Although ignored by critics and the public during its initial release in 1972, Arthur Verocai’s balmy and brilliant self-titled debut LP has finally found the recognition it deserves in the 21st century. Revived thanks to sampling from hip-hop crate diggers like MF Doom and Madlib, this resurrected masterpiece is now considered one of the greatest works in the history of Brazilian bossa nova, as it should be. A shimmering saudade of tropicalia, samba and American funk - buoyed by Arthur Verocai’s sumptuous arrangement of a massive 20-piece string section alongside flourishing guitars, pianos, basslines, vocals, brass, synthesisers and percussions - it’s no wonder this coveted Continental release (re-issued by Mr.Bongo) has become something
of a holy grail amongst collectors.
