4-0 out of 5 stars You Take This In the Car, To Remind You Why You Cuddle To Her At Home
Astrud Gilberto may be the most romantic singer Brazil has ever yielded up. She's certainly the most pleasing to hear, whether the setting is a small group or an orchestra, whether it's pure bossa or jazz-inclining pop with the subtle embellishments of her native country. Put her in front of a Stan Getz quartet, a Gil Evans orchestra, a Walter Wanderley organ trio, or even a James Last ensemble, and she evokes a faraway beach that is at once as accessible as the sun and as elusive as the perfect wave. Which is just about what she has been herself in her musical personality---at the moment you think she has reached forth to touch you, she fades back and away at the moment you reach forth to touch her back, as if the yearning she so often exposes requires so much more profound touch to satisfy that you envy without shame the one who wins her love.

This cd is so good I really love it has great tunes, For some how I have never herd of this artist I herd her on the "Some things gotta give" (sound track) I herd "so nice" on that cd I fell in love with it so I went to amazon.com and saw her cd and I love all most every song on the cd!!

5-0 out of 5 stars Bossa Nova rocks
This cd was the first of many brazilian bossa novas I've bought.I heard the Girl from Ipanema on a complilation jazz cd and was hooked then.I don't aggree w/ the above reviewers who don't like the orchestral arrangements?Are you nuts?This album is fantastic!Its actually two albums, and I love every song. I grew up listening to mostly r/b and this style is second only to that for me.
4-0 out of 5 stars A masterpiece PLUS a great album
As many reviewers have said, tracks 9-14 are worth the price of the album.These tracks are simply astonishing.I first heard three or four of them over the internet and on various mix CDs that my friends had.I was drawn to "Aquarela do Brasil" and "Disse Alguem" especially, and you could tell that it was the same session.I told myself I had to find such an album.(You see Mr. Record Company, many file sharers do go out and buy CDs!)5-0 out of 5 stars Yes, Joao Gilberto Singing
I've heard that Mr. Gilberto, being very shy and a little strange, would not go into the studio for Amoroso, so they went to his house to record and he sang and played in his pajamas.Then Claus came along and added the quite wonderful arrangements afterwards.Perhaps that explains the slight out of synch feel.Read more

Editorial Review

Venezuela's resident musical maniacs and former Latin Grammy nominees are back with covers of seventeen tunes they knew and loved during their teen years, a few of which, such as "Miss Venezuela," complete with samples of a simpering beauty queen, actually sound strangely familiar. Their rampant satirical stance and penchant for studio wizardry still firmly in place, they wallow in neo-nostalgia, running amok in Caracas Oldieville, abetted by producer DJ Dimitri of Paris and their own polymorphous tendencies. Nods to Isaac Hayes, Nigerian superstar Fela Kuti, sixties bossa nova as sanitized via the American west coast, P-Funk, Santana, and even The Fifth Dimension do a crazed buck-and-wing around hip-hop, lounge and latter-day dance club machinations. The contexts shift so rapidly that if the listener weren't so busy boogying, vertigo might well set in. By the third track, the flagrantly over-ripe, increasingly bizarre sets of cross-pollinations begin to seem almost normal, as a kind of sonic Stockholm Syndrome sets in. Going with the flow becomes not only a matter of self-preservation, but a hilarious, booty-shaking journey into the group's seductive, endlessly inventive brand of lunatic genius. --Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars pales compared to the last 3 albums
Let's be candid, this album is not as well-produced or infectious as the prior 3 Los Amigos Invisibles albums.I love these guys to death, I'm not trying to be negative.But I find myself having no urge to re-listen to "Superpop Venezuela", whereas I always loved to revisit the Luaka Bop releases.Los Amigos Invisibles are an incredible live act, so perhaps this new material is better in concert.
5-0 out of 5 stars De lo mejor del 2006: Trae grandes recuerdos!
Los Amigos Invisibles se embarcaron en un proyecto interesante con "Superpop Venezuela". Manteniendo la linea tipicamente divertida de su musica, se enfocaron en estos 18 temas en rendir tributo a algunas de las canciones que fueron legendarias en los años ochenta en Venezuela. Desde el tema del concurso Miss Venezuela hasta clasicos como "No Es Facil Amar" (de Adrenalina Caribe), "San Agustin" (de Vytas Brenner), "Si Tu Te Vas" (de Colina) y "Media Luna" (de Yordano), el album entero reverbera con musica que trae grandes recuerdos para cualquiera que crecio en Venezuela en los ochenta.
5-0 out of 5 stars Directly from Venezuela this time!
I have to admit that this is an ambitious project from LAI and a very creative one as well. They're taking their favorites from Venezuelan artists and just making it their own basically.

