Soul Jazz, what a label. The systematic reissuing of music from around the world may not always produce consistant gems but it certainly can expand your mind.

I picked this up after a decade long dalience with Brazilian music. For the most part I was drawn into Brazilian sounds by samba. The languid rhythms and sweet melodies snared me like a hook. Seeing capoeira performed on tv and on the street captivated me. A martial art set to music? Wow.

Thankfully Soul Jazz had me covered with an album of samba and capoeira music to draw me into this culture.
