A terrific bossa nova offering from Tamba4 -- this self-titled record was released in 1970 on the Mexican label Orfeon. Originally called Tamba Trio, the group perfected an urbane, breezy variant of bossa, which scored them several big hits in Brazil. Their records represent the very best that '60s bossa nova has to offer. This album is a comparative rarity next to their legendary earlier work, but this is truly fantastic material on par with anything else they cut. The group's founder, Luiz Eça, had departed by this point and he's replaced here by the formidable Laercio De Freitas. The mood is light and the sound is in general a bit more upbeat than their earlier work, with superb vocal harmonies and prominent percussion. They selected songs from Jorge Ben, Antonio Adolfo and Tibério Gaspar, and Milton Nasciemento, among others. Songs include "Pais Tropical," "Samarina," "Sem Voce En Nao Vivo," "Pensando," "Zazueira," "Correnteza," "Se Voce Pensa," "Juliana," "Lenga-Lenga," "Veracruz", and more.
