"If you never heard of Bahia, go there. This is a beautiful tribute to one of her greatest sons, the composer Dorival Caymmi, hauntingly sung by one of her most beautiful daughters, Jussara Silveira, and produced, scored and performed by one of her greatest musicians, the amazing Luiz Brasil.
If you want to understand what "saudades" means, buy this cd, fly to Salvador, Bahia, stick it on your walkman loud, and drive into town, along the miles of coqueiro-lined beaches, from the open air seafood market at Itapoã to the Porta da Barra, and breathe in the salty sea air and the spirit of Caymmi that shines and lilts and flows from every bar of music, and smile, because you're in Bahia.
Lá Vem A Baiana, O Anjo Da Noite, Você Não Sabe Amar, Saudade De Itapoã are all great versions of great songs. This whole album is a gem."
