Can you imagine a Dutch band playing top-notch '60s/'70s sounding Brazilian music? Originally released as a private pressing in 1983, Palmeira's only album will please any lover of bossa, jazzy-and-Latin-fusion sounds. Beautiful femme vocals, superb musicianship featuring the awesome lead electric guitar of Jeanette van der Pligt, self-penned songs and choice covers of Caetano Veloso, João Gilberto, and Rita Lee, and others. Palmeira was a Brazilian-styled band formed by Angelo Noce Santoro (ex-Cosmic Dealer) along with some Dutch, North American, and Brazilian musicians. The group existed from 1979 until 1985, playing lots of gigs at jazz venues and nightclubs in Holland. In 1983 they released their only album in a private edition of 500 copies on Santoro's ANS label. A cult item for fans of bossa-jazz, it was first reissued in 2007 as a limited edition in Japan, which has since gone out of print. The CD edition of this reissue features six bonus tracks, including one that was not included on the Japanese reissue. The bonus tracks, recorded the same year as the album, come from Santoro's tape archive and include some great covers of giants like Edu Lôbo and Jorge Ben, and others. Master tape sound; includes insert/booklet with liner notes and pictures. File under: Brazilian, bossa-nova, Latin-jazz.
