5:16...Static Album cover
There is a report that Rio's historic Copacabana Palace will undergo a $15 million renovation...and is selling off antique furniture from as early as the 20's.
This group...Os Ritmistas...echoes the sound of old Rio...when the Palace was THE hotel for the world's rich and famous.
Especially...the 60's...when Rio was cheap and easy going...even if the military dictatorship ruled.
The song...'Fora Do Ar'/Outside Air...features mellow male voices...and an instrumental arrangement that could have come from a Frank Sinatra song.
You can almost hear waves crashing on the beach at Leblon.
