This post is for my friends who dig A BEAUTIULLY RECORDED ELECTRIC SESSION. Super amazing set recorded in France by two Brasilian expatriates with a yummy Electric Bass & Keyboard sound fused to Brasil Folk with a nice, soft psych edge. Fans of Joyce & Milton Nascimento will marvel at this. Beautifully composed, performed & recorded. This is a very fine Brasilian Folk record with a lovely electric Jazz finish & would sit nicely next to my other post "Jaime & Nair" or "Burnier & Cartier" for that duo sound. Outstanding Guitars, Bass work & Keys & Nana Vasconcelos really shines here on percussion duties & did I mention the exceptional voice of Téca & Ricardo. Quite Heavenly. EXTREMELY BEAUTIFUL & HIGHLY ACCESSABLE! A flawless 37 minute MASTER-WORK. This LP soars like an Eagle. Enjoy!

Teca & Ricardo:
This duo was formed by Teca Calazans and Ricardo Vilas in France, where they lived from 1969 to 1979; they recorded seven albums. Active from 1971 to 1981, the duo performed in several European countries, divulging Brazilian popular and folkloric musics. Jardin Exotique (1979) included Cartola's "Tive Sim" with the participation of the composer. In the same year, they returned to Brazil where they still recorded two albums.
Their most important songs were "Caicó" (Villa-Lobos/Calazans/Milton Nascimento), "Estrela da Canção" (Villas), "Coco Verde" (Calazans/Villas), "Aguaceiro" (Calazans/Villas), and "Povo Daqui" (Calazans). ~ Alvaro Neder, All Music Guide

P.S. The record's a total sleeper & those who enjoy a nicely aged wine will know when I make such a reference that I mean it.
Oh, & I forgot to add, this record rocks the fuck out!
Just give this one a few spins & you'll fall in love with it. OK?
This one benefits with the distance of time. Time was very kind to this session!
One final note. Nana Vasconcelos work on this album is in perfect CONTEXT. His style finds the ideal setting for his voice to be heard properly!
