Tom Zé was the first artist to sign to David Byrne’s Luaka Bop label. ’s career spans many decades, epochs and styles, but most of his fans can agree that 1976’s Estudando o Samba is one of the Brazilian’s finest hours. A kaleidoscopic mix of soul, samba, folk, funk and more, there’s good reason that this LP was included on Rolling Stone’s list of the 100 best Brazilian records. Now Estudando o Samba has been reissued by the excellent Mr. Bongo.
