Unbelievable Sounds

Best records of 1998 Joao Donato Quem Y Quem

The Brazil bug is biting hard this year. I guess that sounds a bit grotesque, but when you find another culture with a rich mine of 70's jazz/funk/bossa nova to plunder, you take the dive. Caetano Veloso, Jorge Ben, Gilberto Gil, and Gal Costa could have topped the list but to pick a winner its Joao Donato and the Quem Y Quem record. That mumbly voice and the rock solid gooves, beautiful. And I'm thankful I can't speak Portugese, who knows what he's talking about?
