The Tropicalia movement (see below) used to be what people meant when they were talking about MPB, but now it's almost an absurdly far-reaching phrase that musical poseurs use when they want to sound cool. (Just watch how often I use it!) Non-Brazilian Lusophone Music - Brazil wasn't the only place the Portuguese colonized.

What’s with all the System of a Down lovers here? Dixieland (through 1920s), also called "Chicago jazz," transpired when musicians fled New Orleans for Chicago in search of new opportunities and less oppressive social conditions. This was driven in large part by record company reissues of early jazz classics by the Oliver, Morton, and Armstrong bands of the 1930s. Kid Ory, King Oliver and Jelly Roll Morton soon became the larger-than-life care-takers of Jazz.

Dude I love Tool, System of a down and so many more... Third and Fourth generation Country with lots of steel guitar twang, dobro, wailing fiddle and soft yet straight-forward 4/4 back beats that keep audiences clappin' on 1 and 3. Excellent- well paced and building up of knowledge and skills. It’s the best written song on this album and a song for our times obsessed with becoming and with change. “Find you” could be about a man or a woman but it could also be about social peace; the ambiguity of its lyrics makes it phenomenal to sing along to.

One of the things I always liked about Sly Stone is that he seemed to like "covering himself." The second one was Morton's troubles with the mobsters who ran the nightlife of Chicago: Morton's band was only a studio band because he was not welcome in the city's clubs.
