A really dreamy little set from this hip Brazilian combo – a set that's got a bossa feel overall, but which also seems to draw a bit from folkloric roots too! The instrumentation is nice and warm – a great 60s blend of light percussion, acoustic guitar, and nice bits of jazzy flute and vibes – all really sparkling nicely with the group's blend of male and female vocals – sometimes singing solo, but often coming together in these harmonies that are mighty nice! There's echoes here of some of the other bossa harmony groups – like Tamba Trio or Os Cariocas – but the approach is pretty fresh, too – given all the nice little touches the group uses to make the music here their own. Titles include "Pouca Duracao", "Amor E Ilusao", "Onibus Colegial", "E Assim Foi O Nosso Amor", and "Mandrake".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

WEA (Brazil), 1980. New Copy
A great live recording done for Brazilian TV – one that features Joao in a very stripped-down setting, like the best of his classic recordings! The material is pure bossa – with lots of lovely guitar work, and Joao's soulful vocals right up front in the mix. Rita Lee joins in on the ... CD
