Trio Mocoto Beleza! Beleza!! Beleza!!!
- Words: Velanche Stewart
- Label: Ziriguiboom
Brazil‘s Trio Mocoto has been rockin‘ steady since way back in the 1960s. Influenced heavily by American soul and rock-while always blending their native touches into the mix-the formative genres all come to light on Beleza! Beleza!! Beleza!!!. The production is a bit too slick, but the musicians are tight and the energy spirited. Even when things get to be a bit too poppy, the disc is too lively to cast aside; it never takes itself too seriously, acting as a worldly diversion from what ails thee.
