Refazenda by Gilberto Gil
Released: Jan 1975
Label: WM Brazil
The first of his trilogy of records for Warner Bros. (Refazenda was followed by Refavela and Realce), this 1975 release finds Gil effortlessly dropping some of the breeziest rock of the decade. Even the most mediocre track is elevated by Gil's opalescent voice, but there are a number of great tracks here, including "Ela," "E, Povo, E" and the minimalist "O Rouxinol." While not uniformly brilliant, Refazenda still exudes an effortless cool most musicians only dream of.
