Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

For those who feel Brazilian music has lost momentum, this merrily percussive, samba-laced confection will prove a bracing tonic. The members of the group are hereditary Carioca (Rio-born) sambistas who met and re-met at recording sessions until they decided to do things their own way. While their style harks back to such grassroots traditionalists as Martinho Da Vila, the production values are strictly up-to-date. A stellar convocation of guest artists is on hand to enhance the festivities, including singer-songwriter and Velas label honcho Ivan Lins, the torchy female vocalist Joyce, and journeyman sambista Zeca Pagodinho, who sits in on one of his own compositions. The album has a celebratory, unselfconscious carnival ambiance, as plinking guitars, woodwinds and brass, whining and sobbing cuicas (friction percussion played with an oil-soaked rag), brisk snare drums, and tambourines are propelled by the roaring report of surdo drums. --Christina Roden

5.0 out of 5 stars "retro" samba at it's best October 19, 2000
Format:Audio CD
I give this CD 5 stars because it's exactly what it's described to be, and nothing less. I call this "retro" samba becuase it's nothing but sambas performed in the older, more traditional style. Yet, there are some really nice guest vocals by Ivan Lins; Joyce; Zeca Pagodinho; Domingunhos; and Luizinho SP as well. "SE TEM QUE SER SERA" is put out by the Velas label, who are the same people who released Quarteto Jobim/Morelenbaum, and Guinga's "Suite Leoplodina" - both being excellent Brazilian CD's in their own right. The sound is absolutely splendid. This is an excellent disc to samba to, or to just "kick back" and relax to as well.

1.0 out of 5 stars Garish, oversynthed pagode November 7, 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Whoa! The guest artist list is great, and these musicians are the real deal, but "retro-samba" is exactly what this album is *not.* This is an unfortunate example of (for lack of a better term) "pop" pagode -- slicker than the Fonz's DA, and (unfortunately) as unappealing.
Try these titles instead: "Brazil -- Roots -- Samba" (Rounder); "Casa de Mae Joana" (Blue Jackel) and "This is Samba!" (2 volumes, on Rounder) for a taste of honest-to-goodeness samba at its best. Singer Beth Carvalho's early albums (1960s-mid 1970s) are terrific examples of down-home samba, too -- and she was one of the 1st sambistas to champion true, grass-roots pagode during the 70s. (Look for her "Raizes do Samba" compilation.....)and then there's the peerless Paulinho da Viola: try his "Bebadosamba" and/or its live companion, "Bebadachama." They're both stunners.

Whoa! The guest artist list is great, and these musicians are the real deal, but "retro-samba" is exactly what this album is *not.* This is an unfortunate example of bad "pop" pagode -- slicker than the Fonz's DA, and (unfortunately) as unappealing.
