Friends From Rio 2 (FARO 029 - 1998)

Many among you do know the Farout records label. And if you don't then you will. This modern brasilian-oriented label (that sometimes reissues some old brasilian albums from the past) was created 15 years ago and recorded albums for multi-instrumentalist Marcos Valle, vocalist Joyce, Celia Vaz, Azymuth (their album "Carnival" is a classic), etc ...
On 1998 was released the "Friends From Rio 2" album whose goal was to bring together some of the finest brasilian musicians of this new generation. On this album you can find some nice pieces including fender rhodes like "Dona Cora", by keyboardist Fabio Fonseca. This song begins quietly then goes mid-tempo and then takes an explosive samba rhythm with nice percussions.

Musicians :
Fabio Fonseca: fender thodes - C.A.: drums - Andre Rodriguez: bass - Reginaldo Vargas: various percussions
