Epic Brazilian 45 set: The Brasileiro Treasure Box of Funk & Soul
This epic set of seven 7-inch records of rare Brazilian tracks from the always-great Cultures of Soul is a major treat. This is what vinyl reissues is all about. Expertly compiled by Greg Caz and Deano Sounds, The Brasileiro Treasure Box of Funk & Soul contains funky music from iconic musicians like Antônio Carlos & Jocafi, Toni Tornado, Emilio Santiago, Tom Zé, Celia, Dom Salvador E Abolição, and Trio Mocotó among others. The box also contains a poster and booklet.
DJ/historian Greg Caz sums up the project: “The central theme of this compilation is funky nuggets from the first half of the ’70s. We believe this compilation displays its own particular sense of logic, and that these songs ultimately all sound fantastic together, just like they would on a great night with your favorite DJ. Regardless of one’s familiarity with artists like Antonio Carlos & Jocafi, Os Incríveis, Toni Tornado or Celia, the material on these 45s speaks its own truth and justifies its inclusion here. Many of these songs were originally available as singles, while others were taken from albums, but all are guaranteed to find their way into many DJ boxes and playlists.”
