|Bossa Rock Blues #1 performed by Manfredo Fest ()|
Really suprised to see this one in a thrift store recently. I was taken back by the bad cover photo of some blue cheese in tin foil with saltines and a bottle of wine.(?) Anyway, the music is fantastic, much in the vein of Jobim's CTI work from the same period. This piece grooves almost more in a Deodato way, with a nice funky nocturnal jazz bite. Nice to see the gap close on the years between his Bossa Rio stint and the records he did for Discovery.
Strangely enough it was recorded in Minneapolis MN while he was living there. On the RCA subsidary Daybreak.
