All Music Guide - Jason Birchmeier
A quick survey of the track listing of Warner Music Latina's Chill: Brazil collection is sure you make you salivate if you're into Brazilian music, especially any kind with a bossa nova slant. Marcos Valle, Milton Nascimento, Gilberto Gil, Antonio Carlos Jobim, Bebel Gilberto, Jo?o Gilberto, Os Cariocas, Elis Regina, Jorge Ben, Banda Black Rio -- these are just some of the most-recognizable names, not to mention many of the others present here who may not be overly familiar to anyone not knee-deep into the many wonders of Brazilian music.

A quick survey of the track listing of Warner Music Latina's Chill: Brazil collection is sure you make you salivate if you're into Brazilian music, especially any kind with a bossa nova slant. Marcos Valle, Milton Nascimento, Gilberto Gil, Antonio Carlos Jobim, Bebel Gilberto, João Gilberto, Os Cariocas, Elis Regina, Jorge Ben, Banda Black Rio -- these are just some of the most-recognizable names, not to mention many of the others present here who may not be overly familiar to anyone not knee-deep into the many wonders of Brazilian music. And too, these artists are represented by standout recordings, not cheaply licensed latter-day efforts or anything else even mildly disappointing. So does Chill: Brazil play like a greatest-hits of Brazil collection? Well, kinda -- the music here is certainly top-shelf Brazilian music of the late 20th century, spanning a few decades and even dipping into the 21st century, but it's not presented like a greatest-hits album. It's actually a mix album. The tracks are subtly blended into one another, resulting in a seamless listen that transitions well, even as it time travels. Much praise goes to Marcos Valle for compiling this excellent collection of music. He's not credited with the "soft mix," but his expertise and taste is much in evidence. As for that "soft mix," it can be mildly annoying if you're the type of person who likes to edit your CDs. You know, like if you were to pick and choose some tracks from this collection for one of your oh-so-awesome play lists. If you're one of those bedroom DJs who prefers downloads and CD-Rs to commercial product like this, you're going to have slightly screwy intros and outros for the songs you lift from this mix. That heads-up aside, there's really nothing to complain about here well, maybe the "chill" billing is a misnomer, as this is far from a run-of-the-mill "chillout" Muzak mix. Warner Music Latina has put together a great series of collections here -- from the double-disc packaging to the superstar compiler, to the soft mixing, to the black-check licensing -- and anyone even slightly into Brazilian music is sure to eat these collections up.

    Can't get enough of this cd

    I have listened to this cd everyday driving into work for a year and I still haven't tired of it. It works to calm the madness of an hour city commute and reinvigorates me every time. This is more than a cd it's a drug. One becomes addicted. The voices of Brazilian music are an incredible life force. The way this cd is put together is genius. It comes on slow.

    A Magnificent sample of music from Brazil

    The Barnes and Noble Corporate Store in the city of New York has a list of CDs to be played in their stores speakers systems nationwide.I had the chance to hear this cd while I was browsing at the store here.I do recommed it to all those that know how to enjoy music from Brazil. I went to the counter and it was sold out and the store had 5 more ordered on the way.
