Here is a another "underratted" cat, in the game!!

Claudio Madeiros for Nucleus USA from 1975.
Killer Brazilian funky fusion set on an obscure little label out of San Francisco.
Big tune on this is "Soar" but rest is just as good with that lovely bubbling clavinet sound on most of the tunes.If you like early 70s Azymuth,Donato,Valle and the like you'll love this.
Dusty Groove review(where it's now unavailable):
A fantastic batch of jazzy grooves featuring Claudio Medeiros and Victor M of the group Made In Brasil, plus other associates from the Bay Area fusion scene of the 70s! The record's got a strong mix of mellow tunes and funkier ones with touches of Brazilian jazz and CTI fusion swirled together in a San Francisco sunny mode. The set includes the incredible groover "Soar", which has nice moog bubbling through a jazzy midtempo groove and features many other great tunes like "Cachaca", "Generous", "Green Olives", "Grape Woman", and "Rotation"

Word of Advice

We don't upload any of the links in this blog because, their are too many floating around anyway, and it's a waste of time. Some do it for points, while some do it for money. Well we don't do it that way here, as long as we can share and let you know what's cracking with those albums we're happy. These guys don't get a lot of exposure, and for damn sure some of them will never graze the mainstream air wave. By the way not sure if anyone actually read this stuff, but if you made it this far, The Beat Dangler thanks you.
