MARCOS VALLE - PREVISAO DO TEMPO
Beautiful,groovy,wonderful mixture of bossa,electronics and now sound from the fantastic Marcos Valle.This was recorded for Odeon in 1973 and showed him moving away from the familiar bossa sounds of the 60s to incorporate the textures and moods of European soundtracks and French pop to create a radical new interpretation of his Brazilian sound (Interestingly enough Valle used the soon to be Azymuth on this lp - a year later they were in the studio to record their first album as "Azimuth" for Som Livre which will be a future post)
So many great tunes on this lp ranging from the funky "Mentira"to the exquisite "Previsao do Tempo"It also includes the first recording of Batuque - aka Nao Tem Nada Nao, composed by Joao Donato and Eumir Deodato for the Donato/Deodato album, after Portuguese lyrics were added to this song by Marcos Valle.Great music and a superb lp - one of my all time faves -only Donato's Quem a Quem is up with this one but more of that later!!!
Personnel: Marcos Valle (vocal and electric piano), Jose Roberto Bertrami (synths), Alex Malheiros (bass) and Ivan Conti (drums). Arranged by J.R. Bertrami. Orchestrations on tracks 1 and 10 directed by Marcos Valle;on track 7 by Waltel Branco;otherwise Ze Roberto.
Produced by Milton Miranda.
