Too Slow To Disco Brasil Compiled By Ed Motta
Ed Motta – legendary Brazilian singer, musician and friend of Soul Brother – is the latest compiler in the ‘Too Slow To Disco’ series and he puts the focus firmly on sounds from his homeland. The vibe is very much in that slick, sophisticated late 70s/early 80s Yacht soul/AOR vein typified by the kind of Steely Dan/Doobie Brothers blue eyed FM groove of the era. Junior Mendes’ ‘Copacabana Sadia’, Fido Machado’s ‘Quero Pouco, Quero Muito’, Sandra Sa’s ‘Guarde Mina Voz’, Jane Duboc’s ‘Se Eu Te Pego De Jeito’, Cassiano’s ‘Rio Best-seller’, Bryhlo’s ‘Joiha Rara’ and Gelson Oliviera & Luis Ewerling’s ‘Acordes E Sementes’ are highlights but to be honest you could put this on at a garden party and your soundtrack would be sorted for seventy minutes! Great summer sounds!
