ROBSON JORGE & LINCOLN OLIVETTINO
This album hit really hard at Jazz Radio Stations and Discos from 1982 to 1986-1987 because of its superb fusion of Jazz-Funk-Soul with their huge Brazilian twists, making this one, one of those "Old and Forgotten Brazilian" albums that DJs in England and Japan dig so much, but because of whatever bizarre reason, they haven't found this one yet, and they're still missing out BIG TIME.
This great album's sounds, share the same Brazilian Jazz structures of the era; sounds like Azymuth, like Banda Black Rio, like Eumir Deodato like Jorge Ben (actually in my personal opinion I consider this album waaay better and funkier than Africa Brasil by Jorge Ben).
Lincoln was at that time a highly sought-after producer, keyboardist and arranger for pretty much everybody in Brasil, from MPB artists to Brazilian Jazz; some highlight names he worked with, include: Emilio Santiago, Gilberto Gil, Marina Lima and hundreds more; and this, his album in joint-venture with virtuoso Guitarist-Bassits Robson Jorge could not be any different; full of Funk, full of wonderful arrangements, full of multiple-recording (dubbing), full of Soul and plenty of immagination.
