Record #335: Luiz Bonfa & Maria Toledo – Braziliana (1965)

Alright, now here’s a Stockholm secondhand record that’s actually pretty great. What I didn’t know when I picked this up is that Luiz Banfa is one of the most acclaimed samba guitarists in Brazil, and this record shows why…
Every track is fresh and light and masterfully performed. Maria Toledo shows up on a few tracks to lend her vocals, but only light Las and Dos—I don’t remember there being any real lyrics on here. But there doesn’t need to be. Luiz’s compositions speak for themselves. This is the music for your next ’60s themed party.
