Brazil 45, number 57:
A. Célia – Zozoi / AA. Célia – Para Lennon e McCartney
‘Zózoio – Como É Que É’ also known as ‘Zozoi’ is an uptempo samba-jazz-MPB workout with a catchy chorus hook, guitars, subtle driving percussion and big horns.
The song was written by Joyce’s husband Nelson Angelo. The track appears on Celia’s first self-titled LP that was released on Continental in 1971 and remains hard to find. We are also big fans of France Gall’s more well-known version, which was reissued by Jazzman several years ago. Featuring slightly different lyrics, in French, by her husband Robert Gall.
‘Para Lennon e McCartney’ comes from the same Celia LP – a soaring anthem with big horns, vocals and tough funk drums underneath. Written by Márcio & Lô Borges and Fernando Brant.
