Gal Costa (Self-Titled)

Year : 1969
Label : Philips
Genre : Jazz, Latin, Rock
Style : Bossa Nova, MPB, Psychedelic, Pop

In the Top of MPB recordings, this is the second 'jewel' album of Gal Costa and her second collaboration with singer/lyricist Caetano Veloso (he also lends his voice on Que Pena & Baby) featuring special guest Gilberto Gil. For this album, she recruited the arranger Rogério Duprat, the maestro who has revolutionized the Brazilian Music, often compared to George Martin, which, indeed, creates here some sophisticated arrangements using some psychedelic effects as the Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band album released two years ago. This Brazilian tapestry introduces Costa in the International Pop Music by mixing Latin grooves from Bossa Nova & Samba with Rock, Soul & Jazz Funk. Titles include compositions of Veloso, Gilberto Gil, Erasmo & Roberto Carlos, Tom Zé, Jorge Ben, the funky grooves Se Você Pensa & Vou Recomeçar plus some Bossa Nova (the beautiful Saudosismo) & psychedelic Samba songs (as Sebastiana). All tracks arranged by Rogério Duprat.
