Album Review
Don Farrell
Reviewed 2010-12-19 
Nice sounding Brazilian Bossa Nova with a slight experimental-spoof on the style. He did the same thing to Samba in 1975 with an album "Estudando o samba". Tom Ze was one of the influences to the Tropicalia movement ( made fun of the generals in power and good taste in Brazilian popular music) in the 1960's. All tracks are real nice.
***1: 3:50 male vocal, fem chorus mellow cool Bossa Nova
**2: 2:45 slower fem voc & chorus then male raspy vocal
***3: 2:48 simple guitar and non stop vocal rant/dialogue
****4: 3:38 mellow bossa, male vocal with lovely fem chorus
***5: 2:55 straight ahead Bossa Nova
6: 3:15 straight ahead Bossa Nova with fem chorus
***7: 3:53 slower male vocals, Ze in Portuguese, David Byrne in English, fem chorus.
****8: 4:03 dreamy rhythm with fem vocals/chorus deconstructed classic "Bim Bom"
***9: 2:17 vocal raspberries intro then male/fem vocals
***10: 3:39 dreamy rhythm with male & fem vocals
****11: 3:26 nice male vocal/some scat and electronics
***12: 2:37 fem chorus & lovely fem vocal
****13: 3:53 experimental approach, lots of cool sounds
***14: 3:48 dreamy rhythm with male & fem vocals & sounds
