Inacio Zatz 'Zatz' (Dabliu, 2000) A striking, surprising, and quite pleasant new example of the Brazilian mix-n-match method of music making... The album opens on a potentially troublesome note -- a piercing, BB King-style, electric blues riff, the sort of thing that in the United States has signified a muscle-bound, moribund musical genre ('urban blues') that has completely lost it's creative edge for the last few decades... Naturally, when you hear someone in Brazil pick up a twang bar and wail away, your first instinct is to run and hide -- yet far from sucking, Inacio Zatz is a gas. For one thing, he's not a blues musician... at least he's not limited to the style. Actually, he doesn't seem to be limited to any style: this is an impressively eclectic record, incorporating bossa nova, afro-bloco percussion, Asian traditional and various shades of rock with equal ease. A few overly-goofy moments, but on the whole, well worth checking out! Joe Sixpack,slipcue.com The first Nu Brazil (MANTDCD217),Unionsquaremusic label was sufficiently well received by the public and retailers alike for Manteca, the record label, to commission a second. Great, I thought, now I'll get the chance to slip in all those tracks that, for whatever reasons, couldn't get a look-in first time around. Brazil has it's own takes on club-dance styles such as lounge, broken beat, hip hop and soulful house. They're all here too, as are some of the more rock-influenced and roots bands that have emerged in the last ten years from the Indie scene: Nacao Zumbi and Inacio Zatz are prime choices, with Inacio's stupendous slice of samba-rock magic pointing to the fact that much of the current heat in new Brazilian music originates from rock-rap-ragga crossovers and fusions.
