Studio Rio Presents: The Brazil Connection, Samba & Bossa Nova Arrangements Blended With American Jazz & Soul Classics

"Welcome to Studio Rio Presents: The Brazil Connection, a lively and seamless blend of samba and bossa nova arrangements with some of the most iconic American vocal performances from Billie Holiday, Marvin Gaye, Aretha Franklin, The Isley Brothers, Bill Withers and others.

For The Brazil Connection, original multi-track masters and an all-new, state-of-the-art separation technology were used to extract the classic vocal performances. Once in hand, the newly isolated vocals were melded with brand-new, authentically arranged backing tracks from an all-star cast of Brazilian musical pioneers from the bossa nova and samba genres, including Latin Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award winner Roberto Menescal and Brazilian musical legend, Marcos Valle.

The result is a series of 12 new, refreshingly different master recordings of classic standards with superb, new Brazilian arrangements. The Brazil Connection is the brainchild of music producers Frank and Christian Berman, who had previously explored such distinct cultures for Rhythms Del Mundo, an album gathering acclaimed artists like Sting and Coldplay with the legendary Buena Vista Social Club. The album was mixed by Jerry Boys, 6 time Grammy Award winning mix engineer."
