Robson Jorge & Lincoln Olivetti (1982)

A bit of a classic here.

There are six percussionists on this album and that is important because the whole album is about rhythm as, I guess, Brazilian music in general is about. It’s certainly integral anyway. Great tracks include ‘Raton’ and ‘Jorgea Corisco’.

I love this album, but give it a listen and see what you think?

Roby Duke: Not The Same (1982)

The word masterpiece is banded around a lot these days and probably unjustifiably in a lot of cases. However, this album is one of those that could very nearly claim that title. It is as near to perfect as you are likely to get for the style.

It’s CCM, there’s no secret about that, and for the most part I don’t like listening to CCM albums, especially when it’s rammed down your throat. Rob Mehl’s ‘Taste And See’ album is an example. This however is one of the few exceptions.
