Negro é Lindo is a worthy successor for the great album he had released in the previous year. Jorge now takes his sound further toward a tropical Soul, a style that was his unique invention. But there are also still those hypnotic Samba grooves.
Clearly, Negro é Lindo belongs to those master albums Jorge Ben bestowed to the world. With a good handful of records, Jorge Ben enriched Brazilian Pop and beyond, international Pop music. Negro é Lindo is one of them.
