Prenda Minha Ao Vivo

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Mark Schwartz
Brazil's pop poet has been reborn before -- Veloso's only competition in the chameleon department may be David Bowie -- but with the sublime Livro, the dapper Bahian reached the apex of concurrent popular and critical acclaim. The live document Prenda Minha "My Gift" puts it all on display: Veloso's charming synthesis of wide-eyed flowerchild wonder, contemporary classical experimentation, urbane philosophizing, and funky Afro-Brazilian devotion comes through loud and clear on this collection of favorites old "Terra" and new "A Luz de Tieta" -- which paradoxically avoids anything off the Livro album. Backed by a 12-piece band directed by longtime Caetano crony Jacques ...

Barnes & Noble - Mark Schwartz
Brazil's pop poet has been reborn before -- Veloso's only competition in the chameleon department may be David Bowie -- but with the sublime Livro, the dapper Bahian reached the apex of concurrent popular and critical acclaim. The live document Prenda Minha "My Gift" puts it all on display: Veloso's charming synthesis of wide-eyed flowerchild wonder, contemporary classical experimentation, urbane philosophizing, and funky Afro-Brazilian devotion comes through loud and clear on this collection of favorites old "Terra" and new "A Luz de Tieta" -- which paradoxically avoids anything off the Livro album. Backed by a 12-piece band directed by longtime Caetano crony Jacques Morelenbaum on cello, Veloso is at once mannered and warm, like a favorite professor rolling up his sleeves at the campus watering hole. Which isn't to suggest that Caetano shows any real sign of aging: his voice is still wondrously supple, even if it sinks more readily into its creamy depths these days than bubbles up into its swooning upper register. But it's hard not to hear Veloso as some kind of elder statesman when he's literally reading at length from his book, Verdade Tropical. For his North American dates, Veloso graciously read in his British-accented English; in this 1998 Rio concert he understandably warbles in Portuguese. But the prof is always willing to learn from his students, as evidenced on the drum 'n' bass flavored "Odara" and the axé hit "A Luz de Tieta," where he's joined by his son Moreno.
All Music Guide - Alvaro Neder
In this uneven album, Caetano Veloso used cool jazz and Gil Evans' orchestrations as the raw material for his synthesis with contemporary Bahian rhythms -- "Terra," from 1978, is an epic description in which Sketches of Spain influences dialogue with their rhythmic similarity with Bahian grooves. The track is the best of the album, which brings no news other than the interpretation of "Prenda Minha," from the gaúcho folklore, and the ridiculous yet highly rewarding financially track "Sozinho" which may be the best reason for a Veloso album reaching the cipher of 1,200,000 sold copies for the first time, which propelled the selling of the album and its presence in the top radio charts. "Jorge de Capadócia" Jorge Ben, 1975 is an emotional and beautiful delivery of the important song, but included in this repertory after Racionais MC's recorded it, it sounds a bit opportunistic -- the visceral phrase "eu estou vestido com as roupas e as armas de Jorge" I am dressed with the clothes and weapons of Jorge's," a reference to the religious syncretism that unifies Saint Georges and Oxum in a Negro entity of protection, resistance, and survival sounds incongruous when delivered by this elegant gentleman in an expensive suit. Musically, the excellent cool jazz orchestral arrangements for "Esse Cara," "Prenda Minha," "Terra," "Meditação" a bossa classic propelled by a Bahian percussion, the also splendid Latin jazz arrangements for "Mel" recorded by sister Maria Bethânia, here sung in Spanish in a convenient Mercosul version, and the delicate, straight voice/violão renditions for "Bem Devagar," "Drão," "Saudosismo," and the beautiful Chico Buarque song "Carolina" make the album worthwhile -- even if listeners must endure the shameless plug for Veloso's book, the pretentious Verdade Tropical.

    Caetano is always a success

    Caetano is a living music genius.Included in the cd is the soundtrack of the brazilian movie Tieta Do Agreste(1996) with Sonia Braga. Odara is a classic and Nao Enche will make you laugh.
