SummaryFar Out Recrodings is delighted to unveil the fourth instalment of this unique and diverse compilation series. 'Viagem 4,' Nicola Conte's seminal reboot of swing series highlights the upfront bossa and samba jazz rhythms that have kept the cafes, clubs and jazz halls of Brazil heaving for over five decades
The Viagem series takes its fourth voyage back to the 60's era swinging Brazil. Digging ever deeper, Brazilophile and Italian jazz don Nicola Conte has re-discovered seventeen choice rarities 1962 - 1970. As the global centre for all that was musically cool, these bossa nova and samba jazz hybrids blend the passion and far out darkness of Afro- Brazilian music with the sophisticated styles of Europe and North America. Often written to take bossa back to the people and in protest against the dictatorship that held sway in 1964, these long-neglected classics are expertly conjured together by Blue Note, Universal and Schema recording artist Nicola Conte.
This rare collection, lovingly curated by Italy's king of swing Nicola Conte, opens with 7 De Ouros' 'So' Balanco' setting the stage with a sax and brass-infused palette laying down the compilation's fundamental groove. Gems like Anilza Leoni's 'Balumba' invoke memories of 'pulp' dramas with its memorable chorus which will have you singing and swinging along to its infectious bossa beat fever. Piano-led instrumental showcases like Bwana Trio's 'Cute' and Bossa Jazz 3's 'Outra Vez' examplify the collection's high notes of jazz riffing and musicianship, while vocal performances like Myrzo Barroso's 'Consolacao' and Rosana Tapajos's 'Te Quiero Assim' imbue the selection with the sensual expression of the era. A nostalgia laden tour de force and journey deep into the lost sonics of Brazil's musical history and jazz identity, Viagem 4 is an essential addition to any connoisseur's collection and brings to the listener an unparalelled experience of music that inspired the foundation of Far Out Recordings.
