Brazilian scat-singing performer Ed Motta takes his new record to the park

The album has roots in american music, as usual, but is by far the most brazilian album ever recorded by Ed Motta. Groovy from top to bottom, lyrics go walking through day-by-day life, with twists of alternative realities, such as deep disco feelings and space-y effects brought up by the musician.

It was supposed to be nothing impressive to american audiences for they lived through the seventies and made home to Motown artists. Maybe that's the magic. Ed is a huge fan of pretty much everything that came out of hitsville. What he does is take that at its best and throw it in a bag full of brazilian vibes.

Ed Motta is late great Tim Maia's nephew, though he claims no relationship - music wise - whatsoever. It is undeniable, though, that his uncle's work is smothered somewhere between the old school beats and the african culture enviroment on Ed's music. Which shouldn't be regarded as something bad at all, since Tim Maia is one of the greatest artists of all times and partly resposinble for bringing brazilian tunes, mysticism and soul music together.

Piquenique bears nothing really new. It is more of a safe place with a certain shot at a well established flock of fans.
The good part is Ed Motta keeps the bar high and spices things up a little down there.