5-0 out of 5 stars Famous First Daughter Sings Again
"Bebel Gilberto" is a worthy follow-up to "Tanto Tempo." "Tanto Tempo" had a more electric feel because of the production by the late genius Suba.
5-0 out of 5 stars Incredibly smooth, melodic, and soothing!
I was walking through Best Buy when I heard one of the songs from this CD playing on the store stereo system. I liked the sound so much that I stopped shopping just to listen, and then I made someone in the store track down the title of that artist and the album that the song was on! Because the song was not in English, it took a while, but it was worth it. I bought the CD immediately. I love her sound so much! If only I enjoyed all the CDs in my collection this much. I would recommend this CD to those who like the sounds of Norah Jones, Joss Stone, maybe even Buena Vista Social Club or other latin jazz artists. It's rhythmic, peaceful, and soulful all at once. Just beautiful. ... Read more

Editorial Review

This dynamic duo of Dominican pianist-composer Michel Camilo and Spanish flamenco guitarist Tomatito is an intricate improvisational exchange that traverses the Afro-Iberian world, from the Moorish castles of Alhambra to the azure-tinged Caribbean coasts of Havana and Santo Domingo. Camilo and Tomatito met in Spain in the early 1990s, performed together in 1997, and toured in the summer of 1999. Camilo's florid and fleet-fingered, classically trained pianism is a beautiful counterpoint to Tomatito's passionate, plectral poetry, which combines the precision of the great classical guitaristAndrés Segovia and the flair of Paco De Lucia. Together, they reinterpret the works of several Latin composers with vigor and vitality, including Consuelo Velazquez's immortal bolero/cancion, "Besame Mucho," and Luis Salinas's elegant "Aire de Tango." Camilo's "Two Much/Love Theme" and Tomatito's "La Vacilona" highlight the depth and breadth of their interplay. They reach their zenith on "Spain Intro," their incredible adapted Joaquin Rodrigo's Read more

Michel camilo and tomatito made a one of best music style.The pianno from mitchel camilo and the flamenco style guitar's tomatito make one couple unforgettable.
4-0 out of 5 stars A glimpse into their awesome chemistry!
I regularly go the Blue Note here in NYC and got the chance to see Michel Camilo live on this one night.I didn't expect to see what I saw! I've always known how awesome a pianist Michel Camilo is but when I saw Tomatito, I was in awe of Tomatito's technique. I was about 10 feet away from him and I couldn't figure out how he was getting all those beautiful sounds. I was so anxious to get the CD but everywhere I turned to didn't have it.When I got it, I was a little disappointed.Just a little...When I saw them live, THEY WERE 10 TIMES BETTER THAN ON THE CD, if you can imagine that!The CD doesn't do them justice but it comes pretty close.

