Someone please wake me up when this record is over.
This is such rubbish, especially the second part.

Radu, I say this with the deepest respect for both your page & the greatness that Brasilian music is. Brasil has one of the richest musics on planet Earth. Full of VITALITY & HIGHLY EVOLVED RHYTHM & MELODY. I really feel that Gilles does not really show this magnificent culture to it best advantage.
The 70's were a golden age for recorded music. One could really take a little bit of time to focus on just that decade it is such an amazing time of output for MPB & Samba. Warmly, JT

Hi, JT, don't worry, there's no problem at all. You're free to leave whatever comment you like.
As for Brazilian music, I do like, of course, the magnificent sounds of the 60's and 70's. But I also want to give my readers an idea of what contemporary Brazilian music is like. Like you, I prefer the "classics", but I think that Gilles Peterson has done a good job in showing what music the young Brazilian people is playing (and listening to) today.
