Brazilian Master Percussionist's Best Solo Album
Johan Reijenga | Groningen, The Netherlands | 03/19/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)
"Paulinho da Costa. His name can be found on the back of literally hundreds of album covers. He has accompanied the crop of Brazilian and American musicians on their recording sessions and during live concerts. In 1977, four years after his arrival in the US, this album was released. An almost forgotten classic, featuring Lee Ritenour on guitar and Greg Phillinganes on keyboards. The rhythm section is entirely Brazilian, as your body will immediately sense when you play this CD. Producer Claudio Slon on bass, Octavio Bailly, Jr. on Drums and Paulinho da Costa on Percussion.Simbora, the opening track, kicks off with a lot of energy and vigour. "Let's Go" is what it means and what it conveys to the listener as well. Jazz/Samba fusion at its best. The last track, Ritmo Number One, is a pulsating Samba Batucada, Brazil's polyrhythmic accompaniment to its famous Carnival parades. A dancefloor killer for the right crowd! In between there are four more songs ranging from traditional Afro-Brazilian folk call-and-response to sophisticated Latin Jazz and Jazz/Samba. A good, varied, and interesting album if you like rhythm. Ingenious big band horn arrangements, and beautiful solos over driving grooves. Buy it!"
1976, but a precursor to much of what you heard today

"I found this title listed on Lee Ritenour's website under his discography section. I can't add much to what the other poster said, but this is one of those albums that makes you say, "This kinda sounds like..." This is a minefield for groups like Theivery Corporation to remix.
A great find!"
