Brazilian Beats [Bar de Lun]

Not yet rated | write a review
Latin music specialists Mr Bongo have assembled an overwhelming compilation in BRAZILIAN BEATS. Though it's probably targeted at the advanced listener, the disc is so diverse and consistently surprising that it's just as likely to ensnare the curious Brazilian music novice too.
Beginning with a trio of remixed heavily rhythmic tracks, the listener is transported to Rio via a house party. Airto Moreira's famous "Celebration Suite" is stripped to a dancefloor cut, a deliberate nod to both past and future. While other name artists appear--Jorge Ben's Afro-groove "Carolina Carol Beta" and Milton Banana's "Cidade Vazia" are present and correct--many of the delights come in the form of lost treasures. Tenorio Jr and Trio Mocato respectively highlight the breadth in Brazilian jazz and pop, its influence on Western pop, and the foreign elements it soaks up in return. Samba, bossa, mangue, even funk, and a wealth of complex regional styles engulf the listener throughout this collection.
