Travessia: The Beginning
sayonarasomerset-butler | London United Kingdom | 04/13/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This was Milton's first album and a musst for anyone interested in his music. My two favorite tracks are Canção do Sal and the title track Travessia. There is a lot of emotion and feelings of hope in this album, which is very relevant considering that it was recorded during the period of the military dictatorship in Brazil. Many of his later albums would be heavily censored, but this one escaped to show Brazil and the world that Milton was here to stay."
The very first and must-have album by Milton Nascimento

"
This is the very first album by Mr. Nascimento with string arrangements by the great Luiz Eca and with rhythm section by famous Luiz Eca and Bebeto Castilho's Tamba Trio.

An extraordinary musical background for a beginning artist, a fabulous composer and crooner who had just entered the scene.

The track list is practically a list of standards of the so-called 'sound of Minas' which Nascimento brought to life along with his peers from the State of Minas Gerais in Brazil, a group self-called 'Clube da Esquina' (the Corner Club).

All tracks became standards of post-Bossa Nova music in Brazil. They include 'Travessia' (Bridges as recorded by Tony Bennett years later), 'Tres Pontas', 'Cancao do Sal' (also with an extraordinary rendition by Elis Regina), 'Morro Velho' and 'Outubro'.

This is a reference album of post-Bossa Nova Brazilian music.
Also a reference album of modern Brazilian crooning.
All sung in Portuguese."
