CD Reviews

Lovely, sumptuous Sunday morning music
Tom B | Westport, CT USA | 04/10/2002
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Gal Costa is blessed with a voice that at once soothes, energizes and pleases in a lyrically tuneful way. It's no wonder she is so popular. This recording is a collection of lovely and lush songs, a perfect accompaniment for a sunny Sunday or to brighten up a cloudy morning. Even on the faster, brassier numbers like the first cut, E Luxo So, Costa massages you with her breathy seductiveness. Perhaps not as brilliant as the great samba masters, this is nonetheless a prize of a recording that my wife and I have enjoyed many times, while sipping coffee and reading magazines, etc. It never fails to please, even after repeated listening. An excellent purchase."
Gal Costa sings Ary Barroso in her cool style
Carlos from Rio | Rio de Janeiro, RJ Brazil | 05/18/2003
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Ary Barroso was one the great traditional composers in Brazil. His only international reference is his song "Brazil" as recorded by Frank Sinatra besides Carmen Miranda's renditions of some of his songs.

So this is an Ary Barroso songbook album.

Features Caetano Veloso on "No Tabuleiro da Baiana" in a delicious duet with Ms. Costa.

Overall, you'll hear Gal Costa in her cool performances of Barroso's material. No brilliant arrangements to feature."
