Streatham Island Discs No.7: Jorge Ben – Minha Estrella E Do Oriente

July 29, 2009


Jorge Ben,

This is one of the first Brazilian records I ever bought, and its still my favourite, nearly twenty years later. The credits on the back of the sleeve read like half a Brazilian football team – Joaozinho, Wagner, Dadi, Bidu, Gil, and Jorge. The flute arrangements are by the great Artur Verocai. A very special record.
