Tamba 4 - We And The Sea We And The Sea
Jazz Audiophile - LP SP 3004 Speakers Corner
Long Out-Of-Print 180gm Reissue Housed In A Gatefold Cover. Superb Brazilian Jazz. LP Appears New, Unplayed. "The Tamba 4 Made Its North American Debut With An Often Adventurous Recording That Stretched The Boundaries Not Only Of Bossa Nova But Of Producer Creed Taylor's Soundworld At A&M. The Erudite Composer/Pianist/Organist Luíz Eça Was The Band's Intellectual Spark Plug; His Cross-Genre Borrowings Would Eventually Pave The Way For Present-Day Latin Piano Virtuosos Like Chucho Valdés And Gonzalo Rubalcaba. Bebeto Played Lively Jazz Flute And Bass, Drio Handled Bass, Guitar And Percussion, And Ohana Was The Extraordinarily Flexible Drummer. Along With Their Classical Pretensions And Straight-Ahead Bossa Nova Swinging, The Group Dabbles With Voodoo-Like Incantations That Could Weave A Seductive Spell On Tunes Like "Lemanjá" And "Chant Of Ossanha." Their Take On Jobim's "O Morro" Is A Lengthy, Complex, Structured Composition With Eça's Piano Frequently Summoning Forth Ravel, Gershwin, And 20th Century Dissonance, Finally Bursting Into Ecstatic Brazilian Swing At The Close. Bebeto Also Sings In Silky Mellow Portuguese On "Flower Girl," And The Foursome Provides Its Own Shadowy Vocal Support On Several Tracks. Impeccably Recorded At Rudy Van Gelder's Studio In New Jersey, This Recording Ought To Be High On Brazilian Jazz Collectors' Want Lists." Richard S. Ginell, AMG.... more details

Tamba 4 - Samba Blim Samba Blim
Jazz Used - LP SP 3013 A&M / CTI
Beautiful 1968 Gatefold, Heavy Vinyl, Brown Label Original, Small COH. “Apparently The Extended Searchings Of We And The Sea Didn't Translate Into Much Radio Airplay, So Creed Taylor Had The Tamba 4 Limit Their Excursions To The Usual A&M/CTI Bite-Sized Portions On Its Follow-Up LP. Though The Voodoo Feeling And Classical Erudition Of The Previous Album Is Lost, The Listener Does Get A Seductive Series Of Melodic Vignettes, By No Means Repetitive In Mood And Usually Alive With The Infectious Groove Of The Bossa Nova. Luiz Eca Has Less To Do On The Keyboard But Contributes Some Sensuous String Charts To A Few Tracks, And The Group's Chanted Vocals And Bebeto's Sexy Bass, Alto And Standard Flutes Become The Group's Signatures. The Repertoire Ranges From Brazilian Standards Like Joao Donato's "Know It All" And Edu Lobo's "Reza" To North American Pop Like "Watch What Happens" And The Tijuana Brass Flip Side "Slick.Samba Blim Doesn't Draw You In As Completely As Its Predecessor — The Tunes Are Over Before You Know It — But It Remains Intensely Musical, Catching Real Fire On "Weekend" And "San Salvador."
