Album Review

Trio Mocotó got their start as a backing band for Jorge Ben in the 1960s, and are generally credited with inventing the hugely popular "samba rock" sound that developed over the course of the following decade. Beleza! Beleza!! Beleza!!! is their second album since getting back together in 2001, and finds original members João Parahyba and Nereu Gargalo joined by singer and guitarist Skowa. The resulting sound is an effervescent combination of new and old, with new versions of songs from the group's old book and guest appearances by such current stars as Zuco 103 and Apollo 9. You'll be hard-pressed to find a single track here that won't get you up and dancing around within several seconds, but there are especially wonderful moments on the brilliant "Dingue Li Bangue" (which features Max de Castro and Wilson Simonhinha as well as Apollo 9) and on the relatively soft and subdued "De Hoje Nao Passa." And of course, Zuco 103 bring their own distinctive brand of youthful exuberance to bear on the simmering Brazilian funk of "Onde Anda o Meu Amor." Great, great stuff.
