This mix focuses on the funkier sounds of Brazil: jazz fusion, samba soul, and disco-funk. At the time, I was really just scratching the surface of Brazilian music—things that had previously appeared on compilations, for the most part. Consequently, there are plenty of classics (some well-known songs by Azymuth, Marcos Valle, Paula Lima); but there are also some lesser-known records you might not have heard before. As always, all vinyl. Aprecie!
If you're in the mood for more Brazilian Wax, check out the Far Out Records Special I recorded around the same time and Fevereiro, the follow-up to this mix.
