Hello, and congratulations for the great interview with Marcos. It's very important to mention this great Brazilian musician all the time.
But there's something I would like to remark about the interview. Most of what's been written and published about Marcos mentions his works from the sixties and the seventies and his Far Out Recordings era recordings. But very, very little has been said about his Boogie Funk days in America (where he lived once again between 1975 and 1980) where he collaborated with Leon Ware, Deodato and Chicago, and in Brazil. Upon returning home for good, he released two killer LPs and two 7-inch singles with fantastic boogie tracks. By the way, they were his best-selling records in Brazil.
Marcos does not talk about this period of his career very much, but he's a very gifted boogie man and many people should know those tracks.

It's no wonder Marcos doesn't talk much about his "boogie" days as alluded to by the above fan. I don't think I've ever seen so much cheese and mediocrity -- both musically and video-wise -- jammed into two youtube postings in my life.

I agree with you Alexei.

I was hoping to hear something about "Vontade De Rever Voce" or Marcos Valle (1983) in this interview, regardless of what Jery thinks.

The stuff he made in the '80s was a great synthesis of American R&B/soul/disco from that era.

If you're a fan of Earth, Wind, & Fire or The Barkays, you'll love that stuff
