Jorginho do Império - Eu E Meu Pandeiro [1976 Polydor] 320 kbps - 102 mb

Where do we start this post? First, this page has a new contributor. This AMAZING share comes to us from our dear friend of this "Samba Hot Spot", DJ Moos of Holland.
Moos, If this was baseball, then this is a HOMERUN! I'll grade it this way. This is basically a flawless transition from the preceding set "Viagem Encantada" from 1975 & equallly as perfect. No wrong moves on this session. This Samba-Line doesn't let up for the duration of its 38 minutes. For Samba-Heads, this IS heaven. This so fits in with the unfolding energies of spring. A mighty celebration of voice, Pandeiro & much, much more. A real treat.
Thank you Moos. You rock! This redefines a "Dutch Treat".
Not only is this record the "Bomb", it's the "Balm" too.
PURE JOY! Make lively Y'all.

  1. WHOOOHOOOO...this is great. A big thanks from sunny Germany!

  2. Jörn, Moos dropped a BOMB on us. It took me 50 listens to figure that out. Boy, you're quick!

  3. What a great post ! Thank you for sharing it Justin and Moos.

  4. You introduced me to Jorge with Viagem Encantada, which I really liked. I especially liked the production and the subtle use of instruments that you don't often hear on samba records -- what sounds like a clavinet on one track, and oh-so-slightly distorted cavaquinho (maybe being played through a small amp?) on another -- just really nice flourishes like that which made the album not only a great thumping samba set but also a joy to listen for those of us who get off on sweet 70s production. (I share the sentiments expressed here, and over at Sounds of the 70s, about this decade being a musical peak in songwriting, performance, production -- in ALL genres of music, really!) THANKS

  5. Flabbergast, The tape saturation is top notch during this era. Brillantly Mic-ed, mixed & compressed. Total Ear-candy.

  6. Ahhhh... An ever so smooth Dutch contribution. My heart swells with pride!

    Top notch album and very, very enjoyable.
