Product Description

* BGP's critically acclaimed jazz and funk classics series reaches its fourth instalment. The aim is to bring you the super-rare and usually unreissued albums on CD with notes and incredible mastering for fantastic sound. The five albums in the fourth series cover jazz, funk and soul and are all sought after by collectors.

* Brazilian trombone maestro Raul De Souza flits between jazz and funk with ease. He was a founder member of Bossa Rio with Sérgio Mendes, while his late 70s Capitol albums are jazz-funk classics that filled floors around the world. "Colors", his first US album, is a fine example of 70s Brazilian jazz fusion.

* Produced by Airto Moreira, and featuring a star-studded line up of musicians including Cannonball Adderley, Jack De Johnette and Richard Davis, it blends straight jazz with the exotic rhythms of Brazil. Stand-out tracks include a funked-up version of Moacir Santos' `Nana' and the jazz dance `Festival' that features outstanding percussion work from Kenneth Nash.

Five INVIGORATING Stars! So much masterful trombone! “Colors” is the 1974 musical offering of globetrotting jazz and latin music trombonist-extraordinare Raul De Souza who can expertly jump musical genres producing excellent results. This recording is evidence of Rio De Janiero-born De Souza’s capabilities as a 'trombonist for all seasons'. Produced by percussionist Airto, De Souza's guest soloist is Hall of Fame alto saxophonist Cannonball Adderley who produces blazing solos on his two appearances. His first-rate rhythm section is drum legend Jack DeJohnette and double bassist supreme Richard Davis, the inventive Ted Lo on keyboards, with Kenneth Nash heading up the percussion section. The horn sections include Snooky Young and Oscar Brashear on trumpets, George Bohanon and Don Waldrop on trombones and baritone horns, with Jerome Richardson and Sahib Shihab on reeds and woodwinds. De Souza’s horn arranger and conductor is Hall of Fame trombonist J.J. Johnson. The 7 tracks include funk, latin beats, dreamy ballads, and fusion numbers, which cover compositions by the likes of Brazilian guitarist Baden Powell, Joe Zawinul, Chick Corea, Barry Finnerty, DeJohnette, and De Souza himself.

The funky number “Nana” demonstrates just how inventive De Souza can be with an impressive solo over the punchy brass, sax, and rhythm section beats. The Brazilian MBP classic “Canto de Ossanha” gets an unusual treatment with the melody emerging late in the song: Cannonball Adderley and De Souza make an imposing pair of soloists. De Souza’s “Water Buffalo” has a lovely out of tempo section surging into a hard-swinging trombone solo pushed along with DeJohnette’s drum accents to the track fadeout.
