Lab Overview

Beautiful 1972 album from Astrud, and the first of her career made up predominantly of her own compositions. (She was also the producer, while Deodato contributed the arrangements.) The sharp samba-funk of tracks like "Take It Easy My Brother Charlie," "Zigy Zigy Za" and "Gingele" showed that Gilberto was much more than a novelty, with instrumentation and arrangements on par with Brazil's much more respected songwriters of the time such as Jorge Ben. The non-Astrud composed tracks like "General Da Banda" and "Make Love To Me" aren't too shabby either. Comes in a reproduction sleeve. 10 tracks total.
