A trio of wonderful records from Emilio Santiago – all of which capture him at a key point in his career! Comigo E Assim is a classic batch of jazzy soul from Santiago – one of his best – with sweet 70s arrangements by the likes of Joao Donato, Sivuca, Roberto Menescal, and Antonio Adolfo, all of whom craft a slightly funky style that works wonders with Santiago's vocals. If you've ever bought one of his later, sleepier albums, this is the one to start with – as the record's a great batch of tracks that lives up to the notoriety he's had over the past few years with the international groove scene. Titles include "Nega", "Comigo E Assim", "E Hora", "Danca Mineira", "Preconceito", "Te Cuida, Rapaz", "No Balanco Do Trem", and "Quando Chegares". O Canto Crescente is a wonderful gem from Emilio Santiago – soaring and hip all the way through! After some of his earlier funkier work, this may well be the best full album ever cut by Santiago – thanks to some warm jazzy arrangements from the likes of Antonio Adolfo and Meirelles, both of whom really make the set sparkle with a warm electric piano groove! Emilio's vocals are great – soulful and sophisticated at once, perfectly fitting with the light jazzy changes of the tracks, giving them the right dose of honest emotion. Titles include "Rola Bola
", "Recado", "Logo Agora", "Caridade", "Bufete E Cascudo", "Trocando Em Muidos", and "Quase Sempre". Guerreiro Coracao captures Emilio Santiago in a sweet live setting – one that really brings out the sharpest crackle in his music! Titles include "Diariamente", "Perdao", "Pela Metade", "Guerreiro Coracao", "De Repente", "Mistura", "Dama Da Noite", "Minhas Madrugadas", and "Anuncio Classificado".
