A record with a gimmick – but one that we really really like! The set's a tribute to the sounds of older Brazilian porn movies, done in a style that's really faithful to the original sound of the 70s – a mode that's never too kitschy, never just easy funk – but really well-done work with a tremendously groovy sound! Producer Che originally wanted to make a compilation of the best music from 70s Brazilian pornochanchadas, but found that the source material was in such bad shape that he couldn't do the job right – so he headed into the studio with a key group of musicians who really get the original sound of the films, and who revel here in a hiply-jazzy take on older grooves! We should say that the overall sound here is more jazzy and bossa-based than some of the skunkier funk of 70s US porno – a bit warmer, with some echoes of Italian soundtrack work of the same period – but still a gritty enough groove to fit the nasty scenes going on screen! Instrumentation includes lots of keyboards and vibes, and the album's a really great one that could easily be passed off as a 70s original – but which we like even more for its honesty about its intentions. Titles include "Desejos Ardentes", "A Bailonia De David", "Helena X Aldine", "Suite Para Pereio", "Sala Especial", "Mulher Objeto", "Simplesmente Gloria", "Vera A Diaba Loira", "Pixoxo Em Lua De Mel", and "A Jeitosa Do Morro".
