Gilberto Gil continues his exploration of Caribbean-styled rhythms here – working in a sunny space that's a bit different from his earlier work, especially some of his more electric or intimate sets of a decade ago. The style here is one that suits Gil's aging vocals well – as his presentation of the lyrics is a nice contrast to some of the brighter sounds from the instrumentation – music that's possibly a bit sweeter and sunnier overall, leaving Gilberto in a position to provide the real depth and soul of the record. Production is by Liminha, and titles include "Os Pais", "Outros Viram", "Cano", "Maquina De Ritmo", "O Oco Do Mundo", "Nao Grude Nao", "Formosa", "Olho Magico", and "Guiexa No Tatame".

Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 1998. Used
A great recent album by Gilberto Gil – and one recorded in Oslo with a huge mixture of styles criss-crossing in a very international venue. The record features performances by Trilok Gurtu, Toninho Ferragutti, and the lovely Marlui Miranda – and many of the tracks have a nice rootsty ... CD

Louvacao
Philips (Brazil), 1967. Used
A brilliant early moment for the young Gilberto Gil – a set recorded right before his jump into the Tropicalia movement, but with a sound that's already pretty darn unique! The style here has Gilberto singing upfront and playing acoustic guitar – in a mode that's certainly rooted in ... CD

Facil (Brazil), 2010. Used
One of the freshest albums we've heard in years from Gilberto Gil – a set that seems to shake off some of the misdirections of recent records, and really get back the sharper style of his roots – while still also heading off into a new mode as well! There's a definite forro ... CD

Verve, 1963. Used
Antonio Carlos Jobim's classic Verve session from 1963 – a tremendous record, done with a wonderful airy sound that became the trademark for bossa production in America – and which also had a great inspiration on the sound of mid 60s bossa in Brazil! Claus Ogerman arranged and conducts ... CD

Personalidade
Polygram (Germany), 1987. Used
Brazilian "greatest hits" comp of Caetano's work, with a majority of material from the late 70's and early 80's, but also with a few cuts from the late 60's Tropicalia years. Every cut's a winner, though – with the high high level of imagination that you'd expect from Caetano! ... CD
