Jorge Ben‎ - Fôrça Bruta (1970)

The combination of Jorge Ben and Trio Mocotó had already produced great things when "Força Bruta" first appeared in 1970. Ben's self-titled album of the year before had reeled off a succession of Brazilian hits, including "País Tropical" and "Cadê Teresa," and made the four musicians very busy as a result.

"Força Bruta" was a slightly different album, a slice of mellow samba soul that may perhaps have been the result of such a hectic schedule during 1969. One of the hidden gems in Jorge Ben's discography, it's a wonderful album because it kept everyone's plentiful musical skills intact while simply sailing along on a wonderful acoustic groove that may have varied little but was all the better for its agreeable evenness. The songs may have been more difficult to distinguish - virtually every one began with acoustic guitar, similar instrumentation, and Ben's caressing vocals over the top - but it made the record one of the best in Ben's hearty career.
