    This is way off-topic, but I am trying to find a link to the FZ interview that was posted here a while back wherein FZ was talking politics and described the right-wing religious contingent of the Republican party with the phrase “Republicans In Name Only”.

    I know it was posted here, but I can’t find it. If anyone can provide a link I’ll be eternally grateful (really!)

    I don’t know about you, Barry, but I fell in love with Brazilian music the first time I heard this:

    What is it about Brazilian women that makes them so HOT?

    The interview in question, “Zappa On Censorship” was posted back on Sunday, May 3rd, 2009. The part of the interview wherein FZ describes “the right-wing religious contingent of the Republican party with the phrase “Republicans In Name Only”” appears at 5:15 of the first video clip. Here’s the link:

    Ah, I get: “This video is not available in your country due to copyright restrictions.” What tune/singer are we talking about?

    When “Trance Fusion” came out, “Infinito Particular” by Marisa Monte was in very heavy rotation in my car – that’s a great CD. Those two are kind of stuck together in my mind forever now. I can only listen to “Infinito Particular” after the sun goes down.

    For me, all comes back to Zappa. My first introduction to Brazilian music came with George Duke’s 1979 ‘Brazilian Love Affair’. I really dug his tune, “Up from the Sea It Arose and Ate Rio in One Swift Bite”. Of course, my love of Duke’s music began much earlier with his recording with Ponty, and his albums Feel, The Aura Will Prevail, Faces In Reflection, and Face the Music. By the time I heard Marisa Monte for the first time, I was well primed.

    ‘Festival’ (1977) by Santana also contains a lot of Brazilian flavored music (along with the Afro-Cuban) and it’s worth checking out, …as is anything by George Duke!

    Anyone interested in Brazilian, or MPB, music would really enjoy the song “Carnavália” from the self-titled 2002 album by the short-lived Brazilian trio of Marisa Monte, Arnaldo Antunes and Carlinhos Brown called Tribalistas:

    and

    “Green Grass” by Cibelle from her 2006 album, The Shine of Dried Electric Leaves:

    Don’t forget Flora Purim, whom George Duke worked with frequently in the mid-to-late ’70s. Her albums “Open Your Eyes You Can Fly” and “That’s What She Said” have a heavy George Duke presence, though both are more fusion than purely Brazilian in style.

    Also, staying with Flora Purim, she appears with her husband on Santana’s Borboletta album, which has some Brazilian influences and on ‘Yours is the light’ from ‘Welcome’.