5-0 out of 5 stars Vergatario!!
The recording quality is superb, and the artistic balance just perfect. Nobody on top of anybody.Camilo's versatility is outstanding: from tango-to rumba-to bulerias with an amazing fluidity. I wish the pair had recorded a few more tunes for this CD.But I am being selfish here.Recommended without reservations and indispensable for those who love "latin jazz". ... Read more

Editorial Review

This enchanting, flavorful CD finds the ever curious Yo-Yo Ma traveling to South America, and Brazil in particular. The music varies from classical to samba to bossa nova; the combinations range from guitar, flute, and cello to female voice (the remarkable Rosa Passos), cello, guitar, percussion, piano, and bass; to simple cello and piano; to cello and two guitars. The overriding element is rhythm; each selection has a beat which is both infectious and sensual, but the contexts are splendidly varied. "Dansa brasileira" has a Debussy-like, impressionistic flavor, "Dansa negra" is sultry with an easy melody, "1 x 0" is a dance scored for guitar, percussion, and cello with a solo clarinet riff. It's impossible to get bored or tired listening to this creative CD; it's unique--just like Yo-Yo Ma himself--and endlessly surprising. It may not be quite what we'd call "classical" music, but it is many kinds of music, and they all will delight. The other musicians are as impressive on their instruments as Ma is with his cello, and that's saying a great deal. Read more

The tempos and sensuality of Brazilian music meshed with the artistry and joyous soul of Yo Yo Ma: a recipe for pleasure.I first listened to this on my car CD player and found myself wanting to pull over and get out and dance.The depth of Ma's cello adds just the right counterpoint to the rhythms and buoyancy of the samba and bossa nova. Enjoy!

5-0 out of 5 stars Takes My Breath Away
This Disc is merely further proof of what the world already knows. Yo Yo Ma was in fact born to play the Cello, it is simply fantastic. It is a must own for me, It feels the air around you with such wonderful tones. Although some classical snobs might complain that this is nothing more than a pseudo Classical album, who cares. They should find the nearest emergency room and have someone remove the poles from thier *sses. No apologizes are needed hear, this disc is all that it needs to be, which is absolutely magnificient.......

Juana Molina set aside the budding musical career she'd pursued since childhood to become one of TV's most acclaimed comedians in her native Argentina. Her original muse may have been denied for seven years, but never forgotten; indeed, Molina has managed something of an unexpected musical delight here. Her breathy, gentle vocals haunt unusual song structures and the album's quiet, playful production sense like some restless ghost, wandering a sonic landscape that's as electro as it is Latin. That pan-cultural, less-is-more sense is rare on any collection, let alone on a sophomore album (Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Female wisdom strikes again
This girl just makes mad every time i listen to her. Mad in a good sense, in a sense of dancing in the double moonlight barefoot, praying outloud to the gods of potions not to be drunk. To describe this music? It reminds me the little electronic whisper of Stereolab (especially Dots and Loops or Cache Coeur Naif with Mouse on Mars) or even Coco Rosie (or early Antenna) and then all the acoustic emotions of Vashti Bunyan as if she had holidays in Argentina, somewhere in Pampas, maybe with Sandy Denny by her side, making out for the pure joy of a psychadelic prevert man. A masterpiece of melody and enlightment, and in spanish (for those who not understand her, she sings pure, natural things and emotions, there it is, Vashti Bunyan again). Have fun, i'm having!

4-0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly addictive
If you only listen for 10 seconds or so, Juana's Segundo would seem to be songs from yet another whispery waif, this time in Spanish.
5-0 out of 5 stars A sleepy voice with an awakening effect
This is an album that I can't stoplistening. It brought back to my memory my childhood playgruond with the song "Que lluvia" which makes reference to a popular song in Latin America. I think Juana Molina mixed the sounds and subjects of the songs in a way so strange but effective that the whole album is like a single song with multiple faces. The lyrics remembered me those short japanese poems that reveal to you a big reflection with just a few words. ... Read more

This eclectic compilation shows the syncopated and seductive evolutionof the African-derived Brazilian samba and its offspring, the bossa nova. The CDfeatures a new-wave series of moods and grooves tailor-made for the 21stcentury. There's angel-voicedRosa Passos and her silkyversion of the Ary Barroso/Luiz Peixoto song "E Luxo So." Guitarist-vocalistMárcio Faraco's remake of Noel Rosa's samba-canção"Feitiço da Vila" is just as tasteful.

I love this album - a great mix of artists.The only track I don't much care for is #3.When I play this CD, I feel an instant sense of warmth and summertime - I don't have a lot of music from this genre, but this is a great CD to start with or expand your collection.The artists included are fantastic.

