Dreamy and romantic
echoes of empires | San Francisco, CA USA | 03/16/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Braziliana takes many sonic directions, all seamlessly interwoven by Bonfa's indescribably sweet playing and melodies. There are guitar instrumentals, songs with great twilight rushes strings, though mostly and best of all, the beautifully relaxed singing of Maria Toledo. The music is very dreamy and romantic, making Joao Gilberto sound downright stodgy - the sweetness is what I love about it. Each and every song gives us a beautiful melody - don't forget that Bonfa wrote the theme song for "Black Orpheus," a small masterpiece in its own right. The tunes here won't disappoint. As the vinyl is long out of print and nearly impossible to find, I'd say the expense is well worth it.

How those LPs come back to haunt you!!

"I remember this Record album from back in the 60s,seeing it in Stores and My friends parents had the LP in their Record collection.My general feeling was."Bleeh!This is what Grownups listen to!"..I didn't have to hear it!..Bossa Nova was everywhere!..The Brazilian Invasion was as big as the British Invasion...Now here it is many years later and how happy I am to have this CD and thankful that my tastes were broadened during and beyond my Rock phase(Rock never dies tho :o)..)I'm not sure how serious Bossa experts regard this particular Album..All i know is that its a little slice of heavenly 60's fluff...A most pleasing collaberation between husband and wife music & lyrics team.
Definately music for "Lovers"..and Music Lovers alike!"
