O Melhor Dos Encontros
A rare jewel from one of the the most talented
and loved composers of the Brazilian northeast. Definitely
his most beautiful recording. His guitar touches our spirit in a way hard to put
into words. The whole album is incredible. Inclinacoes
Musicais, Coqueiros,and Dia Branco are among the most beautiful songs and very
popular among Geraldinho's fans. It is all about love, loss, and saudades. I
would recommend this cd to anyone who happens to love Brazilian music, and who
wants to listen to something beyond bossa nova, samba, or axe music. This is a
cd for those who carry Brazil in their hearts. They could not find a better
deliverer than Geraldo Azevedo. He suggests in the
title that whoever "invented" love had musical inclinations! Geraldo Azevedo
was/is one of these inventors. --an Amazon reviewer
Geraldo Azevedo's music owes a great debt to the intricate yet
smooth harmonies of bossa nova, yet its primary source of inspiration is the
music from the north-eastern states of Brazil. With some possible exceptions -
the "samba cancao" Casa Brasileira is one of them - his music is not based on
samba rythms, but on the "toadas", "frevos", "xotes" and the like. On this CD,
recorded live, his voice is accompanied only by his own nylon-string guitar, and
his amazing musicianship also comes through. Simply amazing!
