Studio Rio - The Brazil Connection (LP, Compilation)

Regular price $24.00


Studio Rio Presents: The Brazil Connection is an album of well-known songs arranged for samba and bossa nova. The recording was published in digital formats, on vinyl record, and as a compact disc in 2014 by Legacy Recordings. Song versions were arranged and performed by Studio Rio, a band of Brazilian musicians specializing in the bossa nova and samba genres. Notable members include Roberto Menescal and Marcos Valle. The album's release was timed to coincide with the FIFA World Cup Brazil in June 2014, and the collection was included in ESPN's coverage of the 2014 world cup. "Studio Rio Presents: The Brazil Connection" was also published as part of the 2014 official FIFA album titled "One Love, One Rhythm." The album's twelve tracks include the vocals of Bill Withers, Aretha Franklin, Marvin Gaye, Billie Holiday, Sly & The Family Stone, The Isley Brothers, Mel Torme, Nina Simone, Johnny Nash, Dave Brubeck with Carmen McRae, Andy Williams and Sarah Vaughan. The album was produced by Frank and Christian Berman who used separation technology to isolate the vocals from master recordings. They then blended the vocals with new instrumentation.
