Product Description

Amazon.com

The Bahia-born vocalist, composer, and guitarist Caetano Veloso is one the prime architects of the Brazilian Tropicalia sound of the late '60s. That style blended favela samba rhythms and city bossa nova melodies with American rock and Jamaican reggae. Over the years, the Grammy Award-winning Veloso has refined Tropicalia with his hypnotic vocals and brilliant lyrics, as this live date from Rio in 1998 aurally illustrates. Fans of his last CD, Livro, will find the same sophisticated horn and string arrangements by Jacques Morelenbaum gracing the surging Afro-Brazilian beats. The 20 tracks represent the full spectrum of Veloso's music: from his playful take on the Miles Davis-Gil Evans rendition of the traditional song "Prenda Minha" to his bouncy update of Antonio Carlos Jobim's "Meditação." Veloso also reprises the compositions of his tropical partners on Gilberto Gil's "Bem Devager" and "Drão" and Chico Buarque's "Carolina." Along with a zesty remake of "Mel," a hit by his sister Maria Bethania, and his own '70s favorite "Terra," Caetano Veloso shows that he is, indeed, the sound of Brazil. --Eugene Holley Jr.

The orchestra is very impressive.

The CD named after the song I fell in love with was the first of a great sequence of albums that Caetano released throughout almost a decade.

There is something very peaceful I find about this album- great to relax to.

Caetano Veloso is like wine, the older the better. This album recorded throught his latest show - Prenda Minha - is a confirmation that Caetano is essencial the best in Brazilian comtemporary popular music. His new arrangements and interpretation of old and new songs are superb, and with a great team of musicians, he makes this one of his finest moments in his career. I have been his fan for years and I am delighted to attend his latest show in New York and DC and to listen to the album over and over again. His music is universal, being at the same time the best translation of several forms os brazilian music. His style is innovative and uplifting, with lots of carisma and intensity. For someone who would like to be introduced to his music I strongly recommend this album.

Although Caetano has produced quite a few excellent live albums in the last ten years this one is probably the best (I would also recomend Fina Estampa Ao Vivo). It has been recorded in 1998 in Brazil and available for almost two years now, but this year Caetano presented this same show (with a few changes in the acoustic part of the programme) to some lucky Europeans as well. I had the chance to attend the concert in Udine, Italia, and I (together with the rest of the crowd) enjoyed every second of it. Caetano's voice has never sounded stronger live, he's a born performer and the 12-piece group (including 4 Bahian samba drummers) is amazing. The show was full of wit and passion. The CD brings most of the best moments of the 2-hour show, including the selection of Caetano's solo acoustic performances (like Drao or Saudosismo), powerful reneditions of Terra and Mel, I only miss the wonderful Manhata from Livro. Like all Caetano's live albums this one brings us much more than just live versions of the last studio album (Livro). There are, as always, many surprises, including nods to Jobim, Jorge Ben, Djavan and Gilberto Gil among others, which makes Prenda Minha really a must buy for any true fan of Brazilian music.

A very good collection of Caetano's acoustic and percussion rhythms. For those portuguese speaking/understanding, Caetano's prose on #6 is a special dedication to a long time friend, quasi-brother - Gilberto Gil...
Djavan, Tom Jobim and Gal Costa (amongst others) are also interpreted by Caetano.
My favorites on this album are "Sozinho", "Linha do Equador" and "Luz de Tieta".
You can't go wrong by pressing play, and then repeat-all on your CD player!! :-) :-) :-) :-) :-)

I was in my last year of high school when I first heard the song "Estrangeiro" (Foreigner) by Caetano Veloso. It was love at first sight (at first hearing, actually). Initially, I was struck by the power and uniqueness of its sounds. Later, the intelligence and sophistication of its lyrics inspired me. At that time, I was already a Caetano's fan. That song, though, made me start my Veloso's record collection and go to his concert for the first time.
The CD named after the song I fell in love with was the first of a great sequence of albums that Caetano released throughout almost a decade. Followed "Estrangeiro" (1989), among other album, the masterpieces "Circuladô" (1991), "Circuladô Vivo" (1992), "Fina Estampa" (1994), "Fina Estampa ao Vivo" and "Livro" (1997) - the last winning "best album of the year" in the Latin Grammy Award. I bought all of these records and went to all his concerts during the decade that followed. The sequence of good albums was so amazing that I started to believe that their author was infallible; that whatever he produced was unquestionably good. And I don't think I was alone; during the 90s Caetano became a national, maybe even international, unanimity.
Nevertheless, the CD "Prenda Minha" (1999) came to reinforce the Brazilian popular saying that declares that "all unanimity is dumb". The album is not that bad, but Caetano raised our standards to such a level that we always expect his works to near the perfection. Were this record signed by other artist, maybe, I wouldn't be as critic.
This album has actually a very good beginning. I love the sequence composed by the first four songs. The CD opens with a version of the tune "Jorge da Capadócia" by Jorge Ben.

No caben dudas: éste es un gran álbum. Basta escuchar este L.P. en vivo para darse cuenta cómo se edita un disco "ao vivo". Excelente sonido, hermosas y limpias versiones y un exitaso como "Sozinho", que dan ganas de escucharla incansablemente una y otra y otra vez.
El resto es una hora -por momentos demoledora- para disfrutar, sustentada en brillantes versiones como las de "Terra", "Eclipse Oculto" y "Mel".
Caetano, como hacía tiempo que venía demostrándolo, acá hace de un excelente maestro de ceremonias, apoyado por el gran Jack Morelembaum en el cello.

A lo largo de la discografía de Caetano podemos encontrar versiones en vivo de sus más famosos temas. Sin embargo, muy pocas producciones (salgo algunas grabaciones Tropicalistas en LP) se pueden comparar con la energía mostrada en "Prenda Minha", en canciones como "Odara", "Na Linha Do Equador" y en el cierre "A Luz de Tieta" se luce en voz y música, en definitiva, uno de los mejores que he escuchado de Caetano Veloso
