Sebastiao Tapajos & Pedro Dos Santos - Volume Two LP
Recorded and originally released only in Argentina in 1972, the album shows an exquisite and delicate dialogue between the guitar of Sebastião Tapajos and the percussion provided by Pedro Dos Santos that generates ambiences of unusual beauty and depth. From the personal approach to Jobim’s classic ‘Samba Do Aviao’ to the energetic and fast paced ‘Ganga’, the album opening song, the mysterious beauty of ‘Rio Das Ostras’ to the cinematic moods of ‘Ambush’ (bossa meets action film music?), this Vol. 2 is absolutely wonderful from beginning to end. It is a necessary complement to the much hailed Pedro Dos Santos album Krishnanda in the collection of anyone with an interest in the most adventurous sounds of Brazil and also an essential work in the discography of Sebastião Tapajos. Includes the killer samba funk tune ‘Tornei a caminhar’.
