lange hat uns der wiener elektronikmusiker klaus waldeck – zuletzt bekannt durch sein legendäres album »ballroom stories« (2007) – warten lassen. die vorfreude ist groß und waldeck hat auch gleich eine Überraschung für uns parat: sämtliche titel wurden auf italienisch eingesungen - und zwar von der fantastischen neuentdeckung. der wiener sängerin heidi moussa-benammar (»la heidi«).
waldeck selbst möchte gran paradiso als eine »spaghetti & western« produktion bezeichnet wissen: »gran paradiso. das ist einerseits hommage an den legendären sound des italo-westerns – andererseits spürt es auch den sentimentalen klängen des italienischen canzone nach - jedoch stets mit der nötigen ironischen distanz.« »italienisch... schon die sprache klingt nach musik«
der sound des albums trägt waldecks unverkennbare handschrift. gelegentliche einsprengsel von tango. dub und reggae runden dieses abwechslungsreiche sommeralbum ab.
alles in allem: ein entspanntes sommerliches album. das man auch gerne im herbst und winter hört. um sich daran zu erwärmen.

a great 70s album by os novos baianos – a wonderfully youthful group that was one of the bright spots in brazilian music after the tropicalia years. the band had a style that mixed folksy percussion with honest personal songwriting. plus occasional touches of elements gleaned from the larger influences in brazilian rock at the time. the album has a sound that’s a lot more intimate than later work. with some especially great work on guitar and bandolim. and great production on the band’s vocals.
remastered reissue on 180 gram vinyl.
rootsy samba and hipper 70s mpb influences – all filtered down into a really unique little groove! back in these early years. novos baianos had an inventive sound that was really a standout in 70’s brazilian music – a sense of earnest. open-handed music making that was something of a legacy from the tropicalia years – but one that also carried with it some of the more hippie-dippy influences in the brazilian underground of the early 70s! the style here is a bit sparer and more acoustic than on some of the group’s other records – often comprised from samba percussion and guitar. but occasionally augmented by more electric instrumentation. as well as some folkloric flute!
