This a collection of mainly 70s Brazilian funk, jazz and some bossa, with all tracks featuring a Fender Rhodes electric piano somewhere in the mix.
Joao Donato is the star here, of course – apart from his three tracks, we’ve got also got Marcos Valle and Emilio Santiago covering his songs, and he’s all over the Orlandivo track with his funky keyboards and production.
I’m a total sucker for the ‘beautiful melancholy’ of some brazilian orchestrators, so we’ve also got the dark beauty of works by Hermeto Pascoal. Luis Eca and Moacir Santos running through their own tracks and others. Listen to Airto's beautiful take on Hermeto's 'Mae Cambina' . Finally, “special contemporary guest” for this edition of the Rhodes series is Ed Motta with ‘Coisas Naturais’ from the fantastic “Dwitza” album.
Give me a shout there if you’re in love with a particular track and curious about what album it comes from. Enjoy!
*STOP PRESS : Those of you feeling the Hermeto orchestrations really also need to grab this album
