8/10 Mingus Staff review, 30 August 2007
Various Artists: 'Brazil 70' After Tropicalia- New Directions (Soul Jazz), updates Soul Jazz's brilliantly curated compilation of last year which covered much of the highlights of the movement's music of the 1960's. The lineage here covers developments throughout the 1970's and the influence of western Pop, Rock and Soul/Disco productions fused with Samba, Jazz, Bossa Nova & other Brazilian folk traditions to concoct a heady brew of infectious rhythmatic constructions, uplifting vocals and tropical hedonism. Includes little heard tunes by Nelson Angelo & Joyce, Gal Costa, Gilberto Gil and Rita Lee of Os Mutantes amongst the lesser known artists compiled. The tropicalia movement itself was a cultural wave that encompassed other artforms like: poetry, architecture, painting, sculpture and film, which is well worth investigating through the sleeve notes of this LP and the previous collection. The vinyl has 16 tracks while the CD clocks in at a mighty 19 tracks. Really quite a brilliant exposition of developments of one strand of Latin culture.
