Grittings, urthlings! Been a while, but don't fear: I'm still kickin' harder than a crazed baby in the womb. Here's a chill samba-funk instrumental from Marcos Valle. Great bell-ish Rhodes melody, with a splash of UFO Moog.
Legendary Samba diva Clara Nunes fills this crowd-pleaser with all the indicators you'd want from a peak-era Carnaval jam (probably because she helped define that sound). There's something about this type of heavily-panned stereo mixing that gets me going as well.
