Aug 27, 2014
The eleventh and twelfth releases on our in-demand 7" re-issue imprint 'Brazil 45s' are in stock now:
A. Joao Bosco - O Ronco Da Cuica
AA. Antonio Adolfo E A Brazuca - Transamazonica
Joao Bosco - O Ronco Da Cuica
This track originally appeared on prolific guitarist Joao Bosco’s ‘Galos de Briga’ LP released in 1976 on RCA Brazil. Previously unreleased on 7”. Bosco is a prolific musician whose career spanned nearly 20 albums across 30 years.
Antonio Adolfo E A Brazuca - Transamazonica
All time classic Brazilian Jazz Fusion. Taken from the hard to find 1971 self-titled LP by Antonio Adolfo E A Brazuca on Odeon Brazil. Never before released on 7”. Adolfo was the founder of Trio 3-D and later played with Elis Regina.
A. Elza Soares - Mas Que Nada
AA. Elizabeth - Vou Falar-Lhe Francamente
Elza Soares - Mas Que Nada
Samba legend Elza Soares, as featured on Gilles Peterson’s recent Sonzeira: 'Brasil Bam Bam Bam project, covers Jorge Ben’s classic ‘Mas Que Nada’. Tougher drums and a more jazzy tone on this version make this one for the dancefloor. She is also famous for marrying the great Brazilian footballer Garrincha, who some rate as better than Pele. Originally featured on her 'Samba's & Mais Samba's' LP on Odeon from 1970.
Elizabeth - Vou Falar-Lhe Francamente
Little is known about ‘Elizabeth’. She was apparently nicknamed ‘Gatinha do Mato’ (loosely translated as ‘Jungle Kitten’…). She was involved in the ‘Jovem Guarda’ movement. We found this one at one of favourite, now defunct, spots ‘Tony’s Hits’ in Sao Paulo. The record was originally released on 7” on RGE in 1970.
