Brazil Samba
Pablo Parks | Bayonet Point, Florida | 10/06/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Many loath this collection and say it is dated and that David Byrne did not make the best possible selections to represent classic Samba music. But this is one heck of a CD. The two opening tracks by Clara Nunes will leave you mesmerized by those vocals and sad over what could have been if not for her tragic death. Beth Carvahlo on track 7 is one of the best Samba numbers from the 80s I've ever heard. Many other big name artists from Samba's past are represented here and while maybe they aren't represented by their best works, they are displayed well and this is one nice collection."
Quintessential Samba

"A masterpiece released in 1989, and probably the reason why David Byrne kept pushing the exploration of world music. A Must Have."
Marvelously lush, sexy, voluptuous music!

"This was my introduction to Samba, and is one of my all-time favorite albums. I can't understand a word of it, since I don't speak Portuguese, but that doesn't matter in the slightest. The rhythms and musicianship, the vocals and recording quality, but mainly the joyous happy SOUND of it remains a treat every time it plays. Writing this review reminded me there is more out there, so I just ordered the first collection, and am off to look for more from Clara Lunes and Alcione, two of the most seductive, husky-voiced women on the planet. Gals will find their counterparts in Cino Monteiro and Martinho Da Silva. Fabulous."
