Soul Jazz Records Presents Tropicália: A Brazilian Revolution in Sound CD, Import
As Championed by David Byrne, Beck, Kurt Cobain, Stereolab and Many More, Tropicalia Revolutionized Brazilian Music in the Late 1960s. This is the First Album to Bring Together all the Artists Involved in Tropicalia - Os Mutantes, Gilberto Gil, Caetano Veloso, Tom Ze, Gal Costa and More. This Soul Jazz Release Comes Complete with the Customary Extensive Sleeve-notes Contextualising Tropicalia, Exclusive Photos and Slipcase.
This dizzyingly diverse melting pot of sounds is a perfect primer on tropicalia--and then some. Tropicalia arose in the late 1960s as a genre informed by rock, bossa nova, soul, and underground rhythms, all mashed together to create an electrifying new movement in Brazilian music. The artists assembled here--Os Mutantes, Gilberto Gil, Caetano Veloso, Tom Ze, Gal Costa-are all an integral part of the tropicalia scene. Each, however, makes their own potent artistic statement. Enthusiastic vocals, inspired chants, inventive loops, and hushed arrangements collide throughout this expanse collection. You're never quite sure what you'll hear from track to track. Gal Costa's "Vou Recomecar" is a delight, playing like a foreign counterpart to Dusty Springfield's blue-eyed soul sparkle. The genius, however, is that every moment on Tropicalia sounds both classic and modern at the same time. Most everything here is as urgent and electric as anything you'll hear on contemporary radio. --Joey Guerra
Everyone is represented: Ben, Jobim, Gil, Mutantes, Costa and more.
Every Soul Jazz collection is a bounty and this one is no different.
Love live Tropicalia! Long live Soul Jazz!
Some genius compiled this list of legends from Brasil and created a masterpiece! Caetano Veloso, Gilberto Gil, Os Mutantes, Gal Costa and Tom Ze and others!
Here are songs from the 60's-70's of Brasil that rocked the house and these songs still stand the test of time.
these songs have many different ranges in sounds but you wanna get up shake it up when you hear'em and maybe take a tab or two and just get down.
You have some great Bossa Nova overtones all over it but when you least expect it the Mutants will play something trippy, you'll never know who's gonna play what.
You get a good sample of all of the different stylings these artist are capable of.
this CD is a must! this CD is an incredible starter kit for anyone interested in the musical legends of Brasil.
I am a fan of 60s music and vintage 60s sounds, and this album is a treasure chest of pyschedelia that I had never been exposed to before.
I don't hand out too many 5 stars (or 1 star for that matter), but this one is worthy if you love that sound....
