After listening to this remarkable compilation of Brazilian music and Brazilian jazz, I was ready to take a vacation down to Brazil, for it is a compilation of 19 songs that will excite you from beginning to end. Biscoito Fino put the collection together, and it is a truly fine cookie. Biscoito Fino translated into English means, "fine cookie."
For the jazz listener, or for any listener who enjoys the music of Brazil, this is an ideal collection, and also would serve as an excellent introduction for a friend wanting to hear contemporary music of Brazil. Some of Brazil's most important artists are recorded on this CD collection, including Grupo Garganta Profunda, Quarteto Maogani, Leila Pinheiro, Sergio Santos, Francis Hime, Sona Maria Vieira, Linda Bustani, Olivia Hime, Miucha, among many others.
Some outstanding hightlights on this memorable listening adventure include Linda Bustani on "Minha," Olivia Hime on "Agua de vintem," Sonia Maria Vieira on "Pivete," Miucha on "Todo sentimento," Leila Pinheiro on "Choro da Sinfonia do Rio de Janeiro de Sao Sebastiano," Marcelo Vianna on "Carinhoso," among others. Each song and each performance is well-crafted and a gem of Brazilian music. A fine compilation and enjoyable listening. This is an excellent introduction to contemporary Brazilian musical expression, and one all audiences will find memorable.
