Marcos Valle - SempreFar Out Recordings
Marcos Valle returns with another collection of samba tinged boogie tunes. "Sempre" is Valle's fifth release on the Far Out label. This vibrant recording is heightened by prominent Brazilian musicians like Asymuth bassist Alex Malheiros and percussionist Armando Marcal among others. The opener "Olha Quem Ta Chegando" is infectious samba boogie laced with funky guitar and brass arrangements. "Odissela" is a funky synth laden instrumental. "Alma" is a mellow sun drenched head nodder. Valle's vocals are in peak form and the production is in the capable hands of Daniel Maunick (son of Incognito frontman Bluey). This is another impressive release from the resurgent vocalist that will please long time fans and attract newcomers as well.
