Let’s keep yesterday’s pace, when I released to Loronixers the anthological first album recorded by Banda Black Rio as the second post of the day. We are making the same with this second post, showing the first album of a very important musician, listed on several albums available at Loronix. Let’s see.

This is Chico Batera – Ritmo (1979), for Som Livre. Chico Batera debut LP with several special guests. When I took this album for a first hearing, I was ready to hear something very different, such like Brazilian Jazz or Samba. However, Chico Batera and his guests deliver something very different. Ritmo is a great Funky album with vocals, guitars, distortion, etc. really surprising. I don’t have any experience with further Chico Batera solo albums, but I think this session is one of a kind. Tracks include:


Chico Batera
(arrangements, drums)
Sérgio Dias
(from Os Mutantes)
Tavinho Bonfa
Robertinho de Recife
Terezinha de Jesus
Lee Marcucci
and the special guests Fagner, Dom Beto, Carlos Dafe, Joao Bosco, and others…
