Sought after Brazilian sleeper back in print! Burnier & Cartier features a welcoming mix of música popular brasileira, soul, jazz, disco and boogie, and the duo handle it all with ease. You may recognize some of the music as it was sampled by Andres on his "Sing About It" collaboration with Kenny Dixon Junior aka Moodymann and on Kaytranada's Janet Jackson flip, "Alright." But that should not be the only thing drawing you in. The duo's deep arrangements and light vocal harmonies create a feeling that carries throughout the album. Original copies, if you can find them, go for absurd amounts of money so we've got to hand it to Mr. Bongo for getting this back in print. If you're a fan of Brazilian music, or just good vibes in general, be sure to check this one out. Twelve tracks in all. Released by Mr Bongo on black vinyl housed in a full color replica sleeve. Recommended.
