Various - "Brazil Rhodes 3" (comp #13)



 "Bem Vinda" (excerpt)

 "Transamazonica" (excerpt)

 "Brazilian Skies" (excerpt)

 "Viramundo" (excerpt)

 "A Chamada" (excerpt)

"Previsao do Tempo" (excerpt)

Commiserations to our brazilian friends for the football - some consolation here in the form of twenty-three storming rhodes tracks from, or inspired by their great land.

A brief intro from the master, Hermeto Pascoal, leads us into some jazz-fused bangers from Som Imaginario, Antonio Adolfo, Marcos Resende and others.


O Quarteto's clustered vocal tones take us through some live Sergio Mendes and Brasil '77 into the middle section, fusing pop, funk and soul with Marcos Valle, Hyldon, Banda Black Rio and more.

The fusions of Azymuth and Headhunter Bill Summers (check that keyboard solo) leads us back to the atmospherics of Robertinho Silva and the deeper jazz of an uncharacteristically instrumental Ed Motta, before we finish with the beautiful melancholy of instrumental Marcos Valle and the amazing voice of Alaide Costa accompanied by Oscar Castro-Neves.


Enjoy the comp, check the previews above - all tracks @ 320kbps bar one or two - and leave a comment so that I know you're with me on this blogging trip ...

Big everlasting thanks to many blogs and bloggers for feeding my love of various brazilian musics over the last few years - including Quimsy, Ish, Bacoso, Reza, BC, Porco Rosso, Flabbergast, J Thyme, Bruxa, all the Gears crew, and many more, sorry if I've forgotten you ....

Thank you! I love all of your comps (you have a great ear)! Can't wait to check it out!

thanks for the comments guys :)
Blogger comments were not publishing for 24 hours, so I had to put the link in the post itself - always means you lose most comments, so thanks for going to the effort, and glad you're enjoying this :)

outstanding effort - thanks

taro nombei said...

no need to mess around with the excerpts, straight in with the DL.
thanks as aways Simon, I know it's going to be another crackerjack.
much appreciated!

elusive said...

amazing stuff! thank you!

please more compilations! (i've started downloading the previous ones)

Flabbergast said...

Man, it is really cosmically unfair that I can't get most of your shares (or anyone else's) from my current home due to my crappy ISP's issues with doling out IP addresses. I will try to grab this from a wireless hook-up next time I am in the city, it looks delicious.
Meanwhile thanks for the shout-out. ;)

Simon666 said...

Well I hope you can get it Flabbergast :) Thanks also for your kinds words on the Gil Scott post, which I just read.

All the best!

Magenta Omnivore said...

Wow! Can't wait to listen to these comps. Your work is much appreciated!

censusloss said...

Hi Simon, too long before I stopped by. The Brazil Rhodes Comp 3 is FANTASTICALLY FINE! the Hermeto Pascoal opener is especially tasty -going to check out your other Brazilian comps now, and I hope find a lot more Hermeto- IF none on your site, do you know where I could pick up a listen of more of his work
The Rhodes ( which I love playing as an amateur seems particularly RIGHT in Brazil mode!
Peace and many many thanks to you
C

Simon666 said...

Thanks Magenta and Censusloss :)

Censusloss, glad you're liking the Hermeto. Everything he does is interesting in some way, but I'd strongly recommend these three albums :

Hey, just wanted to say how much I appreciate your blog. This is truly wonderful stuff. But I have a burning request. You seem to know a lot about Brazilian music. I have this song off a radio show, truly an amazing singer with a poignant timbre to her voice and the backing rhodes, well it's what keeps me playing. But I don't know the name of the song and I can't for the life of me pinpoint who the singer is. If I were to manage to get this song to you somehow, do you think you can help me out, or maybe some of your readers? If you read this, you can contact me at malzabon@hotmail.com, and my name is Christo. Regards.

Simon666 said...

hey christo ... I'm no expert by maybe someone can help you :)
You should upload the song to somewhere like mediafire.com so we can hear it ...

Hey Simon, I uploaded the file to mediafire. Hope I can have some success. Here's the link:

Hey, me again, Christo. I found the name of the singer and the song. She is Nana Caymmi, Brasilian, and the title of the song is, "Essas Tardes Assim." Thanks to all. And keep the music alive Simon!

Simon666 said...

Hey Christo, glad you found it :) I knew the voice but couldn't quite place it ....

Dude, why do you use Rapidshare? It's the worse and takes for ever. I wouldn't give them any business anymore.

Anyway, your stuff is great.

Simon666 said...

Thanks for all the comments guys, glad you're enjoying this one : )

To the latest comment : Well, I'm glad I uploaded this album 18 months ago to Rapidshare, and not Megaupload, Fileshare, Filesonic, 4share etc etc etc ... it may be slow, but it's still here :)

Your Hip-Hop comp was fantastic and turned me onto some great artists as well as reminding me of some I hadn't kept up with. Any chance of another?
