Every broadcast edition of The Sounds of Brazil is a special one, but it’s always a wonderful treat when our playlist turns to the music of one the world’s most creative and uniquely beautiful voices: Milton Nascimento.
For many, Milton Nascimento’s unique voice defines the true spirit of Brazil: from his deep, rich tenor to one of the most powerfully stimulating falsettos you’ll ever.
Nascimento burst upon the Brazilian music scene in 1963 and he’s actually led two careers. As a songwriter, he has composed compelling melodies which quickly became anthems of modern Brazilian music.
But Milton is also a vocalist with a sound so earthy and natural that his gorgeous falsetto range always comes as a thrilling shock: it seems to have been touched by angels.
Most often, Milton has forged these two talents into eerily beautiful performances of his own unforgettable songs.
I’ll admit it: this playlist was a lot of fun to put together. It captures many favorites from his long career – including duets with Sarah Vaughan, Wayne Shorter and Peter Gabriel.
Jazz great Stanley Turrentine picks up his tenor sax to blow one of his best recordings (Nascimento’s ‘Salt Song’) while Jorge Continentino of UZ22 plays the same instrument to cap off Milton’s ‘Cais’ with loving emotion.
There’s more: I’ll share a surprising story about Milton’s early American roots (one that even the most diligent of web searches might fail to pull up).
I hope you’ll enjoy the show this week!
