A 12-inch single released in 1980 by Carioca, a Japanese Brazilian fusion group active from the 70s to the 80s. It is an advance cut of four tracks from their third album "Snooze" released the following year in 1981. The version is the same as the album, but as a 45RPM 12", the grooves are deeper and the sound quality is higher. The mellow breeze Brazilian fusion B1 is good, but the most notable feature is the inclusion of "Torpedo," one of the album's standout tracks. It is a danceable tropical fusion groove for the floor, with a minimalistic running synth bass, a horn section with impressive phrases, and a flute that dances lightly.A2: Torpade
B1: Sunrise Smilin’
