I was looking for music from Brazil performed by someone from outside of Brazil, but I did not want some of those once in a lifetime Bossa Nova opportunistic performance. I was looking for an album featuring an international artist with tight connections with the music from Brazil, such like Toots Thielemans, Stan Getz and many others. I’m amazed that this CD released in 1998 has gone out of print very soon, in the other hand, I’m really happy to share another record by Lani Hall, she has a solid connection with the music from Brazil and this album is very beautiful, featuring several Brazilian artists. Let’s see.

This is Lani Hall – Brasil Nativo (1998), for BMG. Lani Hall sings in English, Portuguese and on an Amazon language that it is impossible to identify with my knowledge on tracks 01 – Tres Curimins and 05 – Brasil Nativo. Dori Caymmi has a major participation from the start until the end as arranger, vocalist and guitar player. Herb Alpert, which is Lani Hall’s husband, also deliver trumpet playing and arrangements together with Paulinho da Costa, Michael Sapiro, Heitor Pereira, Jimmy Johnson, among many others. Tracks include:

“Special thanks to Sergio Mendes for changing the course of my life, and for introducing me to the beautiful sounds of Brasil. Thank you Aloysio de Oliveira (Luie) for making this album a reality, and to Oscar Castro Neves for his unique talent. The music of Brasil has entered my heart and sings through my soul”.

Lani Hall

Wonderful statement by a singer with several albums at Loronix having her first album as main performer today. I never heard about a solo LP by Lani Hall, actually, my education on Sergio Mendes did not reach his supporting artists and I could only take Leni Hall as an artist with this album, thanks to Caetano for providing to our community.

This is Lani Hall – A Brazileira Lani Hall (1981), for A&M, produced by the mighty Aloysio de Oliveira and arranged by Oscar Castro Neves. Lani Hall does not speak Portuguese and sings Portuguese lyrics as Brazilian, and she sings very well. A Brazileira Leni Hall also features percussion by Laudir de Oliveira and Abraham Laboriel on bass. Tracks include:


Oscar Castro Neves
