Bravo,"O Bruxo" !

"IT IS VERY FORTUNATE THAT ,with most of HERMETO'S work sadly out of print, this SPARKLING diamond is still avaliable! for me, this is Hermeto's most fully realized recording.The full compliment of his GENIUS is availed to the listener in this recording, from his wonderful "novo" chorinho, "Intocavel" to the beautifully arranged "Cancao da Tarde" ,Hermeto's cd overflows w/ all of the musical watercolors he controls on his "pallette"--- Baiao, Frevo, Maracatu, Jazz ,Avante-guard,.....all filtered thru Hermeto's joyfully MAD musical genius concept QUE MARAVILHA---- "In Portuguese, his nicknames translate as either "the Champion" or "the Sorcerer", one listen & you of course will understand! The world's "greatest living composer" seems destined for glory only after he passes on, let's give some to Seu Hermeto NOW! Music for the head, but "Candango" will make you DANCE too! BUY, and TELL YOUR FRIENDS! haha! Not enough "stars" avaliable to rate this ! (e nao gosto disso! ) Peppino"

""So nao toca quem nao quer" is only the tip of the Iceberg from one of the trully greatest Genius of 20th Century, Hermeto Pascoal, a very sensitive person, a man which was born on a remote location of Brazil, in the 30s, where he hadn't even a radio, nor electricity nearby. The most part of his work were not recorded yet. He learnt the transversal flute secrets in less than a month, and learned electric bass reasonably on a few hours (He needed to play that night). He has no musical label. His music is deep, few people can understand. When a child, he used to throw a piece of iron against a rock and reproduce all it's sound on a little accordeon. I've seen the most dazzling things from him, like entire pieces where he harmonizes human voices speaking (search for the album: "Lagoa da Canoa, municipio de arapiraca" , and on TV, and listen to him playing the song "Brasileirinho" on his "mustache". He can play almost all musical instruments, and even transform kitchen tools and all things imaginable into them (He's got Perfect Pitch also) It's a pity we can't find many recordings from Hermeto.He composes every day, even for big orchestras. Search for the CD "Hermeto Pascoal in Montreux", it's excellent. The other one: "Elis Regina in montreux" where Hermeto is a guest is excelent also. I didn't meet Mozart, but, I knew Hermeto, and I doubt Mozart could be a greater Genius of music."

"On this album, Hermeto allows himself to be melodious, but also stays true to his quirky self. This makes a gret introduction to the Zappa of Brazil, at least the classical-jazzy side of Frank."
