Brazil Classics 4: The Best Of Tom Zé - Massive Hits (Repress)

A groundbreaking collection of work from the legendary Tom Ze - and a record that really helped introduce his genius to the world outside of Brazil!

Artist: Tom Zé

Genre: South American

Label: Luaka Bop

Release date:

Although it's hard to understand from the perspective of over a decade - especially one that's seen Tom Ze rise to fame again - when this compilation was first put together, the music of Tom Ze had all but fallen off the musical map of Brazil. Ze was one of the founding fathers of Tropicalia - and unlike other members of that group, who rose to great fame during the 70s, and straightened up their act a bit - Ze always remained a committed modernist, continually inventive well into the 70s and 80s - really coming up with amazing sounds that are always compelling, challenging, and often have a nicely quirky feel as well.
