Various Artists Gilles Peterson: In Brazil
- Words: Stacy Meyn
- Label: Ether
Swiss precision runs hot as Gilles Peterson trumpets old and nu-skool Brazilian music. The first disc, Cl·ssico, hits seminal '70s with "Black Rio" funk fixture Wilson Simonal, Golden Boys yummily twanging-up Baden Powell and Vinicius De Moraes, and Mario Castro Neves and Samba SA samba-ing our asses. Djavan's lusciously ubiquitous summer anthem "Serrado" bubbles and Sergio Mendes and Brasil '77 still do it in '04. Disc two, Da Hora, heads lovingly DL with non-Brazilians alike, like UK breakbeat mistress Patricia Marx and 4Hero, and London's Spiritual South. Delectable slo-mode remixing of Milton Nascimiento percolates, and Brazilian nu-jazzer Bruno E. (Marx's hubby) ekes out da juice. Floor-filling!
