Everyone understood it when that young black alchemist arrived with a new scheme of samba which wasn’t just bossa nova, but brought with it a mix of the irresistible swing of his guitar and unique lyricism, conquering radios and record stores, and entering intohomes, streets and lives. The appearance of Jorge Ben was the last intelligent unanimity of Brazilian music. His characteristic style fuses samba, funk and rock into samba-rock, with lyrics that blend humour and satire with often esoteric subject matter. While he is probably best known as the composer of the Sergio Mendes hit "Mas Que Nada", his song "Taj Mahal" is recognizable (and was legally recognized in a plagiarism lawsuit) as the source of the melody in Rod Stewart's hit "Da Ya Think I'm Sexy?“ This album brings together 20 of the greatest songs of this Brazilian icon.
