Jorge Ben – tropical

jorge ben tropical

Jorge Ben (Jor) is one of Brasils greatest singers, if you ask me. Though you could say his music has a little too much sugar every now and then, sugar is still very addictive and so is the sound of Ben’s voice. Tropical (1976) features another version of his greatest hit Mas Que Nada, and is an eclectic collection of brasillian fusion, jazz, soul, funk and some exotica flavours here and there.

The beautiful artwork (drawing) of this record was created by Tony Wright and makes it one of my favourite latin album cover.
