O Tempo Do Samba


This fourth album from Grupo Batuque features 10 full length album tracks plus eight percussive and vocal edits. The core of the album was written by Ivan Conti, one third of Azymuth and a regular Far Out contributor. He was helped by percussionist Cidinho Moreira who has previously perfomed with the likes of Stevie Wonder and Paul Simon as well as the crème de la crème of Brazilian artists. He is backed up on percussion by Pirulito, who in the '70s was a regular member of Jorge Ben's legendary Banda Ze Pretinho. Nico Rezende is a famous Brazilian pianist who had major success in the '80s as did composer, songwriter and saxophonist Leo Gandelman who worked on the searing horn arrangements that punctuate this album. The two lead vocalists are Fabiola and Claudemir De Silva. Fabiola was one of the most famous Brazilian samba singers from the '70s to the '90s and newcomer Claudemir is both a poet and Sambista who is just beginning to get recognition for his impressive talents. Previous Grupo Batuque albums have often concentrated on the percussive rhythms. "O TEMPO DO SAMBA" resets the balance with a set of songs that, while keeping the percussion to the fore, form an album that will not only appeal to sambistas & percussionists but anyone who digs the beat from Brazil.
