Album Review

Verocai, Arthur – “Arthur Verocai” – [Luv N’ Haight]

lombard   8/23/2011   12-inch, International

From 1972, this self-titled album by Brazilian producer/composer/guitar player Arthur Verocai is full of groovy, funky, soulful tropical energy. While listening I felt like I was tuning in to the soundtrack for a Charlie’s Angels caper from the 1970s, so it’s not too much of a surprise to hear that Verocai crafted soundtrack music for TV (eventually becoming a music ad exec). There are lots of effects, strings, keyboards, percussion, sax, trombone, and some singing. I was especially taken by the B-side opener “Seriado,” which featured female vocals fom Celia.
