To wrap the bossa posts up for the time being here's another rarity for you.
Som Tres 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 also expanded a lot with late 60s orchestrations.This album is from 1969 and features the dance floor bomb "Homenagem a Mongo".It's fairly similar in style to the other Som 3 lps I have posted here -brass,strings and percussion augmenting the trio with some pretty mad results including a great version of "California Soul".
This one hasn't made it to cd yet although the vinyl got bootlegged ( a dodgy repress?) some time ago.
