Jazzy groovers from Brazilian hero Marcos Valle... nice Light In the Attic package, old-schoolÂ "tip-on: jacket, gatefold, 180 gram vinyl, whoo!
Light In The Attic tells us:
Ten years after Marcos Valleâ€™s debut long player (Samba Demais)
introduced Brazilian music lovers to the immense talents of the Valle
brothers, a new direction and backing band helped the singer expand his
musical palette. Showcasing a groovy funk and jazz-fusion influence with
help from then current backing band Azimuth (later known as Azymuth),
synthesizers, Fender Rhodes, and electronic sounds took Valleâ€™s samba,
bossa nova, baiÃ£o (a rhythmic beat from the rural northeast of Brazil),
along with the inspiration of black American music and psychedelic rock
from prior albums, to dimensions unheard. While not a complete
departure, the vocals, grooves, and engaging songs of PrevisÃ£o Do Tempo are guaranteed to make you feel free and think deep.
PrevisÃ£o Do Tempo was originally released in 1973 and
quickly became a favorite of Valle disciples. Still committed to
political/cultural criticism through his music, Marcos was reaching a
plateau in terms of sound and vision (PrevisÃ£o Do Tempo sports
an arresting sleeve shot of Marcos underwater and also features
contributions from Waltel Branco and O TerÃ§o). Any way you spin it,
Light In The Attic is proud to present PrevisÃ£o Do Tempo as
part of our four-album Marcos Valle reissue campaign. Consisting of an
ambitious string of early 1970s landmark studio sessions (sympathetic in
spirit to Stevie Wonder and Marvin Gayeâ€™s game changing work from the
same era) and released on CD and LP, PrevisÃ£o Do Tempo features
extensive liner notes by San Francisco-based writer Allen Thayer (Wax
Poetics) with exclusive interview content and song-by-song breakdown
from Marcos himself. Fans new and old will finally have easy breezy
access to these once hard-to-find Brazilian classics.
