Milton Nascimento - Journey to Dawn

Hello, good evening! I had the feeling that something should be different while preparing this post. But I only understood what was causing this worry a few minutes ago. It was very easy to realize, just look at the last 7 albums and you will see they were released in the 1970’s, a big coincidence. I’m now missing the music from previous decades, which are the contributions I like most, for several reasons.

I swear that tomorrow this sequence is interrupted, if possible with something quite old, from the 1950s. Anyway, these are details when we have a record by Milton Nascimento, a good choice to start the last week of 2008. Let’s see.

This is Milton Nascimento – Journey to Dawn (1979), for A&M, recorded in the US, featuring Milton Nascimento backed by renowned Brazilian and American musicians. I had a great time with this album today, when I had the chance to hear for the first time. There are some well-known Milton Nascimento tunes here, such like Paula e Bebeto, Unencounter (mostly known as Cancao da America), Maria Maria, O Cio da Terra and my favorite, Credo, also available at Loronix Preview Center. Tracks include:


Milton Nascimento

Nelson Angelo

Hi Zeca,

Thanks for the wonderful music you share with us here, it would be impossible for me to listen to all these fantastic and rare music without your contribution.

I also would highly appreciate if you can give me some info about Barney Kessel’s “Kessel’s kit (aka Guitarra)” album and the chance of sharing it with us if possible.

With my warmest New Year wishes for you and everybody from Iran.

Thanks for this and everything you put up. Wish I could find time to hear it all!

Maybe you will be interested to hear this:

I remember you writing about the possibility of doing a project of all the releases in this series. Would love to see that!

Wishing a very happy new year.
