Luiz Gonzaga Jr. - Plano De Vôo [1975 EMI] 256 kbps - 74 mb (Reup)


Excellent example of mid 70's Brasilian Folk-Jazz of the Singer-Songwriter variety. This one has a beautiful Electric Jazz finish framing his inspired Folk style. The sound could be described as "Fusion". The playing here is very fleshed out by all players involved & perfectly laid to tape by the engineers over at EMI Odeon studios. Luiz Gonzaga Jr. really shines on this set & mid 70's in Brasil is such a "No Brainer" as far as quality is concerned. This one tops out at 40 minutes, but it manages to stay focused for the whole of the length. Very solid & a completely engaging listen. I love this recording. Flawless & very inspired songwriting here. When it comes to "It". This one has it! Enjoy!

  4. Thanx. Very original sound. I hadn't heard anything from this artist apart from the nice song "Moleque" [on Blue Brazil Vol. 2]

    I only recently discovered your marvellous website and am now slowly checking it out. I'm overwhelmed. Your knowledge of Brazilan music is impressive.
