If you are into the music of Marcos Valle then you are in for a fantastic treat! Valle Tudo – Discografica De 1963 A 1974 features some of the most amazing music ever recorded. Every record in this massive package is a delight – from the early bossa sides, to the more complicated singer/songwriter material, to Valle's incredibly rich experiments with baroque pop! Valle is certainly one of the greatest Brazilian artists to ever enter a recording studio. Not only does the set include 10 rare albums, but each CD comes with bonus tracks – plus the whole thing also features a previously unreleased full album from 1966. Albums include Samba Demais, O Compositor E O Cantor, Braziliance, Viola Enluarada, Mustang Cor De Sangue, Marcos Valle (1970), Garra, Vento Sul, Previsao Do Tempo, and Marcos Valle (1974) – plus The Lost Sessions from 1966.
Marcos Valle was the Renaissance man of Brazilian pop, a singer/songwriter/producer who straddled the country's music world from the early days of the bossa nova craze well into the fusion-soaked sound of '80s MPB. Though his reputation in America never quite compared to contemporaries like Caetano Veloso, Milton Nascimento, Gilberto Gil, or even Tom Ze, Valle is one of the most important and popular performers in the history of Brazilian pop.
This album has prominent boogie, soul and funk influences. These had been present in Valle's work since the beginning of the 1970s and would be permanent influences on his music, also being solidified by his work with Leon Ware and Chicago.
Rosalia De Souza confirms her place in a long line of Brazilian contemporary artists as she carries on a rich tradition of great songwriting. de Souza's delightful voice charms when singing alongside superstar Marcos Valle on "Que Bandeira" and persuasively interprets "Vivo Sonhando" by the Maestro Antonio Carlos Jobim. Between these two internationally known columns of Brazilian music, she moves gently along with either Bossa or Samba, thanks to Roberto Menescal's solid hand ( and composer of the album's title song) Menescal's guidance pushes De Souza to interpret a more evocative and spiritual song such as "Jogo De Roda" by 'mestre' Edu Lobo, whose tones are ancestral.
Love, Strings and Jobim is a 1966 album by various Brazilian artists who play new Brazilian songs by various composers.

Jobim does not appear on the album except as a composer. The original Brazilian title of this album is "Tom Jobim Apresenta" and it appeared on the Elenco label.
Cline racconta minuziosamente, lentamente, come un tempo davanti al fuoco, con il ritmo che era degli aedi e dei menestrelli. Racconta una unica, interminabile battaglia durata dal 2350 avanti Cristo, quando un faraone annientò i cananei, fino ad oggi, alle guerre di Israele. Unico il luogo: la pianura di Jezreel, vicino all’antica Megiddo, una piccola valle intrisa di sangue sulla strada che portava, da tempi immemorabili, dall’Egitto all’Eufrate. …
