BruMa: Celebrating Milton Nascimento, by Owen Maxwell – Ottawa Life – Canada

As a celebration of Milton Nascimento, Antonio Adolfo is able to let his performances sing on this record. The swerving sax of “Fe Cega Faca Amolada” are like the string of a delicate tapestry, often surprising but always tasteful. Though “Outoubro” is a more sombre piece, the trumpets are able to add enough colour around the building chords to keep the song tense more often than not. There’s more glamour to “Encontros E Despedidas” as it glides with a lounge-tinged jazz charm. This all mixes beautifully in the rising and tumbling “Caxanga” which uses its solos to ramp up and rein in the overall explosion of the band.
