Valle is a Brazilian singer, instrumentalist, songwriter and record producer of the highest order. His roots lie in bossa nova and he was one of the youngest talents in the scene, extensively touring the USA and residing there for many years. Valle's music crosses touches many styles including samba, rock, soul, jazz, boogie and disco. Signed by Odeon in 1963, he recorded ten studio albums for them between 1964 and 1974. He also recorded for Verve, Warner and Som Livre among others.
'Mentira' is a re-record of his own song 'Mentira Carioca' - released four years earlier by Odeon - and appears on his 1973 LP 'Previsao Do Tempo' on Odeon. 'Me Libertei' is the second track that Mr. Bongo has re-issued by the one and only Toni Tornado, master of Brazilian funk. His career began as Tony Checker, lip syncing to rock 'n' roll hits and touring extensively outside of Brazil. Whilst in New York he met Tim Maia and became involved in the Black Rio movement. Toni also worked with Ed Lincoln and Antonio Adolfo amongst many others. He had a successful acting career and starred in many soap operas. It appears alongside 'O Journaleiro' on his sought after BR-3 LP from 1971 on Odeon. 'Me Libertei' has never been released on a 7".
