Top Customer Reviews
1)Ha Dias-Unusual instrumentation,a nearly-reggae rhythm makes this song particularly catchy.Luca Mundaca's silky voice gives a jazzy flair to the melancholy lyrics about loneliness.
2)Previsao-A joyful song with a retro flavor.BossaCucaNova makes this sound like a Sergio Mendes&Brasil 66 original.
3)Agua de Coco-Another song with unusual instrumentation&danceable rhythm makes this catchy.Very funky.
4)Mariana-This song has a reggae rhythm (making it samba-reggae,perhaps?)Since it is a simple tune,it will stick in your memory.
5)E Depois-BiD (who collaborated with the late Brazilian music master Suba)collaborates with Seu Jorge on a song that sounds like a theme to an '80s primetime drama like "Dallas" or "Falcon Crest."
6)August Day Song (King Britt remix)-I had the "Tanto Tempo Remixes" album loooong before I got "Brazilian Lounge." I don't get it why Putumayo chose to borrow from Six Degrees (which is great with world techno,while Putumayo is great at world acoustic).This is a great song;it's on a Putumayo compilation 5 years after it was released (Bebel Gilberto has been famous for awhile now).Great remix,"funkified" according to the "Tanto Tempo Remixes" liner notes by Philadelphia DJ King Britt.
7)Saudade Fez Um Samba-Another happy song with sad lyrics.The title translates as "Sadness made a samba."
This compilation is a must for any Brazilian collection!
I found this album to be very relaxing. Pleasant for those semi-quiet times. Wouldn't have it at breakfast but more like a brunch or lunch music. Also I'd find it pleasing to listen to at a cafe over coffee. Music is smooth, and lyrics are pleasing and somewhat entrancing. Beat stays mellow but picks up mildly with some songs. I find this to be another great edition to the vast library of Putumayo music. If you like relaxing music with a touch more spunk then the average types then this'd be a good pick (IMO). I hope this post was helpful to you.
Have a nice day.
