Toninho Horta – Belo Horizonte

A fantastic return to form for the legendary Toninho Horta – the Brazilian singer and guitarist who first rose to fame in the company of Milton Nascimento at the start of the 70s – then created a tremendous musical legacy of his own! This double-length set has Horta working in some great jazzy territory – that spacious, soulful style that marked all the members of Nascimento’s “corner club” from Minas Geraes – an approach that seems to embrace elements of fusion and progressive styles, but give them a warmer, more soulful Brazilian setting – all while never losing any of the sophistication of their inspirations. The set features guest work from Joyce, Joao Bosco, and Lisa Ono – and the group also features Robertinho Silva on percussion, William Galison on harmonica, and Nivaldo Ornelas on tenor sax. Titles include “Dieb”, “O Poder De Um Olhar”, “Saguin”, “Durango Kid”, “Paris”, “Samba Sagrado”, “Aqui O”, “Belo Horizonte”, “Ceu De Brasilia”, and “Meu Canario Vizinho Azul”.  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
