Product Description

• Edu Lobo... One of the leaders of Brasil's TROPICALIA movement along with the immortal Jorge Ben; songwriter and singer of distinction - composing both music of startling innovation AND songs which became worldwide standards, following the template laid down by Ben.

• By 1970 it had become expedient for Lobo and his wife, Wanda de Sah, to leave Brasil and seek refuge in the US, where they took part in assorted jazz recordings and their friend Sergio Mendes produced Lobo's first album released outside Brasil for the amazing A&M label!

• Featuring the cream of the A&M sounders, with the Brasil '66 rhythm section led by Airto Moreira to the fore this is a simply astonishing and assured leap into new territory, with English lyrics on some songs by Herb Alpert's wife, former Brasil '66 singer Lani Hall, and startling Jazz/Tropicalia vocal arrangements by Sergio Mendes' wife Gracinha Leporace; , it's a hell of a debut but outside Brasil, that's what it was!

• From his shimmering 5th Dimension-like ‘Crystal Illusions’, translated by lani Hall and a hit for Brasil '66, to his standard ‘To Say Goodbye’, a hit for oh so many people, to his jazz/Tropicalia/A&M Sound transfomation of The Beatles ‘Hey Jude’, the album is just perfect! The spirit of Brasil and the A&M SOUND meet head on...and the result is sheer pleasure! • Exquisitely remastered in classic Rev-ola style and wonderfully packaged with not only the original sleevenote by famed critic Leonard Feather, but brand new notes by Duglas T. Stewart, BMX Bandit, BBC producer, and world renowned connoisseur of all things musically Brasilian.

• Edu Lobo was and is one the most important figures in Brasilian music, instrumental along with Jorge Ben and others in taking forward Bossa Nova to Tropicalia and beyond...!

Thanks, Verve, for reissuing a lost treasure 26 Mar 2000
By J. B Brent - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
SERGIO MENDES PRESENTS (Edu) LOBO was released as A&M SP 3035 in 1970, and up until now has only been available on CD as a Japan import. Let's hope Verve will keep reissuing those vintage A&M and A&M-CTI jazz titles we all love and miss! On this set Lobo combines a gentle vocal style with vigorous guitar playing, performing his compositions whose versions by other artists are more well known: "Crystal Illusions," "Casa Forte" and "To Say Goodbye" can be heard on Sergio Mendes and Brasil '66 albums. "Ponteio" has been recorded by Walter Wanderley. Paul Desmond also recorded "To Say Goodbye." And J.J.Johnson & Kai Winding recorded "Casa Forte." In fact, three members of Brasil '66 participated on Lobo's album, Oscar Castro-Neves (guitar), Sebastiao Neto (bass) and Claudio Slon (drums). Other strong contributors are Airto Moreira (percussion) and Ermeto Pascoal (piano/flute). All tracts are strong, although some might not care for "Hey Jude," which is somewhat dated. Relax and enjoy -- while you e-mail Verve's website and encourage them to keep the vintage A&M jazz coming!

An Exotic Adventure! 11 Aug 2001
By W. J. Bernardi - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I have just recently started getting into Brazilian music, and this album is one of the resaons why. The pulsating beats, exotic rhythms and flowing melodies are something to behold here. All of the tracks are great, but my favorites were "Zanzibar", "Crystal Illusion" (a very trance-like song), "Casa Forte" and "Jangada". Even Lobo's version of "Hey Jude" is engaging. If I wanted to turn someone on to Brazilian music, I would start with this album. It's that good.

Edu Lobo: A Genius 11 Sep 2001
By Tombolino - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
If you are shopping for light bossa Jobim style, this is not the album you want. On the other hand, if you have ever dug Egberto Gismonti, Gil Evans, Milton...meaning, something different,innovative, a little dissonance, you must get this album. Hermeto Pascoal's intervention is also amazing

Rich Brazilian Bossa/Jazz/Funk 4 Oct 2002
By Rob Keil - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Great collection of beautiful songs arranged with so much interesting percussion, electric piano, and acoustic guitar that you could listen to this all day and never hear everything built into these tracks. Great vocals too but these are always balanced just right with the orchestra. This is probably the best album of dozens I have bought this year. If you like this you may also like Astrud Gilberto's "Gilberto with Turrentine". I wish I could find more music like this.

Wonderful old songs from the 70s and later. Mellow but powerful singing. A must for any Brazilian music collection
