Item ID: 411979

Tom Zé is a songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, innovator and composer who was hugely influential in the Tropicália movement of 1960s Brazil. Zé is often thought of as Brazil's answer to Zappa or Captain Beefheart; a true innovator and a true artist.
Mr Bongo re-issued Zé's debut record 'Grande Liquidicao' originally released in 1968. This, his second solo album, is self-titled, and was released by RGE Discos in 1970. After the peak of the Tropicália period, Zé went into relative obscurity. It was only in the 1990s, when musician and Luaka Bop label founder David Byrne discovered an album recorded by Zé many years earlier, that he returned to performing and releasing new material. Continuing in a similar musical vein to 'Grande Liquidicao', Tom Zé is a wonderful combination of guitars, layered of percussion and tough rock'n'roll, underpinned by Zé's instantly reconisable vocal. The CD is presented in a 4-page digipack.
