active) who wrote a few moderate hits without attaining even a Marcos Valle level of popularity. Good for Marcos, since Abilio's work would have caused me a few sleepless nights if I were him. And both on the same label, too! Abilio's stuff is hard to find, but very worth the effort.....I've already given Dusty Groove the heads-up about the CD....

from Pena Verde (Odeon)
available on CD - 20 Sucessos (EMI Brazil)

Suite Imaginaria  performed by Marcos Valle  1970
Recommended by gregcaz [profile]

An unusual Marcos track, a 9-minute instrumental suite tucked away at the end of one of his most adventurous albums. Hugely recommended to Axelrod/Electric Prunes fans, as it sounds almost exactly like something from "Release Of An Oath" or "Mass In F Minor."

from Marcos Valle (Odeon MOFB 3596), available on CD (EMI Toshiba Japan)

Stormy  performed by The Third Wave  1970
Recommended by gregcaz [profile]

Many versions of this song, but for me this is simply the ultimate. Every time I hear it I drift off into a daydream.....

from Here And Now (MPS), available on CD (Crippled Dick Hot Wax)

Fresh Air  performed by Cal Tjader  1970
Recommended by gregcaz [profile]

I could go on at length about this awesome track, but I'll just restrain myself. Let's just say that rate this song very highly in my personal Tjader pantheon, and I have around 65 Cal albums.

from Tjader (Fantasy)

Vermelho  performed by Claudette Soares  1970
Recommended by gregcaz [profile]

Perky, pint-sized bossa chanteuse Claudette Soares scored big in the late 60s by following Wilson Simonal's stylistic lead into an irresistible mix of pop, samba, French ye-ye, boogaloo, soul and bossa. This is a perfect example of the strangely Isaac Hayes-influenced arrangements to be found on her 1969-70 "pop" LP trilogy, and another winner from the then-unstoppable Adolfo-Gaspar writing team.

from Claudette No. 3 (Philips)
