- The Analog Vault // Essential Listening -

From his classical upbringing, to becoming one of Brazil’s foremost jazz keyboardists and pianists, to leading Rio de Janeiro’s bossa nova movement in the 1960s - Manfredo Fest already had a storied career in his homeland. But it was not until he emigrated to America that he recorded his masterpiece, Brazilian Dorian Dream, in 1976. 

Created based on his fascination with the “modal diatonic scales of the Dorian mode”, Fest incorporated a kaleidoscopic intermingling of South American rhythms and North American jazz and funk in this vibrant and colourful manifestation of cosmic grooves. Backed by the wordless, wondrous vocals of Roberta Davis, alongside superb accompaniment from electric bassist Thomas Kini and drummer Alejo Poved - Fest imaginatively uses Fender Rhodes, Clavinet, Moog and Arp synths to propel his audacious flights of fancy into euphoric reality. - The Analog Vault
