Marcos Valle (Self-Titled)


Year : 1970
Label : Odeon
Genre : Jazz, Latin
Style : Bossa Nova, MPB, Psychedelic Pop

Marcos Valle '70 is best known as 'The Bed Album' which firmly established the maestro in the International Pop music initiated by Samba '68. Following his previous LP (Mustang Cor de Sangue - 1969) announcing a psychedelic approach and his "protest years", Marcos Valle '70 incorporates modern Rock & Soul music, probably influenced by The Beatles' legacy and a trip across the US in the year of 1966, where he discovered the Afro-American sound & the psychedelic 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 sophisticated pop  & Jazz Funk. Marcos is always surrounded by his brother Sergio, but also his sister Ângela and  the progressive brazilian rock group Som Imaginário featuring Wagner Tiso, Tavito, Luiz Alves & Robertinho Silva including the legendary vocal quartet Golden Boys. Titles include finest pop tunes as "Quarentão Simpático" & the protest song "Dez Leis", new recording of "Os Grilos", the typical latin song, "Esperando O Messias" feat. Golden Boys, the waltz "Pigmalião", "Ele E Ela" (sampled by Jay Z on Thank You from The Blue Print 3 in 2009), and the experimental baroque suite "Suíte Imaginária". All songs written by the duo Marcos/Sergio except Pigmalião with Novelli & tracks 2, 7, 9 written by Marcos Valle only.
