CD Reviews

The Morning of the Carnival
Russell L. Windle | Dallas, TX United States | 08/12/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"In 1958 in Cannes a Brazilian Movie set not only the movie world on a spin, but the music world went along for the ride. The Black Orpheus would become the vehicle that would introduce the world to the music of Luiz Bonfia and Antonio Carlos Jobim, This album remains faithful to the movie soundtrack. From the opening "A Felicidade" to the closing "Samba De Orfeo", My favorite from this album and the movie is "Manha De Carnaval" (Morning of the Carnival) its haunting and longing themes are truly beautiful. Any lover of true Brazilian music must have this CD, Bravo Trio Da PAz"
Better than the original soundtrack
Voodoo Soup 9000 | Your mom's house, USA | 03/09/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Yes, I feel that this album done by Trio da Paz surpasses the original soundtrack to the movie Black Orpheus for two reasons. Firstly and most importantly, the original soundtrack is much more of a depiction of the movie on CD. The sounds of the movie are dubbed overtop the songs and the tracks change abruptly. This makes it abrasive to listen to and enjoy. Secondly, Trio da Paz is an incredible group and their expressions really capture the themes and intentions of Jobim and Bonfa. If you felt that Manhã de Carnaval, the main theme to the movie, was haunting and evocative in its original form, you will greatly love and appreciate what has been done on this album. I've seen Trio da Paz live more than once, and each time they play they have copies of this album available for purchase and mention it sometime during a set on stage. They feel very strongly about their work here and that should say something about the emotion in this album."
A great CD, definately not out of print

"This is a great CD, i will not argue otherwise, but the seller who is advertising that the CD is out of print, and wants $70 is trying to swindle you. I just bought it at a concert at Binghamton University for $15."
