Product Description:

In this live double-album release, Gal Costa, at the top of her experienced vocal qualities and expression, pays tribute to Tom Jobim, covering a great number of his classics, helped by excellent musicians and orchestra. It seems that her main concern was to avoid some retro-bossa inference, and the arrangements and orchestrations try, whenever possible, to avoid Milton Banana's classic bossa drumming and other symptoms -- but some arrangements are quite the same, as the classic flute introduction for "Chega de Saudade" (No More Blues, with massive participation of the audience). It is hard to say something new in these songs unless some deconstruction is involved because almost all of them are enormously popular, having received uncountable renditions worldwide -- and Costa, a mainstream singer, is not into modernity, preferring to stick to faithful renditions. The album is an excellent choice for Jobim and Costa fans, but it lacks an innovative quality. ~ Alvaro Neder
