Braziliana - Jack Parnell & His Orchestra (1977)


 
Sadly a bit too late to celebrate the excellent Rio Olympics, this is a fine British-made tribute to the Brazilian latin sound.
 
Mostly instrumental, but with some tracks featuring nice vocals from Madeline Bell and Simon Morton, this album has been out there before, but not for some time.
 
Well worth a listen, it captures the samba and bossa nova sound of the era perfectly, with a recording I am very pleased with, the vinyl sounding in excellent condition!
 
I hope you enjoy it and please comment if you do!

    1. Sadly not, but looking through the track listing, I do have all the individual tracks and could put it together and post it?

  3. Just picked this record up at a local charity shop. Well worth the quid I paid for it. Jack Parnell was , up until he died, playing every Sunday Night in a jazz trio at a pub in Thorpe St. Andrew, just outside Norwich ( the pub has now been re-opened as an Indian Restaurant, quite a nice one , too ). The record also features quite a few British Jazz heavyweights doing their stuff.

  4. The past several years I'd been exposed to UK jazz and easy listening music from the 60s & 70s and become an ardent fan. Thanks for posting this, Mark.
