João Donato – Cala Boca Menino (1973)

Trawling through the three volumes of the excellent “Blue Juice” compilations released in the mid 1990s, I stumbled upon this stone cold classic!

João Donato is a Brazilian jazz and bossa nova pianist who has released numerous LPs over the years since 1956. This track is taken from his 1973 album Quem é quem.

A beautifully understated funk groove is gradually supplemented by horns and then a rather baffling call and response set of vocals to reveal the perfect organic whole. The only flaw? It’s only two and a half minutes long! Just put it on repeat!
