Pedro Moraes
"Claroescuro"
(Independent, 2010)
----------------------------------------------------
Brazilian singer-composer Pedro Moraes started his career as a devotee of traditional samba; his first album featured a wealth of previously-unrecorded songs from samba masters such as Cartola, Paulinho Da Viola and Nelson Sargento, played in the smooth-yet-rootsy style of Martinho Da Vila and Joao Bosco. Here on his second album, Moraes dives deeper into the world of ornate pop crossovers familiar to fans of the MPB of the 1970s and '80s; although there's still a samba vibe underlying the album, a glossier, more boldly fusion-oriented sound pervades, with a strong debt to jazz-oriented MPB-ers such as Milton Nascimento. Pat Metheny-ish guitars and air electric bass mixes with heavy, electronica-tinged backbeats -- I recoiled at the first few notes, but then found myself drawn in. If you enjoy funky pop-samba crossover stars like Carlinhos Brown, Simoninha, or Seu Jorge, you might really dig this too. (DJ Joe Sixpack, Slipcue Guide To Brazilian Music)
