I don't know how he does it, but he does it again. Rare groove, Brazilian tracks from label vaults to put together the "Viagem" series. I admit that when this series started, I thought it may last just one or two volumes. But fast-forward a very quick 5 years, and here we are at number 5. Full credit to the Far Out Records crew for knowing that when they have someone with such a depth knowledge of Brazilian music, like Nicola Conte has, then they have to use it. Mr. Conte, for those new to him and the series, is an Italian musician, producer and DJ who is gifted in all three. He usually releases albums of his own on Idizioni-Ishtar/Schema records in Italy, or Blue Note Records. Here, he works with London based label Far Out Recordings, occasionally focusing on specific music labels on the scene at the time.

This, Viagem 5, doesn't disappoint. It starts out well with the wonderful Quarteto 004's "Vou Te Contar". Others may know the song by the title 'Wave'. It has a real cool, harmonized barbershop singing on the boardwalk of Copacabana feel to it. Lovely intro. Sweet vocals follow with "Onda Quebrando" and then Breno Sauer Quartet's take on the Jorge Ben classic "Take it Easy My Brother Charlie". There's something about the original I still prefer to this one here, but it's still rather good. Nicola dug up a pretty obscure version of "Vim De Santana", which I remember from Quarteto Novo. Indeed, it may have even featured in an earlier Viagem album; I like the song but the transfer of the song is admittedly off somewhat, either because the vinyl itself is that worn/old or the stylus was dirty.
