AOR Mix for Wax Poetics by Ed Motta

“I was never a teenager. I was born fifty years old,” said Ed Motta in a recent interview. “And this is the music I grew up listening to: Christopher Cross, Steely Dan, Doobie Brothers, Alessi Brothers, all these things. And in the last five years, I’ve become obsessed with AOR. There's an underground movement happening with many artists all over the world. Even Daft Punk called Paul Williams to be on their project. So, maybe it’s coming back a little, the idea of technical eloquence in music.”  
Ed Motta is Brazil's foremost AOR musician and collector, and it's hard to imagine we'll hear a smoother mix this year than this one. And many of the tracks are extraordinarily rare.  You can read Ed's track by track commentary on the mix at Wax Poetics.
