Jeitinho Brasiliero

Jeitinho Brasileiro

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 Carlos' 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
