Amazing stuff – the most intriguing album we've heard from Gal Costa in decades – and one of the first in many years to get back to the more experimental side of her music! The set was co-produced by Caetano and Moreno Veloso (who also play on the session as well), and it's really got Gal getting back to the creative styles of the Tropicalia years – yet also filtered through the more contemporary modes that Moreno's been using in his 21st Century projects too! The blend is incredible – a reminder that Costa can still be pretty damn captivating when she wants to be – and that she's still part of one of the most important musical communities on the planet. Kassin also does a lot of work on the record – and in a way, it almost sound most like some of his best creative projects in recent years – but graced with all the indescribable depth that Costa brings to her presentation of the lyrics. Titles include "Segunda", "Recanto Escura", "Cara Do Mundo", "Autotune Autoerotico", "Tudo Doi", and "Neguinho".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

That's Brasil 65, not Brasil 66 – a distinction that marks a key early stage for the great Sergio Mendes – heard here on one of his first albums to mix together bossa jazz and vocals! The approach here is a bit more like vintage bossa dates from Brazil – or a bit like some of the ... CD
