  • Congratulations to all of the Nonesuch Records artists who were nominated for the 59th Annual Grammy Awards, announced earlier today by The Recording Academy: Brad Mehldau, Joshua Redman, Rhiannon Giddens, Caetano Veloso & Gilberto Gil, and John Adams. Together, these artists' Nonesuch releases have garnered a total of six nominations this year. The Grammy Awards will be held on Sunday, February 12, 2017, in Los Angeles and will be broadcast live on CBS.

  • Caetano Veloso and Teresa Cristina have brought their world tour to the US for four shows. The concerts, in which Cristina's opening set features music from her new album and DVD, Canta Cartola, begin with a sold-out show at The Town Hall in NYC tonight, followed by a second night there on Thursday and shows at Symphony Center in Chicago on Sunday and Broward Center in Fort Lauderdale on Tuesday. Veloso and Cristina will bring the music back home to Brazil in November, with newly added shows in Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo.

  • About This Album

    2007 Latin Grammy Award Winner

    includes 12 original songs by Caetano Veloso, who recorded them in the spring/summer of 2006 with a rock band of younger musicians: Pedro Sá (electric guitar), Ricardo Dias Gomes (bass, Rhodes piano), and Marcelo Callado (drums); it was produced by Sá and Moreno Veloso. Additionally, Pedro’s brother, Jonas Sá, sings guest vocals on one track.

    “Pedro Sá and Moreno are my sons—the latter, biologically speaking, and both in the familiar sense of the term,” Veloso says. “They are both in their 30s, have a vivid relationship with the routes taken by musical taste in the last decades—as well as making remarkable personal interventions on the direction of these routes. Ricardo Dias Gomes and Marcello Callado are in their 20s. It was Pedro who suggested their names when he heard my themes and my ideas. Our communication was so clear that in a few minutes of rehearsal, the tracks were ready to be recorded. All of them. Not even one got stuck. We recorded everything on two-inch tape, without Pro Tools."

    He continues, “ is not a rock album like the ones I listen to and that interest me: the songs are mine, my voice is still the same, my hair is greyer than it is black, less curly and always shorter than when it was really long—or longer than when I decided to wear it short.”

DescriptionExcerpt: 

Veloso, backed by a young Brazilian trio, creates a surprisingly brash rock sound on this Latin Grammy Award-winning album. Yet, the Boston Globe notes, "The man's voice is as richly seductive and thoughtful as ever." His lyrics "offer intellectual and cultural queries ... suffused with yearning and ambiguous eroticism."
