SONG OF THE DAY Edu Lobo – Viola Fora De Moda

PrimaryThis is the first time that I’ve ever heard of Edu Lobo & only the third time I’ve listened to today’s song, but I really like the dreamy, wistful feel that pours out of it & the taste of sunshine this leaves behind!

Born in the early 1940’s, Eduardo de Góes Lobo, a.k.a Edu Lobo, is a Brazilian Bossa Nova singer, guitarist and composer. Recording from the early 1960’s, he has spent the last four decades writing and recording his creations. Throughout the 60’s he made a name for himself as part of the Bossa Nova  movement, taking inspiration from Brazil’s folkloric and reginal roots. This unique approach took what was becoming a more generic mainstream, jazz-influenced Bossa Nova sound into a post-Bossa Nova sound.

Over the years he has celebrated an extensive release of albums and 45’s, working over the years with the likes of, Toots Thielemans, Marcos Valle, Elis Regina, Sylvia Telles, Sergio Mendes, Antonio Carlos Jobim, Milton Nascimento, Maria Bethânia, Gilberto Gil, Gal Costa, Caetano Veloso, Monica Salmaso, Sarah Vaughan, Earth, Wind & Fire, and Caterina Valente.

Viola Fora De Moda is taken from his 1973 Missa Breve LP, which was issued on Odeon Records. I can’t tell you what the rest of the album is like just yet, but have pasted a copy of it below so that I/you can check it out. With each listen, Viola Fora De Moda continues to grow on me……

Listen above and see what you think. Enjoy!
