Editorial Reviews

The Red Hot Organization and Entertainment One Music establish a new partnership to produce Red Hot + Rio 2, a contemporary take on the late 60s Brazilian Tropicália movement. The album sheds new light on the songs of this influential, politically charged era, which changed the culture of the country forever, and continues to act as a beacon to countless creative and alternative musicians around the world.

Its also the natural successor to the 1996 original, bossa nova inspired Red Hot + Rio. That legendary album literally altered the course of Brazilian popular music at the turn of this century, inspiring many, if not all, of the younger artists who have contributed to this new project. Upon the release of the first volume, Vogue called the album the latest and the hippest while Entertainment Weekly said it was an inspired tribute.

Red Hot + Rio 2 is the latest entry in the series of tribute albums produced by the Red Hot Organization to raise money for HIV/AIDS awareness and prevention. The compilation features 34 original collaborations between Brazils legendary musicians and some of the best of today s international indie, R&B, and pop artists.

Format: Audio CD
The cause is a great one, and most of the music is very good. This eclectic double album of tropicália, bossa nova, samba, forró, and pop collaborations by Brazilian and international stars is all over the map. As with a majority of benefit albums that throw together disparate performers and elements, it's a hit-or-miss affair. While the instrumental accompaniment is top-notch -- as cool as a breeze on Ipanema Beach -- the languorous Portuguese and English-language vocals sometimes stray into listlessness, and a few, like those featuring Seu Jorge, are downright off-key.

Still, there's a certain rough-hewn charm to this collection's inconsistent style. Each track surprises you with a shift in tone. My favorite tracks feature newer artists like Bebel Gilberto & Mayra Andrade and groups like Forró in the Dark & Os Mutantes. If you're a fan of Brazilian music, or the collision of cultures, or the first "Red Hot + Rio" album, or the American stars on these two CDs (Aloe Blacc, John Legend, David Byrne, Beck), then you should enjoy this excursion into a musical world that's very different from the one you grew up in. The sound grows on you!

A number of these songs are covers of standards (Um Girassol Da Cor Do Seu Cabelo, Águas De Março, O Leãozinho, Baby), so if you are new to the music of Brazil, you would do well to seek out original recordings by some of the classic artists on this collection: Caetano Veloso, Marisa Monte, Joyce Moreno, and Tom Zé. Among the greatest performers in the tradition are Maria Bethania, Gal Costa, Gilberto Gil, Jorge Ben, Astrud Gilberto, Milton Nascimento, and Elis Regina; their albums are compulsory listening.

Or to get your feet wet in an Amazon of sound, you may want to start with compilations.

The original "Red Hot & Rio", released in 1996, was important for many reasons. Beyond being for an excellent cause it featured what would soon be a heavy, popular genre in the late 90's up to mid 00's. What followed were various series featuring similar approaches - Brazilectro, Glucklich, Brazilution, Nova Latino, Brazilian Love Affair, Bossa Mundo...Japan Meets the World - all of these were series which would follow (except Glucklich 1). RH&R featured collaborations and an abundance of great popular artists from around the world and was a tribute to Antonio Carlos Jobim, MPB and Bossa Nova. Marisa Monte, Astrud Gilberto, Ana Caram, Gilberto Gil, Cazuza (who did pass away of the disease), Bebel Gilberto and several others highlighted the Brazilian artists while David Byrne, Stereolab, George Michael, Maxwell and others highlighted some of the other guests. What we have here is a similar approach but just different enough to give it the fresh take that it deserves. Though said to focus on Tropicalia, it is also heavy in bossa-nova and MPB and I'd say 'Sambadelic' rock. Beco Dranoff, who worked closely with Bebel Gilberto on a number of occasions was one of the producers of this one and between him, Joao Parahyba, Carlinhos Brown and Mario Caldato Jr., you have incredible musical knowledge at work.How does it stack up to the first?

Fairly well, but falls a little short. This is a two disc compilation that pays appropriate hommage to the first while moving forward; a difficult task given the nu-brazil genre from a few years ago. But the quality of some of the tracks just isn't there. Provided are new takes to classics by Lo Borges, Caetano Veloso, Joyce, Os Mutantes and many others.

wanna feel like Rio while sitting on a beach? This is the album. Sunny, cool, jazz beat -- and every track gives you a different vibe, from John Legend's cool "Love I've Never Known" to the wacky Marina Gasolina (whoever came up with that name??)

And -- by the way -- proceeds go to a great cause! (HIV/ AIDS...) Like the first Rio album (and also red hot & blue, which is my fav) Red Hot satisfies once again.

I heard this touted on music blogs and radio shows. Based on the charitable nature of the enterprise and the success of some of their earlier releases, I ordered it. Compilations of this sort are always a mixed bag, but the ratio of serendipity to mediocrity here is disappointing. For me, in the whole two-disk collection, only 4 or 5 tracks stood out. YMMV..
