João Donato - A Bad Donato [Verve 'By Request' Series 2023 Reissue]

Third Man give the nod to this 1970 step outside of the norms of Brazilllian Bossa Nova, led by some blazing electric guitar.
On this 1970 album recorded in Los Angeles, Donato departs from his Brazilian bossa nova roots, incorporating an eclectic, and electric, mix of funk, fusion and psychedelic pop. The result is a groovy Fender Rhodes driven set, highlighted by “The Frog” and “Lunar Tune”.

This Verve 'By Request' title is pressed on 180-gram vinyl at Third Man in Detroit.
