Lovely second release from Brighton's Hive Mind Records sees the release of 'Congo', the debut album from Brazilian guitarist and composer Rodrigo Tavares. The LP features nine hypnotic instrumentals, which blend composition and improvisation with subtle, experimental yet sophisticated arrangements that nod in to classic the likes of João Gilberto, Dorival Caymmi, Tom Jobim, Milton Nascimento and Caetano Veloso.
Housed in a beautiful gatefold sleeve designed by Brazilian graphic artist Andrea Gomes, featuring the original painting by Brazilian artist Cristiano Lenhardt.
