    Daily News: Caetano Veloso Deserves "Best Living Songwriter"

    In today's New York Daily News, Carolina Gonzalez previews Caetano Veloso's upcoming New York City performances, November 19 and 20 at the Nokia Theater, and has a friendly suggestion for the folks who hand out the Grammys: "If the Latin Recording Academy gave out a Grammy for Best Living Songwriter, Caetano Veloso would walk away handily with the prize." (While that's not yet an option, Caetano has grabbed two nominations for his new record, —Best Singer-Songwriter Album and Best Brazilian Song for "Não Me Arrependo" off the album.)

    In an e-mail exchange with Gonzalez, Caetano relates the story of his first trip to New York two-and-a-half decades ago, in which he and his eldest son Moreno, then 10, performed a song they had written together. The two remain close collaborators: Moreno, now 35, co-produced the new record, and, according to Caetano, has "brought wisdom and clarity to it all."

    In praise of the new album Gonzalez writes: " may be Veloso's 40th record, but he is by no means relying on old formulas ... Veloso's songwriting and voice make music that's delightfully unpredictable."
