This week I bring to you a local Seattle, Washington band called Papaya released in 1976 on the Wolf records label. Another one of those records i've came across numerous times over the years and always threw it to the side. I finally decided to give it a listen one day only to discover the cut "Favela" a hynoptic samba jazz groover complete with a heavy weight brazilian break. A sure fire floor filler and probably one of the best examples of Brazilian fusion out there. It seems to no longer be under the radar as i've had many friends and djs ask me for a copy over the past year.
