V/A - Gilles Peterson in Brazil

V/A - Gilles Peterson in Brazil
Label - Ether (UK)
Release - 2004
Style - Brazil, Bossa Nova, Samba, Electronic, Drum and Bass, Lee Library

(from Dusty Groove):
A soaring selection of Brazilian groove -- selected by the great Gilles Peterson -- one of the best collections ever assembled by the world famous DJ! Gilles goes way past the obvious for the sets, which are divided into two discs -- one for classic tracks (many of which are actually woefully under-appreciated, in the grand scheme) and a second disc of recent tracks and remixes. The mood is really soaring and soulful throughout -- groovy sambas mingle with Brazilian jazz and soul tunes, and cheeky psychedelia-steeped 60s sunshine on the first disc. The mood on disc two is wholly reverent of the samba roots, but it's also awash in modern club grooves -- with sputtering post drum & bass, a hip hop beat track sensibility on others, and a straight driving club groove on still others!
