We couldn't think up a nicer title for this one than "Velvet Bossa Nova" – as the album's a smooth little set, with some really sweet instrumentation! The music on the set is played by a small group led by guitarist Neco – and featuring drums by Wilson Das Neves, bass by Tiao Marinho, percussion by Rubens Bassini, and some extra light touches on strings from arranger Astor! Neco's guitar really dominates the set – played with a spare, acoustic flourish that reminds us a lot of Luiz Bonfa at his mellow best, with but a bit of a groovier touch too. Titles include "Saudade De Bahia", "Chuva", "Manha De Carnaval", "Reza", "Maria Ninguem", and "Chove La Fora".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
