Banda Black Rio - Maria Fumaça

Year : 1977
Label : Atlantic
Genre : Jazz
Style : Jazz Funk, Disco, Samba

"Maria Fumaça" is probably one of the best Brazilian Jazz Funk album ever recorded, recommended by Gilles Peterson himself ! Banda Black Rio was formed in 1976 by saxophonist Oberdan Magalhães & trumpeter José Carlos Barroso ("Barrosinho"). Both were members of Abolição, a group which accompanied the pianist Dom Salvador from the late 1960s to the early 1970s. The band is also supported by The Percussionists Of Rio De Janeiro featuring Luna, Nenê, Wilson Canegal & Geraldo Bongô. Often compared to Kool & The Gang and Earth Wind & Fire, the band rather plays a sound close to The Headhunters style, the backing band of Herbie Hancock during the seventies, and includes some Brazilian music elements. In 1978, the band was recruited as backing band for Time Maia on "Tim Maia Disco Club" and Caetano Veloso on his "Bicho Bale Show". Titles includes the Samba Funk "Marai Fumaça", the killer song Mr. Funky Samba and the Brazilian classics "Casa Forte" of Edu Lobo and "Na Baixa Do Sapateiro" of Ary Barroso. All tracks Arranged by Cristovao Bastos.
