First released in 1966 on Warner Bros., Marcos Valle's third album was his debut US release. An instrumental set, it is packed (if a 29-minute album can be so described) of great tunes composed by Valle with his brother Paulo. Like Antonio Carlos Jobim's own-name US debut, The Composer Of Desafinado Plays (Verve, 1963), another instrumental set, Braziliance was likely conceived as a showcase for the brothers' songwriting, with a view to generating covers by US artists. Valle plays understated piano and guitar and is often submerged beneath the florid big-band-plus-strings arrangements of Eumir Deodato.
