Brazilian superstar Ed Motta returns with a new album in the form of ‘Criterion Of The Senses’, two years after his acclaimed ‘Perpetual Gateways’ release and the late 70s ‘Yacht soul’ vibe is in full effect here. Motta masters that balance between AOR and innovation with a nod to the likes of Steely Dan and co. especially on the bobbing groover ‘Lost Connection To Prague’. The Donny Hathaway feel of ‘Sweetest Berry’ gives the set a funky touch while the fusion fuelled ‘Novice Never Notice’ takes its cue from the Beckett/Fagan school of Jazz. ‘Your Satisfaction is Mine’ is a firey, boogie heavy dancer, ‘The Required Dress code’ again borrows from that luxurious, turn-of-the-80s L.A sound while the jazz guitar and brushed percussion of ‘The Tiki’s Broken There’ create a live beachside lounge atmosphere. Motta is a master of the cool, elegant, smooth groove with an edge. Superb album.
