This is a remarkably perfect collection with the old classics sung new!! 13 selections! Such songs as "Brazil," "To Hurt My Heart," "Bahia," "Here We Are," "One Note Samba," "The Girl From Ipanema" are in this smooth collection of Brazilian jazz.
I played "To Hurt My Heart" several times, and I was amazed at the beauty of the performance, especially the tender vocal by Paulinho Garcia; this song, and this goes for the entire CD, deserve much play time on the jazz stations. Both of these jazz musicians are professional and share their poetic visions in music with the jazz listener. Give a few listens to the lovely "You and I" also, for it is an outstanding and lively Brazilian song, as is "Here We Are."
Great songs, great Brazilian feel, great Brazilian sound, great in all aspects!! Make this a must have CD if you love the sounds of innovative, excellent Brazilian music, for everything about TWO FOR BRAZIL is perfect! Five stars!
TWO FOR BRAZIL is a classic! Excellent! Great musical adventure, great performances!
