Jorge Ben is a name that any lover of Brazilian music will be very familiar with. He is widely regarded as the James Brown of Brazilian music and is famed for writing the Brazilian anthem Mas Que Nada'. For the duet 'Carolina, Carol Bela' he teamed up with the singer and guitarist Toquinho. Toquinho is best known for his collaborations, as composer and performer, with Bossa Nova poet Vinicius de Moraes. 'Carolina, Carol Bela' featured on the album 'Toquinho' by Toquinho. It was originally released in 1970 on the small independent Brazilian label, RGE. This version is the first time it has been reissued as a 45. The song was sampled by DJ Marky and XRS for their drum & bass track 'LK' (V Recordings, 2002). This went on to be a huge chart hit across the world, and a number one hit in the UK.
Joao Donato is a Brazilian jazz and bossa nova pianist. He has collaborated with many of the greats of Brazilian music, including Tom Jobim, Astrud Gilberto and Gilberto Gil. He was one of the few Brazilian artists who went over to perform in the States during the bossa nova boom of the late 60s. The song 'Ara' was originally released on his seminal album 'Quem é Quem', (EMI, 1973), an album that is full of great tracks and was considered as one of the 100 best albums in all times by the Rolling Stone magazine.
