Arthur Verocai is a prolific and criminally underated Brazilian conductor / composer / arranger. He has penned songs for samba tropicalia royalty such as Gal Costa, Jorge Ben, Azymuth, Ivan Lins & Tim Maia but a host of other smaller groups and projects.
However, his greatest achievement is his self titled debut album which is one of my desert island records and is one of the most intimate and experimental brazilian albums out there. DJ Nuts can officially be named as Brazil’s numero un record digger has put together an exquisite mix of all Verocai credited songs that range from the obscure to the national anthematic. This is a truly special mix that makes one appreciate Verocai’s collaboration to music and touches upon all styles of musica brasileira. A true hommage to O Mestre Verocai!
