The album was awarded Best Foreign Album by Japanese Jazz Journal.
S.P 73 was recorded with the full Campinas Teatro Municipal Orchestra, the same orchestra that featured on 'Hareton + Meta EP'. It is a wonderful, deep soundscape of filmic MPB melodies, strings, organ, woodwind, drums and vocals. A record that sits alongside Verocai's self-titled LP perfectly. Huge tip!
Hareton was born in Bauru and grew up in Campinas. S.P 73 is his first LP he worked tirelessly with his right man and brother, Ayrton, was a theatre director. The 'Hareton + Meta' EP was written and recorded for one of Ayrtonï's productions Hareton wrote the music, Ayrton the lyrics which was given out at performances.
About the album: 'S.P' is Sao Paulo. 73 is the year that it was recorded.
The back cover photo was taken of the window of his apartment. The intention was to create a screenplay
in different settings and have short intervals between tracks almost none with songs with lyrics and
instrumental songs as well. The LP originated from the participation in a festival of TV Tupi, with the musical production called Irracional. The track 'Papa Mama' is based on a drum rhythm of the same name.
