Mix up a caipirinha, sit back and relax.

No one channels Copacabana quite like original Rio beach boy Marcos Valle. After all, who else stirs jams as sun-drenched as ‘Estrelar’ or ‘Mentira’?

But his place in the history of Brazilian music goes further; amongst heads, Valle is more discerningly hailed as ‘the renaissance man of Brazilian pop.’

“Infiltrating pop, bossa nova, samba, delicate psychedelia, jazz and funk, Marcos Valle has consistently shown a dogged determination to transcend the traditions and structures of bossa nova, whilst never veering away from the movement’s inherent, fundamental spirit,” begins our review of Brazilian’s incredible six decade career.

Here, fellow country-man Fabricio D.Vyzor supplies another tribute to the man’s enormous body of work, mixing records from his early pysch and rock-influenced days in 1970 right up to the romantic bossa-pop of his most recent 2010 record for Far-Out.
