Wado - Samba 808

Samba 808 is the new album by Wado, who after 5 previous albums and 10 years of career, has decided to make it free for download. According to its press release, after conversations with various labels, he couldn’t come up with a fair deal and decided to give it away at his site. As the title suggests this is samba with electronics, but with it’s contributions and partnerships with the cream of current MPB (Zeca Baleiro, Chico César, Curumin, Fabio Góes, Marcelo Camelo and André Abujamra amongst others), it is a mixed bag of styles and ideas with even a wonderful take on “Elas Estão Descontroladas”.  I saw Wado play quite a few years ago, and it was OK, but I would gladly pay and go and see him again performing this album as he has definitely matured as a song writer and arranger. Again, recommended listening for the state of current MPB
