Saturday Download: some confusion.

It has been kindly pointed out to me that today is sunday. I was living in the complete certainty that it was a saturday. This means last night was not a friday night. Kind of changes my view of things.
Anyway, it also means i accidentally skipped a saturday download, so without further ado:

Smokey & Miho - Live on KCRW's Morning Becomes Eclectic (July 25, 2002), 192kps Mp3, 38'39", approx. 55Mb (yep, it's a big one)

This one's quite self-explicative.
All you need to know is that Smokey(who has played guitar for Tom Waits and Beck, among others) and Miho(who has been and probably still is a member of Cibo Matto and Gorillaz, besides having worked with anyone from John Zorn to the Beastie Boys) perform together as a tribute to Baden Powell and Vinicius DeMoraes's historical Os Afro-Sambas album. Which is one of the most beautiful things ever recorded, and everybody should go out and track down a copy, and since this humble website isn't worthy of hosting the mp3s of that album, we'll make do with the next best thing.

Smokey and Miho are:

Miho Hatori - vocals
Smokey Hormel - acoustic guitar, vocals


Joey Waronker - drums
Mauro Refosco - percussion
Sebastian Steinberg - bass
Jon Birdsong - horns
Ganda - Backing vocals

1-Ocean in your eyes (Smokey and Miho)
2-Consolacao (Baden Powell/Vinicius DeMoraes)
3-Tempo de amor (Baden Powell/Vinicius DeMoraes)
4-Capoeira (Jorge Ben)
5-Orixa & Yemanja (Baden Powell/Vinicius DeMoraes)
6-Canto do caboclo pedra preta (Baden Powell/Vinicius DeMoraes)
