In some ways, this is a strategic retreat for Antonio Carlos Jobim after the classical departures of the '70s – a retrospective of past triumphs, including some of the most trod-upon standards ("Ipanema," "Desafinado," "One-Note Samba," etc.), with Claus Ogerman again at hand. But these are thoughtful retoolings, some subtle, some radical, ranging in backing from a lonely piano to elaborate yet sensitive Ogerman orchestral flights that cram more complexity than ever into the spaces (listen to his beguilingly involved take on "Double Rainbow") with only a few overbearing faux pas. Jobim's own vocals sound increasingly casual in temperament as he serves them up in an unpredictable mixture of Portuguese, English and scat. And there is much unfamiliar material here, often dressed up in a brooding classical manner.

Gifted with an expressive and powerful soprano, charting and platinum-selling fado singer Mariza is a superstar of the fado movement with a global following. Though she always works within fado's traditional boundaries, she takes chances by engaging elements of folk traditions from her native Mozambique, the southern reaches of her home in Portugal, Brazil, and even further afield: Her repertoire, while firmly rooted in classical and contemporary fado, has grown to include occasional Cape Verdean mornas, R&B and Motown classics, and any other music she holds dear at any given time. With the release of her debut album Fado Em Mim in 2001, her reputation in Portugal was equaled internationally.

Gabriela Anders got her big break singing a duet with soft jazz giant Michael Franks, and like that new age patriarch, Anders wraps laid-back vocals around even more tranquil rhythms. It's all very calming and proficient and breezy. Wanting, her debut album, mixes bits of her Argentine heritage with late-'70s California jazz, so Brazilian music coasts along with soft and hazy saxophone fills and tapping percussion leads. It all can be very pretty, as the opening "Fire of Love" represents Anders at her most relaxed and relaxing.

Symphonic Prog | Country: Brazil | Label: Caravela Escarlate

Caravela Escarlate is a Brazilian symphonic prog band, founded in Rio de Janeiro in 2011. “Caravela Escarlate” is their second album, originally self-released in Brazil in 2017, and is a big step forward from their debut “Raschuno”. Where the debut was more acoustic, “Caravela Escarlate” is way more keyboard-driven, classic prog rock. The album is heavily inspired by both English and Italian 70’s prog, but also by traditional and popular Brazilian music, which makes their music quite special. Fans of keyboard trios like ELP, Trace or Triumvirat will love tracks like “Planeta-Estrela” and “Atmosfera”, and fans of symphonic prog (especially the 70s retro style) should definitely check this out.

Featuring on the current Brazilian scene, POÇOS & NUVENS is a band that is conquering more and more popularity among the prog scene world-wide. With great musicianship, the band uses a wide range of instruments, where violins and flutes compete for attention with great keyboards textures and extraordinary guitar arrangements. Many influences are present on their music, but it's obvious that JETHRO TULL and YES stand out here, as well as some Italian classics. The band showed great musicianship already at their debut album "Ano Veloz Outono Dentro" but the second release "Provincia Universo" features among the 10 top albums of 2001.

It is a bit ironic that guitarist Laurindo Almeida found himself in the 1960's jumping on the bossa-nova bandwagon a bit late for he had actually pioneered the movement a decade earlier. The Brazilian guitarist plays well enough on the 11 bossa tunes included on this LP (mostly originals plus covers of "The Girl From Ipanema," "Manha De Carnaval" and "Quiet Nights Of Quiet Stars") but the arrangements (which sometimes utilize the whistling of Jack Marshall, George Field's harmonica and flutist Harry Klee among others) are commercial and overly concise; all but two of the songs are under three minutes. Irene Kral's two vocals (quite early in her career) are a plus and the music is quite pleasing but there are no surprises.

Genre: Fado, Folk, World Music | Label: Detour | # 3984-28184-9 | Time: 00:46:12

Portuguese singer Misia's fifth album (though only her second American release) moves away from the traditional fado of her earlier albums into a more electric and varied sound. Usually this is a really bad sign that means the artist is trying to break the U.S. pop market through a watered-down, Americanized version of what had made them interesting in the first place. Happily, this is not the case with Paixoes Diagonais, which isn't fado lite, but simply fado with a few twists. Starting with the strictly traditional title track, the album slowly adds non-traditional elements like subtle string sections, unobtrusive keyboards and electric bass. Thankfully, they avoid the chattering sequencers and electronic beats that have ruined so many so-called world albums since the '80s. Even the least traditional track here, the almost Kate Bush-like "Nascimento de Venus" is rooted in traditional Portuguese fado, and Misia's spellbinding voice remains front and center throughout the album. While perhaps not for hard-line purists, this album is a terrific introduction to both Misia and fado in general.

His song, "No Baixa De Sapateiro," based on a Brazilian pop tune, was included in the Disney film The Three Caballeros and popularized as "Baia."

Poços & Nuvens (wells & clouds in portuguese) is a prog band form Santa Maria, state of Rio Grande Do Sul, at the extreme south of Brazil. The people in there have their very own culture and history, with much influence of their spanish speaking neighbors of argentina, uruguay and paraguay. This group in particular does a great job unifying symphonic prog rock with popular music from their region…
