Arthur Verocai - Arthur Verocai
Regular price $ 30.00
Vinyl LP pressing. Digitally remastered edition. Recorded at Studio Somil, Rio de Janeiro in 1972, the album was produced, arranged, directed by the self-taught, Arthur Verocai. Previously he had worked on many records in various capacities, with artists including Jorge Ben, Ivan Lins and Celia, this album gave him the chance to do his thing in it's most pure form. The 29 minute masterpiece, perfect in it's arrangement and fusion of sonics, epitomizes the sound of Brazil at the time; strings, guitars, pianos, break beats, bass-lines, synthesizers, vocals from the wonderful Célia and percussion from Pedro Santos. Bossa nova, samba, jazz, MPB, psychedelics and funk sit side by side effortlessly. The album transcends the genre of Brazilian music, and in fact all genres. Highlighted in part by the number of artists that have sampled from it; MF Doom, Ludacris & Common, Little Brother, Jneiro Jarel AKA Dr Who Dat?, Dibiase and Action Bronson amongst others. The original Continental versions of the album now fetch around $2000. Our definitive re-issue is taken from the Continental tapes, remastered in 2012 under Arthur's supervision.
