Jazzy groovers from Brazilian hero Marcos Valle... nice Light In the Attic package, old-school "tip-on: jacket, gatefold, 180 gram vinyl, whoo!
Light In The Attic tells us:
Ten years after Marcos Valle’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 Valle’s samba,
bossa nova, baião (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 Previsão Do Tempo are guaranteed to make you feel free and think deep.
Previsão 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 (Previsão Do Tempo sports
an arresting sleeve shot of Marcos underwater and also features
contributions from Waltel Branco and O Terço). Any way you spin it,
Light In The Attic is proud to present Previsão 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 Gaye’s game changing work from the
same era) and released on CD and LP, Previsão 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.
