 When you hear the first track by Moriah Plaza, you'll think that this is nuts, fantasticly warped bossa nova, but nuts. A one off!  But no! There's a whole album of the Moriah Plaza sound on Batov Records!

Batov Records are not known for the Brazilian affliations but Tel Avivians(?) Tamir Chen and Moosh Lahav are currently based in Berlin and where they've already been involved with some leftfield dance pop jazz. 

Now teamed up with poet/singer Cecilia Erismann and multi talented Flavia Annechini (both from Brasil).
So bring in soume elevator muzak/lounge ('Lagoon de Merim' is so kitsch that it's post kitsch in the ultra lounge.

Annechini founded the Tropical Disco Club and I hope they Moriah Plaza are the house band as this project is equally inspired for the Tamir's mother who was the hotel piano bar resident at the Sheraton Moriah (see cover photo) a building/location that looks as lifeless as water in the Dead Sea that it overlooks.

'Samba Mooch' has got a touch of 'One Note Samba' (Samba de Uma Nota So) about it and you can almost hear the Rat Pack trying to join in for another appearance in thier best tuxedos.

Big with the BBC 6 Music big boys already an it's bound to get picked up by all the Latin-jazz dance guys so don't hang around and get this ordered today.
