In 1972, a repressive Brazilian military dictatorship frowned on artistic impression that might influence the youth of the country. However, producer, arranger and guitar player Arthur Verocai released a self-titled album on Brazilian based Continental Records that challenged the musical conventions of the day. His subtle protest experimented with new musical directions, and used figurative language to sneak under the censorship radar.
This unique recording has a touch of Folk, more than a hint of Funk, Jazz-style soloing, amazing 20-piece string arrangements, blending of electronics and keyboards with organic sounds, and superb soundtrack style music. Check the greatness!