5-0 out of 5 stars Finally
Finally a Samba/Bossa Nova CD that holds true to the classic roots of Bossa Nova and Samba. From the opening song to the end the sweet scents of Brazil come through with a familiar warmth. I LOVE classic Samba and the Bossa Nova and have bought a lot of compilations with hopes of broadening my collection. The past ones start with the old and end with the new but after about 4 or 5 songs (or when they start going into the more contemporary styles) I lose interest. But this CD is gorgeous and is what you want to hear: the warm silky vocals, the summer rain of syncopations, the guitars and all the sounds that poke in and out of the rhythms.
5-0 out of 5 stars A real gem
This extraordinary music is not easy to categorize. On the one hand this music is for lying in a hammock for two on a warm summer evening in Rio sipping a couple caipirinhas and watching the sunset.But on the other hand this is definitely not fluffy background music.This is music with deep roots. The music is soft and relaxing in the palm tree and summer breezes modality, yet at the same time it is also mature, detailed and thought-provoking. And even though the songs on this album are thoroughly unified by a distinct style, so they are also completely individual and distinct. There is no filler here. This is the good stuff.If you are thinking of buying an album from the world of Samba and Bossa Nova, this one will not disappoint. ... Read more

While Antonio Carlos Jobim is an essential figure in the music of Brazil, he also created a significant place for himself in American music as a great songwriter and a key figure in the tremendous popularity of bossa nova. Apart from his unique melodic gift, what makes Jobim's work memorable is the complexity of mood he could evoke--the touch of sadness that colors the brightest bossa nova, the irony in the midst of joy, and the mixture of delicacy and resilience in his voice and piano. He was an artist who worked primarily in pastels, but it was his sense of shadows that gave his work its most enduring qualities. Including his most famous tunes and collaborators--like "The Girl from Ipanema" with Stan Getz and Astrud Gilberto--Jobim's Read more

I first heard this CD at a friend's house about eight years ago, then heard it again about a year or two after that and absolutely fell in love.Since then, I've moved and re-moved, lost/broke this CD few times, bought new ones, and now it's in my ipod as a favorite!The music is relaxing, uplifting, and Jobim's voice is truly soothing: a true soundtrack for a warm and misty evening stroll through the streets of downtown NYC.

The music on this album is simple bueaty.The sound of the guitar and his voice give a layed back feel.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best of 2005: Magical
Like many people, I learned about Seu Jorge through his participation in the music for "The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou". I found his work interesting, but not particularly engaging. But "Cru" totally got me into his work, head in first. He reminds me of the legendary Brazillians that brought Brazil's contagious music to the forefront of the collective conscience, the likes of Caetano Veloso, Gilberto Gil and Chico Buarque. Jumping from laid back to upbeat, from an urban beat to more of a serenade mellow sound, Seu Jorge will capture you with his magical music from the first track of this, one of 2005's best albums.

For Marisa fans, this is an absolutely beautiful album.I've listened to it many times weekly since I purchased it.I highly recommend it, WITH reservations.I went through serious torture just getting it into mp3 format to play on my iPod.If anyone would like instructions on how to circumvent this lame copy protection scheme in order to play this music on a different medium-within the scope of the license you purchase with the music-please email me and I'll be glad to share how to do it.This is a classic example of publishing companies gone too far.If Marisa's next album comes out with EMI copy protection, I will be forced to stop recommending her music.

3-0 out of 5 stars Pleasant enough, but not memorable
I have to agree with the other reviewers. I'm a huge Marisa Monte fan, but these songs just sail by. They're pleasant, but unlike every other album by MM, I never returned to a track thinking "I have GOT to hear that again (and again and again)." For those of you new to Marisa, may I recommend "A Great Noise" or "Tribalistas"? ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars What happened????
First album very very good both voice and instrumentals. However this time round the voice was good but the instrumentals were dry and very dry and didn't do her voice justice at all making the songs...........just different. Nothing close to her first album. Hopefully she'll go back to her original style that we all came to know and love.

