CD Reviews

A love triangle - artist, music and audience!
zopran | 12/27/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I was introduced to Beth Carvalho's haunting, dusky voice on Putumayo's compilation album, "Brasileiro", which made me want to hear more. This album is a dazzling, joyously performed live concert which seems to be a love affair between Carvalho, her music and her ecstatic audience. The musicians create a tight, high-energy background for vocals which are by turns dancy, jazzy, sultry, melancholy and playful. The only drawback for the new devotee of Brazilian music is the extremely sketchy liner notes, which do not provide anything beyond song titles, authors and personnel. You will want to sing along (as does the audience - a high point is their rendition of an entire chorus of a very infectious song) -- but alas, no lyrics, no translations, no biographical information is available on this release. It's still undoubtedly worth having in your collection and enjoying often."
Compilation of some of Beth's best songs from many albums

"Beth Carvalho is one of the top samba performers of Brazil, and particularly a champion of a style called "pagode." She also does wonderful tear-jerking renditions of slow, romantic ballads. The songs on this CD are a good sample of her best stuff."
Great Stuff!

"Beth Carvalho is simply the greatest living singer in Brazil right now. I can say this with great honesty because I listen to a lot of Brazilian music. This is not to detract from other Brazilian singers, but Beth's deep, sultry, and incredibly infectious voice seems to convey the spirit of Brazil better than anyone out there. This live album recorded in 91 shows off all her styles and is one album that is an absolute must have for anyone who appreciates great Brazilian music. This album is a collection of some of her best material recorded live. Some of the songs have been sped up a little, but the song's still maintain that smooth and mood setting sexy samba beat that I love so much. One song that is particulary noteworty is Danca Da Solidao. It's better than the studio recording and it just oozes with coolness and the audience singing the chorus just takes your breath away. All in all, Beth Carvalho creates music that is timeless because she uses instrumentation that is timeless. Just listen to any of her recordings from the 70's and they sound like they were recorded yesterday. She truly is not only the queen of Samba, but one of the greatest singers in the history of Brazilian music. Enjoy this album."
