Sao Paulo born Toni Tornado was considered the Brazilian James Brown by many.

His career began as ‘Tony Checker’, lip syncing to rock 'n' roll hits and touring extensively outside of Brazil. Whilst in New York he met Tim Maia and became involved in the ‘Black Rio’ movement. Toni also worked with Ed Lincoln and Antonio Adolfo amongst many others. He had a successful acting career and starred in many soap opera’s.

‘O Journaleiro’ is a tearing funk track with tough drums and big vocals. Taken from his hard to find and expensive to acquire debut LP, ‘BR-3’, released by Odeon Brazil in 1971.

This track has never been released on 7”.


Som Tres was a jazz ensemble formed by legendary Brazilian musician César Camargo Mariano, who also formed Sambalanço Trio.

Cesar's collaborations with many of Brazil's most important singers, notably Wilson Simonal and Elis Regina, have brought him worldwide acclaim; the historic 1973 album Elis and Tom, made with Antonio Carlos Jobim, features Cesar as arranger, pianist and musical director.

Som Tres recorded eight albums between 1966 and 1971. ‘Homenagem a Mongo’ is taken from the sought after ‘Som 3’ LP from 1969 on Odeon Brazil. It has never been released on a 7”. [info from label]
