Quarteto Novo
Hermeto Pascoal, Airto Moreira,
Heraldo Do Monte & Theo De Barros

Quarteto Novo [ORIGINAL RECORDING REMASTERED]
Brazilian Odeon Series Supported by Musica Locomundo.
Digitally Remastered. Two Bonus Tracks: 'Ponteio' & 'O Cantador'
(1967)

An impressive late-'60s Brazilian jazz album, featuring early work by percussionist Airto Moreira, multi-instrumental madman, Hermeto Pascoal, and the politically-inclined MPB songwriter Geraldo Vandre, along with guitarists Theo De Barros and Heraldo Do Monte. The album opens with "O Ovo," a brisk update of the turn-of-the-century "choro" style popularized by Pixinguinha and other Brazilian musical pioneers. The album gradually progresses into more modern, straightforward jazz material (which isn't as much fun) and even a Luiz Gonzaga forro tune. The playing throughout is very rich, well recorded, and vastly superior to many of their Braz-jazz contemporaries, even dipping into a mellow Vince Guaraldi-style vibe. This isn't just a cool footnote into the early careers of several of Brazil's most important musicians, it's also a very enjoyable, well-performed album. Recommended! --an Amazon reviewer
