January 29, 2016
Because it’s Friday.
Irrepressible digger Gilles Peterson has brightened up this dismal January day with close to 70 minutes of deep cuts and rarities from a recent trip to Brazil.
With his producer hat on, Peterson was in Brazil working on the follow up to Sonzeira’s Brazil Bam Bam Bam album released on Brownswood in 2014, but still found time to dip into the record shops and markets of Recife and Rio for a selection that touches on greats like Milton Nascimento, Elis Regina and Sergio Mendes, among some more obscure cuts.
Listen to the fruits of his labour here:
Check out the tracklist and some of the ace sleeves below (Note Rogério Duprat, who looks uncannily like a bespectacled, moustachioed Peterson). Saúde.
