Life and career

Raul de Souza Raul de Souza Sweet Lucy 1977 rfos do Loronix

American producer, composer and pianist, George Duke, was brought in to produce de Souza's first and second album releases for Capitol in the mid-1970s, Sweet Lucy and Don't Ask My Neighbors. In 1979, Souza released 'Til Tomorrow Comes, an Arthur Wright production with many of the top soul session players in Los Angeles. This recording was devoid of any jazz and was an effort to jump aboard the disco/funk bandwagon. Colors, his earlier album for Milestone, is available on CD as part of the Original Jazz Classics series from Fantasy Records.


In the early 1960s, he was a member of Sérgio Mendes’ original Bossa Rio group. In the late ’60s, a second, more pop-oriented Bossa Rio group was led by keyboardist Manfredo Fest (Mendes was the producer of their two albums).
