Luiz Eca was the late genius at the piano and behind the string arrangements. Bebeto was the multi-instrumentalist on sax, bass and flute. Elcio Milito was the drummer. Both Eca and Bebeto contributed inventive vocals for the original Tamba ensemble, a distinctive mix of instrumental trio with vocals.
Legends say Creed Taylor would not have liked these Tamba 4 sessions results! However Japanese A&M staff discovered Tamba's material within the label's files and issued their 2 CTi albums for the 40th year celebration of Bossa Nova what made them big hits among those who sample Bossa Nova.
'We and The Sea' [Nos e o Mar] - the title song was a smash hit in Brazil both as an intrumental by Tamba Trio and as the famous ultimate vocal rendition of Leny Andrade, also backed by Tamba.
'Moca Flor' was another Tamba smash hit in Brazil featuring the distinctive vocal solo by Bebeto.
'Dolphin' is the beautiful Luiz Eca composition widely covered in the USA by Bill Evans (available in his Complete Verve Recordings), Stan Getz, and Jacky Terraisson among so many others. 'Iemanja' is also a beautiful composition by Luiz Eca.
Here you'll also find some Bossa Nova standards like "O Moro' and 'Consolacao', both Tamba smash hits in Brazil.
If you've never heard this quartet, you need to. It did for Brazilian music then what Suba did for it in the past decade.
This album features O Morro which is a rich and unusually challenging piece of music for listeners used to music that makes them feel like they are on a beach somewhere.
Kudos to Verve for bringing it back. Highly recommended. Now how about Samba Blim?

I bought this because it contained the "original" recording of "The Dolphin". The song's composer, Luiz Eca, is one of the members of Tamba 4. Read morePublished on December 6, 2012 by Music Lover and Nit Picker
This album is a MUST for every jazz collection. I first heard it in '68 and it just keeps getting better with time.Published on February 10, 2010 by DJ
The Afro-Brazilian gods of the sea and storms are appeased by this musical offering. Lemanja (track 3) with its fishermen's chanted hymns is a must-hear. Read morePublished on September 9, 2000 by Alex Sydorenko
