||"La Nueva Onda del Brasil" (or The New Wave of Brasil) is a fantastic album of "brasilian groove" brought to you by the genious of LUIZ EÇA, the pianist of the historic TAMBA TRIO / TAMBA 4 (a fundamental piece in Brazilian popular music) and a very important figure of the birth and developement of Bossanova. On this very rare record LUIZ EÇA is surrounded by many outstanding musicians: Nana Vasconcelos, Claudio Roditi, Nelson Angelo, Mauricio Maestro, Wilson Simonal... The album was recorded in 1970, but then remained unreleased until 1978, when it came out only in the Mexican label RVV. Includes both standards and originals, all performed on a very free style, some sort of very late and evolutioned Bossa mixed with Jazz and a little bit of Soul... A window open to the brasilian musical meltin' pot of the end of he 60s it could be decribed as "the White Album that SERGIO MENDES & BRASIL 66 did never recorded"! Our reissue has been mastered from first hand tapes, and the sound quality is top notch, much better than a previous CD version with a different title. A mint copy of the original LP can cost about $500 so get ours and save a fortune!
