Dorival Caymmi-Cancoes Praieiras

Here's some sounds to enjoy while watching the leaves fall. If you're into tropicalia of any sort, you'll find that Caymmi probably influenced whatever band/singer you're a fan of. With a career spanning over 60 years, this guy was definitely one of the most important Brazilian musicians of all time. Most of his stuff is worth checking out, but there can be moments where the over produced sounds muffles the great songs. Here, however, we find Caymmi doing it solo. And for some reason, this cover always weirds me out.
