Viva Brasil - Viva Brasil
A killer album of breezy bossa-fied jazz from the West Coast! Viva Brasil worked for many years as part of the underground Brazilian scene in San Francisco - home to smaller combos similar to themseves, and bigger names who often recorded on Fantasy Records.

This (first issue) CD features the massive club track "Skindo-Le-Le" (also on the classic Luv N Haight comp Feeling Good), but there's a full album's worth of great cuts, all with the cool breezy west coast Brazilian feel that was the group's trademark style.

Whilst partly electric, the core sound is like a floating acoustic one with jazzy influences, often with Ruben Moura's vocals to the fore. Joe Henderson guest stars on the track "Iemanja", and the LP includes the tracks "O Bode", Jocafi's evergreen "Voce Abusou", Bosco and Blanc's brilliant "Ronco Da Cuica" and "Menina Danada".
