Product Description

On Uma Batida Diferente (A Different Beat), Bossacucanova successfully continue the mission they started with their previous Ziriguiboom/Six Degrees releases, Revisited Classics (1998) and Brasilidade (2001), updating the classic samba and bossa nova sound and bringing it to a contemporary audience. Produced, performed and recorded in Rio de Janeiro by the trio during the first half of 2004, this new release features an incredible array of special guests. From the classic sound of key figures from the original bossa nova generation such as guitarist/songwriter Roberto Menescal (Bossacucanova's Marcio's own father) and Marcos Valle to the modern beats and production of label-mates Zuco 103 The album also features the samba soul grooves and vocals of Trio Mocotó and a rare appearance by the amazing Orlann Divo Also present are a couple members of the new generation of acclaimed singer/songwriters, Celso Fonseca and Adriana Calcanhoto Uma Batida Diferente is the culmination of years of research and love for the past, the present, and the future of Brazilian music.

For their third album, the merry pranksters of Bossacucanova are up to their old tricks but the magic is stronger than ever. Brazilian bossa nova was born in the 1960s and soon took the world by storm. Like all great make-out music, it was so laid-back it was virtually prone. But this was a multi-layered phenomenon, an intellectual yet lushly melodic sound constructed over a swaying, subtly irresistible rhythmic undertow. DJ Marcelinho DaLua, bassist Márcio Menescal and keyboardist Alexandre Moreira have been deftly updating the groove's whispery charms, granting it a modern context via audacious, creatively applied beats and electronica. If anything, they've taken the metamorphosis a bit further this time. However, their touch remains reverent, humorous, inventive and miles removed from overkill. Just how this youthful trio has managed to emphasize the style's muted jazz inflections while kicking out the jams is a delightful conundrum and invites repeated listening. --Christina Roden

You know how sometimes an artist's debut is a smashing success but the follow-up is disappointing, then maybe the third can be a hair better than the second or a hair worse? This act out of Rio, known for dropping beats on old Brazilian classics on the Ziriguiboom/Crammed label (Six Degrees in the USA) is like the reverse of this. Their debut in 1998 titled "Classics Revisited" was pretty popular and good at the time but suffered with the cliched beats and sounds. Not a timeless recording. Brasilidade followed up in 2001 and was a noticeable improvement and featured mroe of one of the DJ's father's... Roberto Menescal. This one, their third real feature takes off where that one left off and is yet another improvement and features some impressive musicians!

Who are those musicians? For one, Cris Delanno returns and features on at least 3 of the tracks. Roberto Menescal features even more on this one than Brasilidade and his track "Feitinha Pro Poeta" is fantastic. It has that sort of voice-over music xinga that's pure Brazilian. And "Bom Dia Rio", the track that starts the cd out, has a gentle samba beat to it and Cris's breezy singing is perfect for the track. Trio Mocoto feature in the fun "Vai Levando" - a song guaranteed to make you smile. Marcos Valle kicks in on "Queria", a good track with his new style and BossaCucaNova's trademark beats. And another one I have to mention - Orlandivo's on the remake to "Onde Anda Meu Amor" along with Cris Delanno to close the CD. What a legend, and what a great take although I preferred Salome De Bahia's powerful remake with Reminiscence Quartet. I think my favorite song is the remake to "Aguas De Marco" as done by Cris Delanno, who actually sings it in English. It just sounds really, really cute.

WOW, These guys have done it again, and this time even better.

I just cannot imagine what are they going to come up with next time around.

In the mean time, let's talk about this Superb Album; there is just so much to entertain yourself with here.

1) If you consider the selection of the songs (great Bossa Nova gems masterfully renewed like: Bonita, Aguas de Marco, Feitinha Pro Poeta and Onde Anda Meu Amor among many others).

2) Their guests: Leo Gandelman, Trio Mocoto, Celso Fonseca, Cris Delanno, three geniuses that have collaborated with Azymuth in the past: Jota Moraes, Sidinho and Laudir de Oliveira, etc. etc.)

3. Their Special guests, Monsters of the original Bossa Nova movement (Roberto Menescal, Marcos Valle and Orlandivo).

and most importantly,

4). Their special and amazing participation to a new wave of Bossa Nova/Jazz/Electronica in the world. Take for example songs like "Bonita" and "Feitinha Pro Poeta"; songs that were pretty much forgotten and BossaCucaNova has re-discovered them and polished them superbly.

If you like: Brazilian Music, Bossa Nova, Brazilian Jazz, Electronica and a good amount of advanced musical taste, get this CD at once and get ready to be blown away by these hiper-geniuses.

To start this brief review the album is superb. Well done and imaginative. Blending different beats ( Batida ) in a tastefull way. I have heard many takes on the classics on this album and this are well done and have a new look. The sweet Bom dia Rio this album first track transport you rigth to the shores of Copacabana's Luxurious Posto 6. Feitinha pro poeta makes you wonder on that perfect girl in Rio while listening to the tribute to the composer of so many beutiful songs and poems Vinicius de Moraes. Taking all this into consideration this album is a must have to anyone.

Catch tunes (especially cut 4), excellent production, a variety of beats

and vocals all combine to break not only the standard Brazilian music

mold, but the dry staid mold of music in general nowadays.

Try it, you'll like it!

Um jeito gostoso e melodioso de se escutar a boa e velha bossanova. Trata-se de uma aula sobre como customizar uma música sem descaracterizá-la, respeitando sua originalidade porém acrescentado-a um toque a mais de "brasilidade".Arranjos exclusivos permissíveis somente a esses músicos que lapidaram seus acordes para encantar seus autores e ouvintes.

This album, unlike Bossacucanova's previous album, combines fresh beats with bossanova without detracting from those qualities that makes bossanova so great in the first place. Great guest appearances. A fantastic CD.

Produced, performed and recorded in Rio de Janeiro by the trio during the first half of 2004, Uma Batida Diferente is both a classic Brazilian album and a big departure into the future. The overall sound and the feel are more relaxed and organic than ever, but the beats and melodies are guaranteed to shake any dance floor around the world.

Following in the footsteps of their previous works, an incredible array of special guests is at hand to enhance the Bossacucanova sound and vision. From the classic sound of key figures from the original bossa nova generation such as guitarist/songwriter Roberto Menescal (Bossacucanova's Marcio's own father) and Marcos Valle to the ultramodern beats and production of Amsterdam's Zuco 103 (on Dorival Caymmi's standard "Samba Da Minha Terra").

The album also features the samba soul grooves and vocals of Trio Mocotó (on Chico Buarque's 70s classic "Vai Levando") and a rare appearance by the amazing Orlann Divo (on his evergreen tune "Onde Anda Meu Amor", also featuring the great Bebeto on guitar). Also present are a couple members of the new generation of acclaimed singer/songwriters : Celso Fonseca and Adriana Calcanhoto (on "Just a Samba" and "Previsão" respectively).

The new sound of the São Paulo scene is represented by Wilson Simoninha's charming funky vocals (on an updated version of Chico Buarque's "Essa Moça Tá Diferente"). Last but not least is regular Bossacucanova collaborator Cris Delano, whose vocals grace three tracks.
