Tim Maia - Tim Maia

Format: LP
Availability: In stock



Mr Bongo reissue of this 1977 LP by one of the great figures of Brazilian music. Brilliant tracks like E necessario, Verao carioca, Venha dormir em casa or Musica para Betinha make it one of the strongest albums to come out of Brazil in the 1970s. This self titled LP deserves to be shortlisted among Maia's top records. It features killer tunes like the anthemic E necessario, undoubtedly one of the best songs in his career, and also boogie gems such as Verao carioca or Venha dormir em casa that show obvious influences by some of the biggest American soul artists of the time. It also contains intimate vocal delights as in the lovely smooth tune Musica para Betinha or even straight funky instrumentals like Flores belas. The string arrangements, wah wah guitars, horns, deep vocals... make this recording a milestone in the so-called "Black Movement" in Rio, where artists like Toni Tornado, Banda Black Rio and Maia himself were bringing in the funky sounds of America and mixing them with local rhythms like samba.
