Sergio Mendes e Pelé – O.S.T. Pelé, Elenco 1978/2002

Today I have a funpost ! In an hour or so, the European ‘Futbol’
(soccer) Championship in Austria and Switzerland is about to start.
For the occasion I thought it would be fun to post some music by
the two greatest soccerplayers of the previous century. ‘Pelé’ and
‘Cruyff’. I’d say Cruyff was a good second if we speak about soccer,
but if we speak about music, I am affraid he is far from that position.
Brazilians have a nature, they’re born with music in their vains. Pelé
comes in with a great Bossa composition, backed by ‘Sergio Mendes’,
what could go wrong ? World, please have mercy on Johan Cruyff
and us Dutch people, we don’t have that sunny way. What we do
have however, is a good sense of humour, Johan Cruyff surprises
us with this 1969 Dutch Carnaval number, once again there
is no comparison.

Various Artists – Bossa Nova
Sua Historia, Sua Gente
Philips 1975

Antonio Carlos Jobim, Vinicius de Moraes and Carlos Lyra.

This Luxurous 3 LP Box Set, incl. 20 page booklet from 1975 on Philips
is a true collectors item. Bossa Nova is no type of music that we frequent
at Global Groove, it is more an item for Loronix. I offered it to Zecalouro
from Loronix when I visited him in Rio last year, with all RESPECT Zeca,
I never understood you didn’t use it. I remember going through that
wonderful book on Bossa Nova by Caetano Rodrigues and found
that it was registered there as well.
