On this Bem Brasil with Will Crawford, We will enjoy one of the most amazing double albums ever produced in Brazil: Clube Da Esquina! Originally a Brazilian music artists collective, mainly from the Brazilian state of Minas Gerais, It is also the name of this double album from 1972.
Featuring Milton Nascimento. and with orchestrations from Eumir Deodato and Wagner Tiso under the conduction of the renowned clarinetist/composer/orchestrator Paulo Moura,
It mixes rock and roll, progressive rock, bossa nova and jazz styles, with Brazilian country music and classical music influences. The Beatles and the Platters were also an important influence on Clube da Esquina. Together with Tropicália, Clube da Esquina is usually regarded as the Brazilian musical movement that achieved the greatest international resonance in the post-bossa nova period (beginning in the late 1960s and early 1970s).
