Product Description

Product Description

William Magalhães forms a modern-day Banda Black Rio epitomising the spirit of his father Oberdan's original '70s Brazilian samba soul and funk group. BBR defined the Black Rio movement now enjoying a revival headed by Magalhães' incarnation with the passion of soul and funk again linking Rio and New York for a feel-good blast that also takes in hip-hop, samba, pop and bossa. Brazilian icons Seu Jorge, Marcio Local and Elza Soares feature alongside bossa pioneers Caetano Veloso and Gilberto Gil as well as Flame Killer and GOD PT3 from the famed NYC Mobb Deep crew. Super Nova Samba Funk brings Rio's black music cultures together to embody the ecstatic revival of Brazil and the Black Rio movement. Formed in Rio De Janeiro, 1976, Banda Black Rio pioneered the soul-funk movement in Brazil led by renowned saxophonist Oberdan Magalhaes. Banda Black Rio released a string of unforgettable recordings in the late-1970s from 1977 debut album, Maria Fumaça, on Warner Music to 1978's Gafieira Universal on RCA Recordings that is considered one of the all-time great Brazilian jazz-funk records. The third album, SaciPererê, was also released in 1978 by which point the band had made a lasting impact both in Brazil and abroad. Following the death of original band leader Oberdan Magalhães in 1984 the band stopped recording and performing. Far Out's Joe Davis helped the rare-groove scene rediscover BBR in the early 90s supplying the top DJs such as Gilles Peterson and Norman Jay with the imported vinyl before celebrated artists such as Mos Def and Incognito recorded their songs to further resurrect the legendary band's name. BBR finally arrived back with a brand new formation for their comeback album Movimento in 2000, which was given a European release as Rebirth before launching their most ambitious project to date with 2011's Super Nova Samba Funk – the group's sixth studio album produced and led by William Magalhães. The philosophy on Super Nova Samba Funk remains the same: celebrating the musicality of black Brazil through strong lyrical representation and its unique combination of jazz, funk, soul, samba and gafieira. Opener Nove no Samba and Samba Nova are two special instrumental tracks that showcase Rio's finest players who together form BBR. Isabella combines elegant brass, jazz and gafieira swing that counts the special input of Elza Soares – the legendary scatting samba singer – and Cesar Carmargo Mariano – the famed pianist and arranger, father of Maria Rita, and husband to Elis Regina. Irerê is built around a beautiful melody sung to Africa by Gilberto Gil – bossa nova MPB and tropilcalia revolutionary. Nossa Jornada, Final Feliz and Aos Pés do Redentor, featuring Tropicalismo and bossa pioneer Caetano Veloso, confirm that Afro-Brazilian roots exist in bossa nova as well as samba. Seu Jorge – world famous Brazilian musician, singer, songwriter and actor famed for his roles in City of God and Life Aquatic whose latest music project with Almaz signed to Stones Throw Records - distinctive samba vocals fire the infectious Brazilian soul-pop of Louis Lane; Marcio Local - a major new Brazilian star signed to David Byrne's Luaka Bop imprint - combines samba and soul on the swinging "carioca" melody Quem Vem lá. Rap and R&B brings respected artists such as Dom Pixote and Mano Brown as well as notorious Queens, New York, rappers from the million-selling Mobb Deep crew Flame Killer - extensively featured with Mobb Deep - and God Pt3 - leading member in Blaq Mobb & Infamous Mobb - on US East Coast hip-hop collaboration track Back to the Project. SNSF is a unification of black music styles, rhythms, artists & generations rising up like an exploding super nova star.

Format: Audio CD
We almost spat our tea all over the computer screen when we got the notification this morning of a new Banda Black Rio album. Having just recovered we then almost choked on our toast and marmite when we read they had also dragged Seu Jorge, Marcio Local, Elza Soares and Caetano Veloso amongst others into the studio as well. They've even enlisted Flame Killer and GOD PT3 from the Mobb Deep crew on 'Back to the Project' to share their ghetto drug and violence tales, all too familiar in the favelas, to keep the cross cultural vibes right up to date.

Formed in Rio De Janeiro, 1976, Banda Black Rio pioneered the soul-funk movement in Brazil led by renowned saxophonist Oberdan Magalhaes. As global stars of the politically charged Black Rio movement, emerging almost a decade earlier from the Soul Brasileiro genre, BBR brought together Rio's black funk scene to rally against repression, a conservative record industry and white middle class press to mobilise disenchanted black Brazilian youth against the military dictatorship that mirrored the struggles in North America. Banda Black Rio released a string of great recordings in the late-1970s from 1977 debut album, Maria Fumaça, on Warner Music to 1978's Gafieira Universal on RCA Recordings that is considered one of the all-time great Brazilian jazz-funk records. The third album, SaciPererê, was also released in 1978. After a renaissance in Brazil's black music culture led by a new generation of soul, funk and hip hop artists BBR finally arrived back with a brand new formation for comeback album Rebirth in 2000, before Super Nova Samba Funk - the group's sixth studio album produced and led by William Magalhães.

HASH(0x8f18bc6c) out of 5 stars Spectacular! 30 Sept. 2013
By DAN - Published on Amazon.com
This tremendous album explodes with Brazilian funk and soul.

Stylistically, it's comparable to American high-Motown, soul and jazz - and, (alas) even a rap track - so even people who don't speak Portuguese will relate and respond to the lush, passionate arrangements. Still, with inimitable, joyful sensuality, it is definitely Brazilian.

If this weren't enough, some tracks feature pillars of modern Brazilian music (e.g. Gilberto Gil, Caetano Veloso).

Having emigrated from Brasil when I was a child, I'm sorry to have missed the original group. But am ecstatic at having stumbled upon this wonderful album and am eagerly anticipating more. (In the meantime, will obviously "back-fill" with albums from the original group.)

A bad day can't exist, and a good day will be even better with this spectacular album for a sound track.
