Jorge Ben

More summertime goodness for ya, here's Jorge Ben's '71 album Negro e Lindo or "Black is Beautiful" which is a lesser known album if you're familiar with Jorge. This album was released during the exciting Tropicalia movement, focusing more on sweeping acoustic sounds and Jorge's amazing voice. This album was also arranged by our friend Arthur Verocai who was posted a while back. I'm also throwing in Jorge's track "Cuidado Com O Bulldog" as a bonus- it contains a some great interchanging guitar freak-outs with a typical Jorge Ben laid back sound. A must have, enjoy...
