Jorge Ben – Cinco Minutos (1974)


Jorge Ben

To make the point that sound means more to me than lyricism, I understand 3 words in Portuguese. Jorge Ben released his album A Tábua de Esmeralda in 1974, by which time he was on fire. I overlook the brilliantly-named ‘Minha Teimosia, Uma Arma Pra Te Conquista’ (‘My Stubbornness, My Weapon To Win You Over’) in favour of the album’s last song ‘Cinco Minutos’ (1 & 2). Obrigado (3) Jorge Ben; you know how to create an unbreakable rhythm.
