ROSS ELLIS 12" jacket

In 2010 LA’s Now Again Records dropped a 12″ of  Brazilian singer-songwriter Seu Jorge backed by the group Almaz, comprised of drummer Pupillo, guitarist Lucio Maia and rounded out by bassist and composer Antonio Pinto. Like the majority of the label’s output, the collaboration felt both immediate and timeless, especially their rendering of Roy Ayers’ “Everybody Loves The Sunshine“, originally found on Ayers’ 1976 lp of the same name.

The Almaz project, which initially began as a soundtrack collaboration, ended up yielding an entire album of covers spanning Brazilian classics and beyond, including the aforementioned Ayers to re-interpreting Kraftwerk’s “The Model”. Dip in, below.
