Album Review

This is the CD reissue of the opening LP by Banda Black Rio, recorded in 1977. The instrumental band, dissolved in 1980, had an excellent work of electric samba-funk fusion, with hot brass arrangements, a good percussive section, and good solos. This first album brings the hit "Maria Fumaça," included in the homonymous soap opera. The album also has good performances of Luiz Gonzaga's "Baião," Edu Lobo's "Casa Forte," and Ary Barroso's "Na Baixa do Sapateiro," along with the band's originals.
