SOM TRES - SHOW
You won't find a groovier group than Som Tres -- and if you need proof, check out this fantastic album! The group were a post-bossa trio led by pianist Cesar Camargo Mariano -- and they grooved with a sound that started with the core piano trio sound of the bossa age, but which was also expanded a lot with late 60s orchestrations. The result is an incredibly strong batch of tunes that groove from the get-go -- and which soar along the best baroque lines of the Blue Brazil generation. The whole album's great -- with some light vocals, and lots of cool instrumentals.
