I’m feeling like a writer with a creative crisis to describe this beauty of an album. Perhaps my problem is to understand why this unusual and late Bossa Nova session featuring international musicians could result in such a solid album. Joao Gilberto has the control, playing the role of arranger and producer to work together with Tropicalia icons Caetano Veloso and Gilberto Gil to make this sublime record. This is an essential album that everybody should take for a listening and file as special on your Brazilian music affair.
This is Joao Gilberto, Caetano Veloso e Gilberto Gil – Brasil (1981), for WEA, a short session with six songs featuring Joao Gilberto guitar, the voices of Caetano Veloso, Gilberto Gil and a special participation of Maria Bethania on track 04 – No Tabuleiro da Baiana. Personnel listing brings the acclaimed pianist and arranger Clare Fischer and Paulinho da Costa, the only Brazilian musician besides Joao Gilberto. Tracks include:
