A Great Tribute
to One of the Most Important Brazilian Choro Composers. Carlos Malta is Back
Presenting New Sax and Flute Versions of 10 Great Choro Classics Written by
Pixinguinha. Malta is Accompanied by a String Quartet.
This cd is most definitely one of the my FAVORITE " examples"
of "Musica Brasileira instrumental"-- that covers A LOT of ground! Carlos Malta
is formerly of Hermeto Pascoal's fabled "O GRUPO"(the seminal grupo, as is
said!). He is the reed/woodwind player extaordinaire!!A very unique musician who
absorbed Hermeto's "vision", the cd is a brilliant document of Seu
personal musical heart. It's is magnificent blend of orchestral
arrangements-lush like any of the Ellington or Mingus' finest hours- set to the
ritmos of Brasil's northeast. The cd is recorded, forming a "suite". Ellington's
"Afro-Bossa Suite", or Mingus' "Cumbia & Jazz Fusion" might be close
comparisons. Among the enjoyable moments in this cd is a lush waltz "Luz do Sol"
which features the enchanting Jane DuBoc singing in the wordless Brasilian
style- I hesitate to call it vocalese. The Maracatu "Paradindonde..." leads
into"Luz",and is my particular favorite. THERE IS NOT A BAD TRACK ON THIS CD!
Parabens, Seu Carlos !! --an Amazon reviewer
