Daniel Salinas, from Sao Paolo, released only two albums. "Paz Amor E Samba," from 1972, was a collection of samba and other Brazilian styles. In 1974, "Atlantis" - a jazz-funk masterpiece in a Blaxploitation soundtrack style - was released. The ambitious album is a mix of electric grooves, Baroque instrumentations, horns, conga, flute, and Fender Rhodes, sometimes dance-funky and other times classical-mellow. The album features a killer funk version of Richard Strauss' "Also Sprach Zarathustra," here named "Straussmania" (a song made popular as the theme to Stanley Kubrick's 1968 movie, "2001: A Space Odyssey," and recorded two years earlier by another Brazilian, keyboard maestro Deodato).
