CAETANO VELOSO - Não Me Arrependo (2006)

The mighty Caetano Veloso, one of Brazil's most endearing singer-songwriters, has probably touched on almost every style of music that came along since the 1960s. One of the architects of Brazil's Tropicalia movement, is alive and well and still recording. He is currently touring North America, and I will catch his show when he comes through town.

This song is from his newest studio album, which is back to a guitar/bass/drums format. The bass starts off with a Lou Reed style, but nicely adds electric piano to the mix, giving it a more organic retro feel. He his still using his voice in his typical dramatic style, and the whole album is quite solid as a group effort. It's impressive that he still coming out with good material after 40 years solid!

Ooh like this! I listened to Chuva, Suor E Cerveja right before, what a difference. It's really mature and soulful.

Can't wait for tonight!
