I was excited this past weekend to pick-up a used original copy of Luiz Bonfá's 1972 Brazilian psych-funk classic Jacaranda. This funky record features many great tracks including "Apache Talk", "Gentle Rain", "Jacaranda", and "Danse V", that nicely brings together Brazilian grooves blended with seventies psychedelic funk, and jazz. Ontop of featuring the Brazilian guitarist Bonfá, the record also includes some other notable musicians including Ray Barretto, Idris Muhammad, Airto Moreira, Stanley Clarke, and was arranged by Eumir Deodato. Jacaranda was certainly one of those records I had been wanting to hunt down for quite sometime, therefore it's good to see that after this past weekend, I can now cross it off my forever growing wish list. Enjoy!
