    Caetano Veloso and David Byrne: "Live at Carnegie Hall" Offers "Borderless Bliss," Says LA Times

    In 2004, Caetano Veloso curated a week of special concerts at New York’s Carnegie Hall and invited his longtime friend and collaborator David Byrne to join him for the show captured on the new album Caetano Veloso & David Byrne: Live at Carnegie Hall, released earlier this month on Nonesuch Records. Each performs an acoustic set of his own songs and both also perform together. MOJO gives Live at Carnegie Hall four stars, and the album has made the Los Angeles Times' "In Rotation" feature of what Times writers and contributors are listening to right now.

    "Respected songwriters who for the last four decades have in similar ways chronicled their respective cultures, the pair trade stripped-down renditions of some of their classics on this live document and in doing so offer borderless bliss," writes Times music critic Randall Roberts. He selects Veloso's joyful take on the Talking Heads tune "(Nothing but) Flowers" as both a highlight of the album and a good representative of the collection as a whole, concluding: "Such joy is evident throughout Live at Carnegie Hall.”
