Les Masques - Brasilian Sound [1969 CBS] France - 320 kbps - 74 mb


Excellent example of Bossa inspired French Jazz Pop. Words to convey a lovely little 30 minute set such as this would be, "Groovy", "Easy", "Fun", "Breezy", "Lighthearted" & they would perfectly get the idea across. I think this record has aged well & yes, I think Austin Power's romps would be even more memorable with liberal sprinklings of tracks from a disc like this. Spare a half an hour & float on this French perfumed Bossa cloud of vocal Jazz. Lovely!!!

File Under: French Bossa Jazz/ French Jazz Pop

P.S. That's Le Trio Camara backing the lovely ladies. Their - Le Trio Camara [1968 Saravah] France, can be found at Loronix.
I thought I'd bounce back easy. Easy enough?
Also, Stereolab wishes they were this tight. Sorry Stereolab. Tighten up your song-writing! If anyone finds that remark offensive, then boy do I have a pie to toss in your face with this record!

  2. Yes Scheckmaster, This could easily be passed over as a lightweight Bossa styled French Jazz-Pop record, but what's wrong with a lightweight Bossa styled French Jazz-Pop record when it's served up as nicely as this?
    This is kinda deluxe of its kind. A "sleeper". It creeps up on you after a few listens, kinda like after a few glasses of bubbly.
