The 1960's and 70's saw an incredible flowering of a unique and funky pop sensibility in the music of Brazil. Following the massive cross-over success of the Bossa Nova into American jazz and subsequently into an increasingly bland easy-listening mainstream, Brazil itself, rather than stagnating, found a new confidence with an outpouring of wonderfully inventive music and a string of incredible song-writers. Strong on melody and harmony but with distinct rhythmic and percussive elements August's FRESHLY SQUEEZED gets into a Brazilian groove. Digging through the crates to come up with a special selection of lesser-known, vinyl-only gems. Hat's off to the Rio Olympics 2016.
