    2007 Latin Grammy Award Winner

    Caetano Veloso's Nonesuch CD catalog is now available from the Nonesuch Store; however, free album MP3 downloads, available with other discs in the Store, are not yet included with these CDs.

    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."
