Wow!!! Velosso was great in his solo in the movie "Frieda". I too would like to know which of his albums to get. Can anyone offer experienced advise?

if you have a Tower Records close to you, they have the best selection on Brazilian music. Speaking of Caetano Veloso, i believe he is the best "pop" artist right now. To introduce yourself to his music probably you should get "Livro" and "Noites do Norte Vivo". To give you an example in an american context about him, he could be Bob Dylan, Michael Jackson, Bruce springsteen. and David Byrne roll into one.
This is a MUST BUY in the genre:
Trio da Paz - Cafe
Can't say enough about these guys! I'm not in the group, don't receive royalties from the label, don't roadie for them, etc., etc.
But get the CD, they're not well known but have stunning technical musicianship, breathtaking interpretations of everything from Gentle Rain to Bach's famous Arioso.
I'm almost willing to offer a money-back guarantee...except I'm cutting a check today to a certain uncle.
