Brazil 45, number 29:
A. Dom Salvador - Barumba / AA. Osmar Milito - Morre o Burro, Fica o Homem
We have released several of Brazilian jazz legend Dom Salvador’s records on Mr Bongo. He worked with artists including as Elis Regina, Jorge Ben and Edu Lobo and led Salvador Trio, as well as releasing under his own name. Dom lives in New York and plays a Hotel piano bar daily.
‘Barumba’ is an uptempo funk-jazz monster with heavy drums and piano right from the off. Soaring horns add to the drama.
Originally released on his self titled LP on CBS Brazil in 1974.
Morre o burro, Fica o Homem is the third Osmar Milito track to feature in our Brazil 45’s series. A classic samba-rock track; funk drums fills and punchy horns underpin the MPB vocals, building in tempo slightly over the track. The song was originally written by Jorge Ben.
Taken from his expensive and hard to find ‘Nem Paletó, Nem Gravata’ LP released on ATCO Brazil in 1973.
