A wonderful album


I speak of the LP and not these files. It took me 10 years to get round to buying it when it came out but it's given me sustained pleasure for decades since. Gismonti's guitar is a delight, and Nana Vasconcelos, while he can do the same tricks too often, was pretty fresh doing them here.

The download is ok


It´s a two songs record, both are fine when you download (the length noted is not the real one)

wrong tracklengths?


This album should be two tracks but at like 25 minutes each or something, and the song titles seem to be wrong as well. Anyone tried downloading this yet? If so what did you get? EDIT--I gave it a shot and the MP3s are correct, it is just the listing here that is wrong.

They Say All Music Guide

This reissue of the album recorded in 1977 is a landmark of the careers of Gismonti and percussionist Naná Vasconcelos, his only accompanist here. Recorded in only three days, the album’s concept is based on the history shared by both musicians, according to Gismonti: two boys wandering through a dense, humid forest, full of insects and animals, keeping a 180-feet distance from each other. The album received several international awards, in England, U.S., Germany, and Brazil. It also, changed both artist’s lives: Naná immediately became a disputed international artist, touring worldwide; Egberto returned to Brazil, decided to research Amazon folklore, which would be reflected in his later work. The music is pure and sensitive, challenging and sophisticated, with a broad dynamic range going from haunting, mysterious melodies to full-impact, energetic percussive sounds reminiscent of Brazilian Indians’ batuque. Attention for the re-creation of “Fé Cega, Faca Amolada” (Milton Nascimento/Ronaldo Bastos), foretold with a motif several minutes before the presentation of the integral piece. – Alvaro Neder
