    SALVADOR, DOM

    Som, Sangue E Raca

    [engl] 
    This isn’t just a seminal album. It is an estuary. All the black rivers that would form Brazilian funk/hip–hop flow through it. Led by Paulista pianist Salvador Silva Filho – Dom Salvador – "Som, Sangue, e Raça" from 1971, one year after the explosion of Tim Maia on the scene, catalyzed the bossa nova and jazz background of its leader with the rhythm and blues of its members like saxophonist Oberdã Magalhães, nephew of samba–enredo master Silas de Oliveira and future leader of Banda Black Rio, who since the group Impacto 8 (which had, among others, Robertinho Silva on drums and Raul de Souza on trombone) had already been trying to reconcile MPB with Stevie Wonder and James Brown. Add to all this a mixture of samba, Nordestino accent, and even the black side of the Jovem Guarda represented by the authorial presence of Getúlio Cortes (older brother of Gerson King Combo, our James Brown "cover") in ’Hei! Você’. Alongside these elements and the presence of Rubão Sabino (bass), who still called himself ’Rubens’, drummer Luis Carlos (another member of Black Rio), the record enlists the trumpet and flugelhorn of symphonic musician Darcy in place of the original Barrosinho (yet one more founder of Black Rio), who was traveling during the recording but would end up being a leading force of the band.
