Abstract Index playlist Mar 22/06

Weather must be getting nicer... grooves are getting jollier... Exhibit A - Luiz Eca. Vampisoul has done it again, retrieving a long lost artefact of abstract Brazilian samba soul for the now generation. Apparently a company called Lazarus did it first, and that's where the attached image is from (the worst thing about the Vampisoul edition is its fuzzy artwork), but this should reach more ears.

Eca was the leader of avant-bossa masters Tamba Trio who disintegrated at about the time this album was recorded in 1970. This album features all of Eca's favourite tricks: stop-on-a-dime changes, massed voices, and ever changing grooves. These characterized the Tambas' latter years (their Samba Blim set produced by Creed Taylor has just been reissued) and this album takes several baroque steps further. Notable participants include percussionist Nana Vasconcelos at his very best, and vocalist Joyce. The album is a hyperactive blend of Eca's piano, horns, vocals and percussion with a more pronounced samba soul feel than the Tamba Trio had. This album remained unreleased until 1978, when it was originally issued in select Mexican hotels, which was the primary business of the label owner. This will be the swizzle for many summertime nights to come...
