Pure Brazil Ii - The Boys From Ipanema
by Various Artists
Released: Jan 2006
Label: Universal Latino
The Pure Brazil series continues to fire on all cylinders, inaugurating the latest installment with Stan Getz's classic "Desafinado" but mining the vaults for tracks like the lounge-y "Ela E Carioca" and lesser-known acts like the Tamba Trio. While some of the material's charmingly dated, Vinicius Moraes' "Samba Da Bencao" stands the test of time beautifully.
