CD Reviews

Amazingly good
Jeffrey D. Kenyon | USA | 12/17/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I've been a longtime fan of the Assads, but was surprised by my own reaction to this CD. It's really, amazingly good. Track two (Baião de Gude, by Bellanati) is a guitar trio of Sergio, Odair, and Badi, and it is performed with such artistry and enthusiasm that, in my opinion, it's worth the price of the CD all by itself (really, no kidding: I would have gladly paid $20 for a CD single of that one track and felt as if I was being undercharged). Every track is a different line-up of performers and as I listened, I was just marvelling at the talent and energy of this family. Clarice Assad (vocals, vocal arrangements, piano, bass), in particular, was a revelation.

If you love Brazilian music, buy this. If you're looking for a straightahead classical recording by the Sergio and Odair Assad, you might be disappointed by this outing (they're alone on only one tune, Gismonti's Baião Malandro), but this album is anything but disappointing."
