Daily Telegraph Review,
This review is from: Mr. Bongo's Brazilian Beats - 8CD Boxset (Audio CD)
From spaced-out percussion jams and old-school piano sambas to bossa-flavoured house and heated baile funk, this eight-volume odyssey through Brazil's many styles offers a master class in the country's dance culture.
The sultry growl of Seu jorge and the basso profundo of the veteran Trio Mocoto are among the featured voices, but this is a series that belongs to the dancefloor rather than to individual stars. And while many classic series offer overview compilations, this gives you the WHOLE of Mr. Bongo's Brazilian Beats for little more than the price of a single album. [Mark Hudson]
