World Cup Brazil Album-A-Day [Black Rio 2]

Day 17. 
The action is back with round of 16 matches today.
Today's album is a compilation which I wasn't sure if I was going to do as you always feel it's kinda cheating but whatever! I really wanted to share Pete Dunaway's 1974 self titled album but it's not streaming anywhere so the next best thing is this fantastic compilation "Black Rio 2" that has the stand out track from Dunaway's record and a bunch more soulful, funky, Brazilian vibes. A great selection of tracks from the always on point Strut Recordings.

Enjoy.

World Cup Brazil Album-A-Day [Os Ipanemas]

Day 16. 
It is the first day of no football at the world cup. 
It is a strange day after 15 days of back to back action.
Relax and enjoy some music.
Os Ipanemas aka The Ipanemas are a collective of Brazilian musicians who dropped on album back in the 60s and went on to other things individually. Reunited by UK label Far Out Recordings in early 2000s they started laying down their special sound of African and Brazilian rhythms. 
Enjoy.

WorldCup Brazil Album-A-Day 015 [Jorge Ben]

Day 15...almost missed today.
Congrats to USA, and Algeria (1st time in last 16). 
Jorge Ben is a big figure in Brazil's musical history. A big influence. 
His 1969 self titled album contains one of my fav tracks of his "Take it easy my brother charles" that was also sampled to perfection by Drumagik's "Easy Boom" that transformed it into a Brazilian style drum 'n bass monster.

I hope you enjoy this fantastic record that features a ton of great material from Jorge.

World Cup Brazil Album-A-Day 014 [Elis Regina]

Day 14! Boom!
Shocking scenes from Brazil yesterday. Ivory Coast going out on the final kick of the game and Uruguay...enough said.
I'm sticking with the female vocalist vibe from yesterday and Elis Regina and her 1972 album Elis is what I have in store for today. If you don't know her already you'll recognized her voice for sure. 
Very much a national treasure who sadly passed away too young.

Enjoy.

World Cup Album-A-Day 013 [Flora Purim]

Day 13 is here and still a lot of football to be played.
Props to Mexico yesterday.
Today is all about Flora Purim. One of many talented voices of Brazilian music.
Married to another great Brazilian artist, Airto Moreira, she is a force of nature in jazz.
Her "Flora e MPM" is the first record she cut singing many Bossa standards.

Enjoy.
