Toquinho – Toquinho (1970)
My vinyljunkie crush with Mr. Bongo Records continues. I’m pretty sure this means I’ll want to track down their entire catalog. This Toquinho album is more traditional sounding, incorporating acoustic guitar with all those amazing Samba sounds that enchant us. It kinda reminds me of the soundtrack to “Black Orpheus”, at times. Filmed in 1959, Black Orpheus was the film that first introduced worldwide audiences to Brasilian Carnival and Bossa Nova music. It won the Palme D’Or at the 1959 Cannes Film Festival. The soundtrack was composed by Brasilian legends Antonio Carlos Jobim and Luis Bonfa.
Yeah, Brasilian tangents happen. I’m high and happy, forgive the rambling. This music takes you places…