5-0 out of 5 stars Beautiful Voice! Bought it Immediately-Best Album of 2006!
I went to Tower Records, NYC about 2 hours ago to pick up another CD on sale and I happened to noticed that the World Music Section had a new Brazil stand that looked very eye catching. I went over and browsed the Listening Station and was listening to newer CDs from artists I knew when I noticed two people came by me or seperate occasions and picked up Cibelle's CD and went right to the register with it. There was literally 2 of these left on the shelf and I thought what the heck could this be, since I never heard of Cibelle and I'm very savvy to most world music.
4-0 out of 5 stars Cibelle Shines
Brazilian Cibelle shows a penchant for crafting dramatic and darkly sensual numbers that both let the breeze in and pull on heartstrings with her latest album "The Shine of Dried Electric Leaves". The shifting dynamics and the flair with they are presented is impressive. The way the album gently shifts back and forth between Spanish and English presents it as something of a Pan-American beauty and distinguishes her as one of the few artists that can have command performances in both hemispheres the continents of North and South America span. Equally impressive is the songwriting, which can be described as intimate with a sinister passion that elevates her songs up from something of quiet reflection to the souls of the listeners. This is something that makes her songs very endearing and gives them an accessibility that a lot of artists outside of the mainstream lack. This album's powerful moments ("Phoenix", "Flying High) and wonderfully still ("Green Grass", "Limbra") are something more than satisfying and they easily showcase Cibelle as one of the most promising talents of this era.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great for Rodriguez Fans
This is a good compilation. If you're looking for the song that Antonio Banderas plays to the kid in Desperado, this has the full version. Mostly good songs, but a few that aren't amazing.There's a few songs that supposedly inspired the story, but really aren't near as good as the rest. If you like the "epic mexican spaghetti western" sound of Rodriguez's stuff then this is good to have. And I think some of it is previously unreleased, so if you've got all the other soundtracks, this should be next on the list. Good stuff for a Rodriguez fan, or even just someone that's into the unique style.

5-0 out of 5 stars captivating
I came across this album after watching Kill Bill V2.The song that starts just prior to the closing credits (and continues through the credits) is Malague�a Salerosa and I just had to know more about this song.As a result, I discovered this CD.As it turns out, Robert Rodriguez did the score for Kill Bill V2 and I subsequently have come to discover what a creative talent this man is.I heartily recommend the book "Rebel without a Crew," which I recently read.It is Robert's story behind making El Mariachi (I have also posted a review of that book).
5-0 out of 5 stars Not Much "Mariachi", But....
I bought this CD on the strength of my knowledge of some of the musicians hoping to find a sleeper. And I did! The problem for the record company is how to get music stores to put it where it will be found by the "right" people, that is those with an adventurous taste in music who are not afraid to cross over into music sung in a language other than English. Waterloo Records in Austin long ago figured out how to reach that type of listener and so this is a hot seller in Austin. But what about the rest of the US?

5-0 out of 5 stars Just One Word: WOW!!!!!
I've always adored Shakira for the boisterousness and vociferousness that she imports into her music. Be it "Whenever Wherever" or "La Tortura",her music combined with appealing lyrics have always sent a thrill of pleasure and liveliness down my feet and her latest sensational single,"Hips Don't Lie",released from the new album "Oral Fixation Vol.2" and featuring Wyclef Jean is no exception. Shakira lets loose her vibrant music and is so charming in her tone and rhythm. Shakira has really come a long way in becoming a real Latin pop diva and the Colombian singer is surely a big thing in the pop music industry. She looks so killing and sensuous in the video of the song too. "Hips Don't Lie" is another jewel for any pop music lover's treasure closet.

