Description
What would some of the all-time jazz and R&B classics sound like if they had been recorded by Brazilian artists? Grammy-winning producers Frank and Christian Berman extracted the vocals from a dozen songs and recruited an all-star lineup of bossa nova musicians—including guitarists Roberto Menescal and Mario Adnet as well as percussionist Paulo Braga—to re-record the backing music, resulting in fresh and convincing updates on some familiar tunes. Marvin Gaye sounds even more effusive on a rhythmic "Sexual Healing," Carmen McRae is right at home on Dave Brubeck's "Take Five," and hearing Mel Tormé on "I've Got You Under My Skin," you'd swear that the song was by Antonio Carlos Jobim; the grooving rendition of the Isley Brothers' "It's Your Thing" offered here was prominently featured at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil. Other featured vocalists include Sarah Vaughan, Billie Holiday, Johnny Nash, Bill Withers, and Sly & the Family Stone.
