Here we go again on another international release provided by Caetano Rodrigues. Actually, I think this is not exactly International, let's say it is a mix of Brazilian and International musicians assembled as a group to release this album, by the way, very hard to track information at the internet. My searches always felt on Los Angeles Transit department. It does not matter much, the little I known about it is enough to urge Loronixers to go jump on it.
This is L.A. Transit - DeNovo (1986), for Interface (Japan). Taking a DJ vocabulary, I would say this is a nice lounge jazz elevator music vibe and groove music. I think is much more, it is such a party of renowned musicians, such as Oscar Castro Neves, Jose Marinho, Tom Scott, Gracinda Leporace, Paulinho da Costa, Alex Acunha and others, making a record for fun accompanied by a trio of female voices that really makes the difference. Check personnel and do not miss this one.

Great choice! I've enjoyed this disc for years. I think the songs & musicians definitely trascend the glossy 1980's production values. This was apparently a collection of artists brought together especially for this recording. In case anyone cares, here are the songwriting credits for the 3 new songs:
Muito Mas: Regina Werneck/Yutaka Yokokura
Anything Can Happen: Kate Markowitz/John Vester/Daihachi Kojima
Summer Without You: Lani Hall!!!/Yutaka Yokokura

E com a Gracinha Leporace - que deixou sua carreira de lado e se tornou a mulher do Sergio Mendes -, cantando.

Hi, I was familiar with these Japanese guys and a story about this album. They are enthusiasts of brasilian music and wanted to create an album like Sergio Mendes without Sergio. Recently, Yutaka was touring around the world as a member or Sergio's "Timeless" band.
