CD Reviews

A tempting mixture of styles again from Man Tran
Matthew Haworth | Clitheroe, Lancashire United Kingdom | 03/10/2003
(4 out of 5 stars)

"The title of this album is 'Brazil'. I'm not trying to insult your intelegence but I want to highlight the fact that this album is designed to bring the wonderful music of Brazil to the masses. This it does to a certain extent, however I do feel that it should be mentioned that you will not hear Brazillian music in the traditional sense.
The Manhattan Transfer have, once again, provided us with a gem of an album which introduces us to a fusion of jazz and world music. This is combined with a unique strain of 'listenability' to which we have become acustomed to from their music. We have the elements of South American music combined with modern jazz harmony and rhythm. The music of the great brazilian composer Djawan I find is perhaps the most successful on the album - especially the first track 'Soul Food To Go'. This album is well worth a buy - try it, you might like it!"
Beautiful songs, excellent rhythms

"This is a collection of very beautiful and accessible songs. It's really a mixture of Latin melodies with pop-oriented lyrics.I agree with another reviewer who said "Capim" alone was worth the price of the CD. I don't speak Portuguese, but I've listened to it so much that I can sing along."
Yes want somemore!

"Agree whole-heartedly that this is definitely one of MT's best. It has a certain pizzazz & unique stamp to it. Latin is always both Cool & Hot. Yep, "Capim" is also my favourite but I also love "So you say". Forrest conservationists must definitely approve of this album. It's just got everything going for it hasn't it ? Just inspiring ... it recharges me everytime!"
