Here we go again with another of those nice Caetano’s tricks finding gold on records that would be not taken in consideration by regular humans. Now Caetano comes with the OST of an anthological movie film from the 60’s that is all about Bossa Nova and Brazilian Music.

This is Bill Barron Orchestra – West Side Story Bossa Nova (1963), for Dauntless, the soundtrack of the musical adaptation of Romeo and Juliet set in New York City, where rival street gangs – the Jets and the Sharks – battle for territory and respect. Bill Barron Orchestra takes the lead here, making a unique record, with a nice rhythm session making use of Brazilian percussion instruments on an unusual manner. You should check this out by your own. Tracks include:

01 – Something is Coming
02 – One Hand, One Heart
03 – Gee, Officer Krupke
04 – Cool
05 – Maria
06 – Tonight
07 – America
08 – I Feel Pretty
09 – Jet Song
10 – Somewhere


Não tinha esse disco. Porém, graças aos amigos Andreas e Martoni, ele está disponível na Rádio Forma e Elenco.
