Product Description

Caetano Veloso affirmed that "Jorge Ben was not only the first great black composer since bossa nova, but more importantly, he was also the first to make his blackness a stylistic determinant." Associated with both bossa nova and Tropicalia, and the first man to play sambas on an electric guitar, on Todo Azul Jorge Ben contributes his first professional recordings; impressive versions of Por Causa de Voc Menina and his signature tune, the propulsive Mas Que Nada, his first chart-topper in Brazil, and a monster hit for Sergio Mendes, a song that has been recorded no less than two hundred times. Brazilian Scene also includes early recordings by another prominent Tropicalist, Gilberto Gil, songs from a fascinating 4 track EP originally released on JS records of Bahia. Gil defies easy classification. Over a long career, he has remained faithful to the musical diversity that was central to the creative principles of Tropicalia, that would be labeled ''cultural cannibalism''; samba, frevo, Jovem Guarda, choro, bolero, Anglo-American pop and rock an d avant-garde art music. Some other key features of this edition are the delicious performances of One Note Samba and Consolacao by Tom Jobim and Baden Powell with Herbie Mann, Radames Gnattali's exquisite Sonatina for Flute and Guitar, performed by Laurindo Almeida and Martin Ruderman.
