Osmar Milito - Bossa Nova...(E Deixa O Relogio Andar !)

Year : 1972/1971
Label : Epic/Som Livre
Genre : Latin Jazz
Style : MPB, Bossa Nova, Jazz Funk

Osmar Milito featuring the Quarteto Forma (as backing vocals), Marcos Valle & strings ensemble. This french edition of the first gem produced by Osmar Milito (originally released on brazilian label Som Livre), was sold under the "Bossa Nova" name instead of "E Deixa O Relogio Andar !". Osmar has produced here a masterpiece in sideline of MPB genre, a subtle condensed of Latin Jazz & Pop music (perfect synthesis of the early Brazil 70s), to the same eclecticism level that the Garra album by Marcos Valle (obviously, his presence is not surprising). Although Osmar Milito hasn't recorded a lot of albums, he remains one of the most prominent arranger & composer, and can be considered as one of the greatest jazz pianists from Brazil, who made his fame in collaborations with various North American artists among others, Liza Minelli, Sammy Davis Jr., Tony Bennett, Sarah Vaughan, Randy Brecker or Benny Golson. Starting as professional in 1964, Osmar was especially a popular sideman/arranger for Bossa Nova artists such as Elis Regina, Nara Leão, Maria Bethânia, Gilberto Gil, Chico Buarque, Jorge Ben or Vinicius De Moraes. In the seventies, Osmar participates to the performing shows of the Sergio Mendes group across the USA, continues to work alongside leaders of brazilian pop music and composed several soundtracks (whose the best known "Selva De Pedra - Trilha Sonora Original Novela" - 1972). Titles include Jazz standards (Cantaloupe Island, What Are You Doing For The Rest Of Your Life, Mercy Mercy Mercy), Valle's cult songs "Que Bandeira" & "Garra", Chovendo Na Roseira by Jobim and Rita Jeep by Jorge Ben.
