Mad About Records present the first official worldwide reissue of Luis Carlos Vinhas's O Som Psicodelico, originally released in 1968. O Som Psicodelico is an all-time classic and a landmark in Brazilian music. Psychedelic bossa jazz. Pianist from Rio de Janeiro, he started playing at night in the late 1950s, quickly participating in the bossa nova movement. He joined the legendary Bossa Três alongside drummer Edison Machado and bassist Tião Neto, with whom he recorded three albums in the United States in 1962. Back in Brazil, he continued to perform with Bossa Três alongside other works with Jorge Ben, Quarteto em Cy, Elis Regina, and many others. Vinhas was one of the great exponents of bossa nova. He worked as a pianist at Beco das Garrafas. He also formed one of the first musical groups of this period, Bossa Três, which, in 1966, with Leny Andrade and Pery Ribeiro on vocals, was renamed Gemini V. In 1963, he released the album The Bossa 3. In 1964, he participated in the fabulous album O Som by Meirelles e Os Copa 5. Also in 1964, he recorded the phenomenal Lp - Novas Estruturas. In 1968m he released O Som Psicodélico de Luiz Carlos Vinhas, a bold mix of jazz with the sounds that came from the tropicalist movement and psychedelia. This LP is a milestone in Brazilian music and very rare in its original edition. 180 gram vinyl in hardcover sleeve; Deluxe limited edition, numbered, with obi.
