Sarah Vaughan and a Brazilian dream team of instrumentalists,
This review is from: I Love Brazil (Audio CD)
This is the first of Sarah Vaughan's recordings in Brazil with Brazilian material and Brazilian instrumentalists.
Helio Delmiro on guitar, Sergio Barroso and Novelli on bass, Chico Batera and Wilson das Neves on drums, Jose Roberto Bertrami (from Azymuth) and Edson Frederico on piano make up the dream team among other guest soloists. Guitarrist Helio Delmiro specially shines on virtually all tracks!
Milton Nascimento and Dorival Caymmi sings along with Ms. Vaughan each one in their own compositions. A beautiful toast to those great composers but with neglectable results, unfortunately. Antonio Carlos Jobim plays the piano on his "Someone To Light Up My Life".
Repertoire showcases Bossa Nova and post-Bossa Nova standards, all sung in their English versions. A mix of obvious and not-obvious Bossa Nova for Americans, featuring the Bossa standard "The Day It Rained (A Chuva)" as composed by Durval Ferreira.
