Tropical Sounds of Lady Zu

A few months back, I picked up a rare used copy of a 70's era Brazilian compilation that featured all the usual Brazilian musical greats like Gal Costa, Jorge Ben, and Gilberto Gil. Now most of the time these artists I just mentioned would of been the reason why I decided to purchase the record, however on this occasion that wasn't the case. The track I was most interested in was by a female singer named Lady Zu, which I previously had never heard of, and the track was "A Noite Vai Chegar". With one listen I was pretty much hooked, as the song, originally released in 1978, has an overall feel-good tropical disco groove that reminds a bit of a Dr. Buzzard & The Savannah Band, with of course being sung in Brazilian. With that kind of combination of a groove, it was safe to say that I picked the compilation and the song has been a personal favorite ever since. From the little bit of research that I've done it looks to be that Lady Zu has released a few albums that tend to blend towards a Brazilian disco sound. If "A Noite Vai Chegar" is any indication as to the kind of music Lady Zu has released, hopefully at some point in the very near future, I will be able to hunt down some more of her music. Enjoy!
