Soul Jazz Records/Universal Sounds Original Brazil Classics series.
Legendary Brazilian vocalist Elis Regina's stunning 1969 landmark London album.
An amazing, unique and highly successful mix of bossa nova, MPB, swinging funky orchestral grooves and more as Elis Regina hits the London studio scene, with UK musical direction by Peter Knight (arranger for Scott Walker). ‘Elis in London’ is a stunning and unique album mixing Brazilian and late 1960s British music sensibilities, from the queen of Brazilian music.
Featuring definitive versions of classic tunes such as Edu Lobo’s ‘Upa Neguinho’ as well as songs by Jorge Ben, Tom Jobim and Menescal. Elis Regina is perhaps the greatest talent ever to come out of Brazil - and this unique album was recorded at the height of her career.
Brazilian musician legends Wilson das Neves, Meirelles and Antonio Adolfo alongside an absolutely on-fire set of Britain’s studio musicians creates one of the most successful meetings of musical worlds.

Their is also a very collectable limited edition (1000 worldwide), exact-repro vinyl edition with hardback American-pressed sleeve and heavyweight 180 gm vinyl.
