I would personally like to say that Jorge Ben is like the James Brown/Al Green/Stevie Wonder of Brazil. Without saying his style is reminescent to the R&B artists that I have mention, In Brazil, he is embraced just like the R&B artists that I've mentioned. Although he has been around since 1963, his music is becoming more popular as the decades go by. Although he was a phenomenon in the 1960s and 1970s, he is more known than he was back then. This is mainly because more people worldwide are becoming familiar with his music. Once people listen to his work, they become addicted, like I have.
Forca Bruta is a record forever transformed Brazilian music with its unique blend of samba and soul
Forca Bruta" is Jorge ben's 7th studio album that was produced and released in 1970.
This is one of Jorge Ben's five greatest albums, alongside with "O Bidu/Silencio no Brooklin", his self-titled 1969 album, "Sacudin Ben Samba" and "Negro e Lindo". This album was done the year after Jorge ben decided to go back to his home recording company (Philips/Mercury).
Of all of the albums Jorge Ben has done, this one is just as free-spirited and exuberant as his two previous albums ("O Bidu/Silencio no Brooklin" & "Jorge Ben" ).
