Toque De Cuíca (a Discobody incredible high) by Discobody published on 2012/09/21 18:23:38 +0000 Toque De Cuíca (a Discobody incredible high) Airto Moreira is a renowned jazz drummer/percussionist raised in São Paulo, Brazil, who started his professional career at 13 years old. Since then he has played along Miles Davis, Joe Zawinul, Weather Report, Chick Corea, Eumir Deodato, John McLaughlin, Al Di Meola, Santana and many others. He has also recorded twenty albums from 1970 till 2003. “Toque De Cuíca”, originally performed by Azymuth, is taken from his “Touching You...Touching Me” LP, released in 1979. George Duke, Herb Alpert, Alphonso Johnson and Marcus Valle are among the names who participated on this record. This is one track that takes me high whenever it’s on and since Airto’s version clocks at only 4min I could not resist but work on it and highlight all its fascinating rhythm section. I rearrange it presenting a new intro, adding more cuíca drums and blending constantly beats and melodies throughout the cut. Enjoy it to the max!
