Marcos Valle (Self-Titled)

Year : 1970
Label : Odeon
Genre : Jazz, Latin

Marcos Valle '70 is best known as 'The Bed Album' which firmly established the maestro in the International Pop music initiate by Samba '68. Following his previous LP (Mustang Cor de Sangue - 1969) announcing a psychedelic approach and his protest years, Marcos Valle '70 incorporates Rock & Soul music, probably influenced by The Beatles' legacy and a trip across the US in the year of 1966, where he discovered the 'Black Music'. He's evolved over 10 years in Bossa Nova since his first album, Samba Demais (1963) and contributed to its success with his latin standards as evidenced the cover songs Summer Samba (Samba De Verão) or Os Grilos, before turning to fusion forms of sophisticated pop  & rhythms to brazilian accent.

Marcos, as always surrounded by his brother Sergio plus his sister Ângela, recruits the progressive brazilian rock group Som Imaginário featuring Wagner Tiso, Tavito, Luiz Alves & Robertinho Silva. Some guests & friends musicians are also present as the brazilian quartet, Golden Boys and the arrangers Leonardo Bruno, Orlando Silveira. All are supported by strings & brass ensemble.
