A big "Thank You" to Loronix blogspot for this post & this share. I choose to give this very special Samba LP a little extra exposure because I'd rather not see a gem like this get lost in the shuffle. Great Year. Great Artist. Great Label. Spins beautifully & has outstanding production. Nelson Cavaquinho is in peak form & the Odeon studio is right there to see that all goes well in the recording of this session. Very, very strong guitar work here, cuica too & the choral work is quite heavenly as well. I would safely call this a masterpiece of the Samba form. One that Samba lovers should enjoy having in their collection. Enjoy & thank you Zeca for this mighty post & gracious share. Much love.

P.S. I could spin a record like this 2 or 3 times in a row it's so enjoyable! The studios have finally figured out how to record this music to best effect at this time. Just listen to how the Samba Bass Drum & Cuica are placed in the sound. We are listening to not just beautiful composition here, but the art of where to place the microphones for the best sound. The form is hitting a peak & this is one of its triumphs!
For my continued look at the Odeon sound!
