Italian jazz man Nicola Conte is internationally known for his sophisticated productions on labels such as Blue Note and Universal, as well as touring the world with his floor-shaking DJ sets. The passion and knowledge that Conte brings to the DJ booth is perfectly represented here in this collection. This Viagem 10" is the third volume of a five part vinyl only series dedicated to bringing some of the rarest and most sought after samba jazz and bossa gems to a new generation of record collectors. The majority of these tracks have only seen the light of the day on small 7" runs in 1960 Brazil and they're next to impossible to find unless you're willing to part with some serious cash. His rare collection, lovingly curated by Italy's king of swing Nicola Conte, is introduced by the deep, oscillating organ of Brasil 40 Graus 'Copa 70', just a matter of moments before breaking into the compilations fundamental groove. Dalmo Castellos 'Faro de Hora' with Edu Lobo's inspired strings and broken samba rhythm, sheds light on the political history of the era through it's socially conscious lyrics, while the gloriously mystical harmonies of O Triangulos 'Voce Que Nao Vem' highlight the fantastically beautiful vocal performances on the compilation. Darker Afro rhythms and mesmeric atmospheres on tracks like Carlos Sodre's 'Samba de Negro' and Luis Carlos Sa's 'Canto Do Quilombo' are interwoven with jazz melodies to create a nostalgia laden tour de force and journey deep into the lost sonics of Brazils musical history and jazz identity. Viagem 3 is an essential addition to any connoisseurs collection and brings to the listener an unparalelled experience of music that inspired the foundation of Far Out Recordings.
