New Bebo Best & The Super Lounge Orchestra on This is Lounge
Well, it may have been released a few weeks ago, but I am finally getting around to adding some tracks from the Chin Chin release, Trip to Rio de Janeiro from Bebo Best & The Super Lounge Orchestra.
Once again, Bebo mines the South American samba and bossa nova groove, by way of Veneto, Italy.
Here at This is Lounge, three tracks were chosen to be added. This is a good thing since usually only two are added at a time. But majority ruled that a third track be included since there was just so many wonderful tracks to choose from.
First up is La Caleta, roughly translated from Spanish, it means The Cove. The intro sound of the Hammond organ over the samba beat leading into the piano solo, takes one straight to the beach in Rio. Punctuated with whistles and the Latin scatting, you know you're listening to the authentic South American sound.
Looking Out The Sea is a romantic slow samba, about a longing, a love, a romance.
Finally, the third pick for inclusion on the playlist, is Toca o Coracao. It grooves along at a medium samba beat, again accentuated by loungey keys and that scatting so much a part of the Brazilian sound.
Now I will never divulge which track was chosen as the third one. As you'll hear, they are all special.
So tune into the station to listen, and go to iTunes to buy.