3-0 out of 5 stars Fantastic song; just learned it was remake though
I do not like pop music for the most part (rock and metal are my forte).Yet I find this song to be one of the catchiest (in a good way) I've heard since the stuff on "Thriller".
1-0 out of 5 stars What you say?
I have subtitles when Shakira sings and it still doesnt make sense. She has a nice voice but the rest of her fall flat. Her dancing doesnt impress me, hell every female out there today can dance. She really doesnt make me want to speak spanish either. ... Read more

Editorial Review

John Lee Hooker used to say "the blues is a feeling," but this collection is proof that it's also a universal language. These 11 songs by musicians from South and North America, Europe, Asia, and Africa are a thoroughly enjoyable summation of the genre's ability to cut through cultural barriers to touch the heart. "Slide Blues" by Argentina's Botafogo could be a Delta relic if not for its Spanish lyrics. And singer Big Mama with harp man Victor Uris beautifully blur the lines between Catalonia and Chicago. The great pianist Otis Spann and the trio of Eric Bibb, Rory Block, and Maria Muldaur provide two straight-up shots of the style. The best tunes are outright cross-cultural collaborations.Read more

Tango music seems hard to find, expeccially of such ggod quality. Happy to have found "The Best Tango Album in the World, Ever!", now to the dance floor!!
4-0 out of 5 stars Leonard in Hemet, CA
I gave it four stars to encourage those who like to sit and listen to fine orchestras. This CD may be great for dancing if you are in the clsss with those who danced with the stars. My partner and I are early 80s and dance almost everything else. Then we decided to learn Tango. This album doesn't work for us.

1-0 out of 5 stars withDEFECT
I RECEIVED A CD, THE TANGO CD( THE BEST TANGO ALBUM IN THE WORLD EVER) WAS DEFECTUOUS, SINCE IT PLAYS ALRIGHTUNTIL THE 12TH SONG, BUT THEN THE SONGS STARTS GIVING WEIRD TONES. AND THE 2ND CD ACTS THE SAME WAY, SINCE MY TANGO ALBUM IS A DOUBLE CD.THE PROBLEM IS NOT FROM THE RADIO, SINCE MY OTHER PURCHASE FROM AMAZON IS IN GOOD SHAPE, AS AL MY OTHER CDS.

Editorial Review

With this dreamy collection of soothing lullabies and playful ballads, the supergroup formed by singer/producer Marisa Monte, percussionist Carlinhos Brown, and former Titas member Arnaldo Antunes has proved once and for all that Brazilian music has moved forward beyond the shadows of the seminal tropicalia movement.Favoring a subtle, understated compositional environment, the members of the trio clearly relish each other's company.Their voices come together harmoniously, with a handful of guest musicians adding minimal touches of piano and guitar.From the anthemic declaration of purpose "Carnavalia" to the uplifting charm of the bouncy "Passe Em Casa" and the peaceful aura that permeate the Christmas song "Mary Cristo," the moods here offer an antidote to the unapologetic aggressiveness of most contemporary music."Tribalistas" is more than just the best Brazilian album of the year.It is also an instant classic, a musical message of hope and a joy to listen to from beginning to end.Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars amor e feio
I loved this CD so much when i was in Europe, and i still do now, being here in the States. i am so glad they have portugese AND english translations inside of the CD--the lyrics to Ja sei namorar are so powerful, so deep--knowing their meaning is essential to appreciating this powerful Brazilian pop.

5-0 out of 5 stars Wow!
What a great CD, each track lets allows you to explore new feelings, and it is a project that is not to be overlooked. The CD comes with lyrics in Portuguese and English, so you are really able to appreciate the music. Each of the voices compliment each other well in every track. Definitely in my collection of favorites.

5-0 out of 5 stars Brazilian must have
I just happened to be in Brazil, for carnaval 2003, in Bahia, when this album was released. Anyone who's been to Salvador during Carnaval knows Axe is king. This album just captived the whole Carnaval, outshining Chiclete com Banana and Ivete Sangalo that year. It is an interesting album beacause of the collection of talent, Marisa Monte, a mainstream pop music superstar, Carlinhos Brown, Timbalda (a Bahian Carnaval supergroup), Arnaldo Antunes of Titas, an avant-guard Paulistan group.
