Another hit from Far Out Recordings. The mix of songs is perfect for a Saturday afternoon by the pool, or an evening on the patio with a pitcher of mojitos. I can feel the warm summer breeze wafting across the beach. Thank you Amazon for making this sampler available.

Still tough for me to get into reviewing MP3's, but so be it! This is a little sampler of music from UK based label Far Out Recordings, highlighting some of the works of their artists. Far Out Records is one of my favorite labels as they have a fantastic reputation for releasing quality works by classy musicians like Joyce, Azymuth, Marcos Valle and Os Cariocas along with bringing out fresh material with acts like Sabrina Malheiros (Alex Malheiros of Azymuth's daughter), Democustico, Clara Moreno and many others. What you have here are eight tracks of different Brazilian musicians in the Far Out Records catalog.

And it's a fair compilation of samba, and time flies! It opens up with Grupo Batuque's "O Tempo Samba", a little nostalgic considering the title was used on their "Far Out 100" release from 2005. It's a track featuring Grupo Batuque's trademark samba fusion beats and chant like lyrics. It's followed up by Sabrina Malheiros's "Eira Nem Beira", which is a nice song that quickly skips around with a touch of African ambiance. The production on the title really is terrific, and the flute work equally impressive. However true to the term 'sampler', the track seems to fade out all too quickly! Clara Moreno's "Brincando do Samba" was reminiscent of her recent style, which is classy arrangements on all of her songs. The apple doesn't fall far from the tree! Her mother, Joyce, is featured with "London Samba" is proof, as her voice skips along to the rhythm. Marcos Valle's "Poweride" is also a sweet title that glides, perfect for any summer evening. Although to be honest, I preferred Roc Hunter's remix. Azymuth and their own Jose Bertrami both have solid cuts featured here too.

When I listened to the tracks, I couldn't believe it's free. Brincando De Samba and London Samba are standouts. Superb.

Brazilian music was foreign to me but very soon became familiar, easy to appreciate. The price is right as well! I would a few more in the next few months.
