Nico Gomez: Aquarela and Rio
From Bossa Nova (Omega, 197?)
With seeing what others blogs were about this time, I could post something about peruvian scene such as Traffic Sound, Limonada, Coco Lagos, Novalima... Check out this link to see what kind of band they were. See also the compilation Back To Peru released by Vampisoul which include "rare tracks from the Peruvian scene of the 60s and 70s". From the Latin scene I recommand you others compilations recently release by Vampisoul such as Movers and Sensacional Soul.
Nevermind. After I broadcast "Brazilian Beats Brooklyn" last week - best comp than the lasts - you'll see more brazilian cuts here. I remember Punk-Cho and Coffey said they liked the first post I wrote about Nico Gomez. Saw you were more and more - again - to visit this blog. I hope reserve you a "agréable surprise". I felt in love with this excellent, brilliant album. The first album of Nico Gomez and his Orchestra. If you are familiar with Stan Getz and Charlie Byrd's Jazz Samba, you could easily enjoy with this one. En efecto, just listening others jazz tunes "Tristeza", "Desafinado", "Garota de Ipanema" and you'll get the same impression. From his own work, both Ela Mi Deixou and Where Are the Hebrew Children?, by Charlie Byrd, are truly truly sensative tunes. In true, I hesitate a long time between "Bossa Nova" and his last album "Nico Gomez". But his both first albums are very recommanded so... As usual I try to write some extract from press release about each albums. For this post there's an inconvenient. Critics from the "Sunaga 't Experience" and "Kyoto Jazz Massive", and liner notes, are wrote in japaneese. You'll learn more about his career here.
