Review by Mellotron Storm
3 stars CHEIRO DE VIDA were an instrumental trio from Brazil who released one studio album along with this live record which was recorded in 1988 but not released until 2000. They are listed here under JRF and the closest reference points would be EXSIMIO and MAR DE ROBLES although I prefer the music of those two bands over what these guys offer up. Still the instrumental work from this band is flawless and the bass player impresses me the most. I've heard more prominant bass than what we get here but not such fast playing as is demonstrated relentlesly throughout this live album.

"Africa" builds until the guitar solos over top of the chunky bass and drums. "Levada" is more of the same. It does settles after 2 minutes before kicking back in at 3 minutes. "Vox Populi" has prominant guitar along with the usual in your face bass. "Blue" is the first real mellow tune. Killer bass more than half way through. "Beep Bop" is an uptempo bass driven track. The guitar leads before 2 minutes then back to that bass led groove. "Vinheta" is a short but raunchy piece. "Dark Funk" is killer stuff with fast paced bass. "Intro" is complex but short. "Funk Indiano" is fast paced while "Rush" features more crazy bass. "Guerra" ends it with some welcomed laid back sections.

Again this is impressive music but it doesn't measure up to music I already have in a similar style.
