Elizeth Cardoso

Faxineira das Canções

Faxineira das Canções [BOX SET]
five-CD retrospective boxed set

Includes CDs of wonderful cuts across Cardoso's career and, finally, the whole 1968 concert with the Zimbo Trio, Jacob do Bandolim, and Epoca de Ouro that has been circulating on tired old LPs, including the immortal, endless jam on Barracão (samba parallel to the long "Light my Fire" from the Doors and Paul Gonçalves' two-dozen-odd solos at Newport with Duke Ellington). Everyone is here: a whole CD with Rafael Rabello, even a cameo by Paulinho da Viola. Lyrics (not translated) and lots of interesting notes (in Portuguese). Chico Buarque says "Elizeth is our most beloved singer. It's the mother's voice, mother of all the singers of Brazil." Chico Buarque has forgotten more than you or I know about Brazilian music and has impeccable taste. Buy this set. -- an Amazon reviewer
