CD Reviews

Tamba 4 is music for the thinking person
05/11/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The Brasilian jazz sound of Tamba 4 isn't to be confused with easy listening. The music is quiet and soothing, but there's a lot of subtle qualities to be discovered by careful listening. The group includes Luiz Eca (piano), Ohana (percussion), Bebeto (flutes) and Dorio (bass/percussion). The group is backed by a large string section. My favorite tracks are "Watch What Happens," "Reza" and "Slick" (a Tijuana Brass tune). SAMBA BLIM was issued on vinyl as A&M CTI SP 3013 in 1968, their second for the label. The first, WE AND THE SEA (SP 3004) is more experimental and forceful. There also is rumored to exist a third previously unreleased album. It would be great to see all of this fine unit's work reissued on domestic CDs."
Any Serious Bossa Nova Collection Must Include "Samba Blim"

"Tamba 4 began as a trio in the late fifties in Brazil. Luiz Eça at the piano and arrangments, Bebeto on flute and Hélcio Milito on drums are the key members who made Tamba one of the most important models of Bossa Nova. Gorgeous sound, contageous rhythm."

""Samba Blim" was the follow up to A&Ms release of "We and the Sea" and it is really nice to see it out on CD.
This is a more accesable and generally lighter set than its predecessor but that should not be considered a criticism. This is about as nice as Bossa Nova gets. Beautiful music with substance and a lot of heart.
The reason I only gave this four stars is because my experience with "Samba Blim" is limited to the LP. One of the LPs virtues was the tasteful recording job done by Rudy Van Gelder. Occasionally high end re-mastering can result in overly bright CDs.
Even so, the worse that could happen is that you will have to thottle back the treble a little bit. Highly recommended."
