Sister Bossa 9
This excellent series from Irma continues to deliver fine Brazilian and Brazilian influenced tunes that reflect the broad range of styles this Italian label promotes. The opening two tracks are cool crooner type cuts la Mario Biondi; Papik’s ‘Staying For Good’ and ‘J J Vianello and The Soul Bullets’ ‘Cincinnati Kid’. The Shifters’ breezy ‘Farniente’ and Modulos’ ‘Exploration Bossa Nova’ are fine Bossa tinged Jazz. On a more contemporary vibe check Masetro Garafalo’s ‘Samba E Amor’ and the infectious ‘Tempo Vai’ from Xuxu adds a dance flavour.
