    Miami Herald: Caetano Veloso "So Damn Good"

    As with all good things, Caetano Veloso's 2007 US tour has come to an end. It was with a rousing performance at Miami's Knight Concert Hall last Saturday night that Caetano closed his latest tour, this time featuring the music of his album .

    Prior to the final performance, the Broward-Palm Beach New Times published a profile of this "tour de force," marveling at "his ability to make your stomach quiver or tears well up in the corners of your eyes throughout his career." And though this tour may have come to a close, Caetano assures the paper's Jonathan Cunningham that as long as he can do it, he'll continue to make new music and tour.

    In the article, which you can read at browardpalmbeach.com, Caetano also explains why he'll continue the activist role he's played since the early Tropicália days: "I think it's got to be that way," he says. "Artists fight for the impossible."

    The Miami Herald's Enrique Fernandez was at the Miami show and reports that, while Caetano is indeed a father of Tropicália, he's also "the father of art rock, art pop." "Profoundly Brazilian," Fernandez writes, "he rocks with grace, charm, and sex appeal ... Caetano Veloso is arguably the most sophisticated pop artist anywhere. Everything he does, and has done since the '60s, is popular music as high art ... [offering] the best aspects of John Lennon, Paul Simon, Mick Jagger, and Bob Dylan."

    With such a high-brow pedigree, Fernandez wonders rhetorically how Caetano, at 65, still puts on such a rocking good show: "Perhaps," he answers, "it's that open smile, still seductive after all these years. Or perhaps it's just the fact that he is so damn good."
