George Duke is a true pioneer in this field of music, latin fusion. He embrasess each tune with a new approach and is a master of rhythmic displacement. The opening tune Brazilian Love Affair has to be the centre piece for this cd. It's combines a mellow chorus which makes you feel as though you were in the heart of Rio! and also combines great solos from bass and one from George himself playing the Fender Rhodes Piano. (very Groovy). He encompasses everything that I like about latin music, great melodys/harmonic diversity/outstanding solos/and a really solid rhythm section featuring the percussion legend 'Airto'.
The other tunes are equally as progressive as Brazilian love affair, most noteably 'Brazilian Sugar' which has a great synth/moog solo from George. I seriously suggest that anyone who likes a latin flavour in their cocktail of musical taste should buy this CD. It seriously has made my Winter Blues a whole lot brighter.

I've owned this album for more than 20 years, first on vinyl and now on CD, and in all those years it's always put a smile on my face when I've played it. From the minute the agogo bells kick in on track 1, I'm transported to somewhere that's hot, sunny and full of beautiful people.....
Standout tracks include the opener, "Brazilian Love Affair", which features an awesome Rhodes solo on the out chorus, perfectly matched by some classic 70s string-synth. Other favourites are "Brazilian Sugar" and "Sugar Loaf Mountain", which has some of the sweetest rhythm guitar playing you'll ever hear.
But having said that, there's really not a weak track on the album. Put a little Brazilian sunshine in your life and add this to your collection - you won't be disappointed.

9 songs on this album are absolutely fantastic. The last 2 tracks on the album don't seem to fit but do not detract from what is essentially a fantastic brazilian jazz funk album. It is bordering on cheesy, but that adds to the feel-good factor of the album. You can picture yourself lying on a beach or on a sunbed in a hot country listening to this album until the sun comes down.

The title track was used as a sample for a soulful house tune by Todd Gardner back in 2003 and it wasn't until a few months ago when I found this track on Last FM that I realised what it was. Worth the price of the CD alone. But there are a couple of tracks in this album which just fill me with so much joy - Brazilian Sugar and I Need You Now. George Duke is a master of melody and this album is the perfect tonic for the winter blues or the soundtrack of your summer. Buy it!

For me this album was/is both groundbreaking and a revelation.I fell in love with the title track when it was released way back when and was a firm floor filler in clubs across the UK.
The rest of the album creates a wonderful summer laid back latin jazz atmosphere.As the other reviewer implied,close your eyes with this on an ipod and you reasly can feel the sun on your face just like on a beach in Rio.
Opened my eyes to latin jazz-followed up by checking Stan Getz/Astrud Gilberto, Gilberto Gil and Djavan etc. etc. Who I would not have enjoyed if I had not got into this album.Musical thanks George!

A very good cd, which was purchased as an LP in the 80's and almost warn out.... The contents of the CD represent a great combination of Jazz and Funk with a latin twist. Musically George Duke is a superb practitioner of contemporary Jazz. In reading the sleeve notes there is commentary on how the album was produced through bringing together international musicians as a collaboration within Brazil, this is what perhaps makes the album unique. It is well worth the purchase.

What a lovely album. Something of a concept album where Mr Duke musically explores Brazil,this album has it all: Disco, Latin jazz, Jazz Fusion, and even a bit of folk (but dont let that put you off!)but funky and massively cool. Give your wife it for her zumba class... she'll soon get slim, and she'll love you more & more for the gift ;) A classic album that doesn't seem to date; maturing like a fine wine. This has now been re-released by Columbia-Jazz, tidied up and given the digital re-mastering trick. There's not a bad song on the album, unless youre not keen on Brazilian Folk (the last track). Enjoy... it really is a superb album thoroughly deserving of five-stars.
