Nereci

Last year on the site I used the month of March to focus on the blues in some of its different forms.  I think this year I’ll be even more specific and feature the work of a single artist: Brazilian singer Djavan.  He’s been putting out quality albums for over 40 years, and I hope he continues long into the future.  His work reminds me in some ways of Stevie Wonder’s… a mix of funky pop songs and heartfelt ballads, featuring some interesting harmonic choices and always fronted by strong, mature vocals.

Let’s start near the beginning.  This song is on his self-titled sophomore album from 1978.  Its simple melody and danceable groove always put me in a good mood.

    Dude… you are awesome! I’m a New Orleans vocalist and I’ve been fascinated with his music since childhood, and I’ve been looking to do some of his tunes for a while. This’ll help me get started.
