Tudo Ben: Jorge Ben Covered - CD

Artist: Various Artists

Price - £8.99

The writer of Mas Que Nada, covered by the likes of Sergio Mendes, Ella Fitzgerald, Dizzy Gillespie and Al Jarreau, and Taj Mahal - the source of inspiration for Rod Stewart's 'Do You Think I'm Sexy?', Ben is a enormous force in Brazilian popular music.

Often described as the James Brown of Brazilian music due to his prolific output, he is the most sampled Brazilian artist ever with artists from The Black Eyed Peas to DJ Markylifting elements off his tracks.

His song catalogue has also been covered by some of the finest bands in Brazil. This selection represents some of the more dance-floor orientated interpretations including mega rarities such as Cosa Nostra by Os Mutreteiros Grilados and tracks that even Ben himself never got around to singing like Rei Do Maracatu's Cyro Aguiar.
