Jorge Ben - Samba Esquema Novo LP


180-Gram Virgin Vinyl Limited Edition Jorge Ben's debut album Samba Esquema Novo, which met with great acclaim from fans, and encouraged the Philips label to capitalize on the success with immediate follow-up albums. Ben's characteristic style fuses samba, funk, rock and bossa nova with lyrics that blend humor and satire with often esoteric subject matter. His hits include "Chove Chuva", "Mas, Que Nada!" and "Balança Pema" (all included here), have been interpreted by artists such as Caetano Veloso, Sérgio Mendes, Miriam Makeba, Soulfly and Marisa Monte. The song "Mas, Que Nada!" was his first big hit in Brazil, and to this day it remains the most played song in the United States sung entirely in Portuguese. Outside of Brazil, the song is better known for it's cover versions by Sérgio Mendes and the Tamba Trio. It has also been reinterpreted by prominent jazz artists such as Ella Fitzgerald, Oscar Peterson, Dizzy Gillespie and Al Jarreau. 180-GRAM VIRGIN VINYL - THE COMPLETE ALBUM + 5 BONUS TRACKS
