Tom Ze - Correio Da Estacao Do Bras LP


Label: Polysom

Release Date: TBD

Tom Zé began his career together with Caetano Veloso, Gilberto Gil, Gal Costa, and Maria Bethânia. As a composer, he influenced Caetano and many others and delivered an expressive body of work through his own discography. A restless thinker, he was adept at modern erudite music experimentations, yet he was always ignored by both industry and audiences until he was discovered by David Byrne. He can be better understood through his self-coined definition: "I don’t make art, I make spoken and sung journalism."

Correio Da Estação Do Brás was originally released in 1978, just as brilliant as his earlier, more avant-garde recordings, this is more accessible and funkier and the perfect entry point into the brilliant world of Tom Zé.
