Seu Jorge, Brazilian recording artist and star of The Life Aquatic, once called Brazilian soul and funk band União Black (pronounced OONyow BLACKee) “one of the greatest bands of the Black Rio Movement.” The thirteen member ensemble served as the backing band on the best-selling Brazilian funk record The Gerson King Combo and rose to national stardom on the strength of their James Brown and Earth, Wind, and Fire inspired instrumentals. Their debut album hit shelves in 1977, shortly after the group disbanded. Now, 30 years later, União Black are back with a brand new album recorded with Brooklyn, New York’s Embassy Sound Productions.
