During the 1970s, Jazz legends like Miles Davis, Weather Report, and Wayne Shorter collaborated with up and coming Brazilian musicians such as Airto Moreira, Dom Um Roman and Milton Nascimento.

“With all the attention placed on them from these important jazz artists, North America became the new musical playground for a large number of these Brazilian artists,” explains Soul Jazz.

Brazil USA 70 features 16 tracks taken from this period, with music by Airto Moreira, Flora Purim, Sérgio Mendes, Luiz Bonfá, Eumir Deodato, Sivuca, João Donato.
