LP version. 2006 release. La Nueva Onda del Brasil (or The New Wave of Brasil) is a fantastic album of Brazilian groove brought to you by the genius of Luiz Eça, the pianist of the historic Tamba Trio/Tamba 4 (a fundamental piece in Brazilian MBP) and a very important figure of the birth and development of bossanova. On this very rare record Luiz Eca is surrounded by many outstanding musicians: Nana Vasconcelos, Claudio Roditi, Nelson Angelo, Mauricio Maestro and Wilson Simonal. The album was recorded in 1970, but then remained unreleased until 1978, when it came out only on the Mexican label RVV. Includes both standards and originals, all performed in a very free style, a sort of very late and evolved bossa mixed with jazz and a little bit of soul. A window in to the Brazilian musical melting pot from the end of the '60s, it could be described as the White Album that Sergio Mendes & Brasil 66 never recorded. This reissue has been mastered from first hand tapes and the sound quality is top notch.
