Verde [2005]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Jonathan Widran
The exotic, one of a kind Brazilian guitarist, singer, and rhythmic mouth and body percussionist has had a stop-and-start career with turns as mysterious and intriguing as her music. After splashing on the scene with her Chesky debut Solo in 1994, continuing the stir including vast critical acclaim with Rhythms 1995 and releasing Chameleon on Verve in 1997, Badi Assad suffered from a series of personal issues that drew her back home for a few years. Fans who were excited about her 2003 re-emergence on the trio date Three Guitars with Larry Coryell and John Abercrombie will be beside themselves with the long-awaited Verde, her first solo project in six years.

All Music Guide - Jonathan Widran
The exotic, one of a kind Brazilian guitarist, singer, and rhythmic mouth and body percussionist has had a stop-and-start career with turns as mysterious and intriguing as her music. After splashing on the scene with her Chesky debut Solo in 1994, continuing the stir including vast critical acclaim with Rhythms 1995 and releasing Chameleon on Verve in 1997, Badi Assad suffered from a series of personal issues that drew her back home for a few years. Fans who were excited about her 2003 re-emergence on the trio date Three Guitars with Larry Coryell and John Abercrombie will be beside themselves with the long-awaited Verde, her first solo project in six years. Those expecting a typical Brazilian vocal album -- she explains the title as "the shades of the Brazilian rain forest" -- will be surprised by Assad's versatility, which incorporates rhythmic textures from around the world. She opens with the very African-flavored voice and dense percussion call-and-response "Cheguei Meu Povo" and a vocal percussion pitter patter interlude before tapping into a sound more typical of classic romantic samba "Basica". That sultry side is balanced by her more aggressive vocal and guitar on the feisty "Nao Adianta," which blends modern rock influences with indigenous soundscaping, complete with birdcalls. Other tracks have slight classical leaning, and there's even a little avant-garde oddity apparent on the brief "Feminina." More mainstream ears will be glued to her sly, sexy reading of U2's "One" and soaring, folk- and chamber music-tinged take on Björk's dramatic "Bachelorette," which further confirms Assad's incredible willingness to tackle exotic challenges. Though all the stylistic zigzagging is fascinating, Assad is first and foremost a vocalist of heartbreaking intensity, and tracks like the mournful "Bom Dia Tristeza" best reflect her ability to penetrate the heart.

    Great Album

    Badi Assad is an unique and heartfelt Portugese and English artist from Brazil and if one of their most talented performers. With a captivating voice and terrific classical guitar, clarinet, and percussion skills, her creativity, emotions, and personality definetly shows on the different tracks of her records and allows her to stand out from other artists out there. It is difficult to classify her type of music since it is a mix of latin, jazz, classical, and bossa nova. Each song on her album has a different feel, from soothing and relaxing to playful and upbeat, which in turn gives a little something for everyone who listens to her records. The song "One" by U2 and "Bachelorette" by Bjork are also covered on her album. Badi has also been named "Best Acoustic Fingerstyle Player" and for having the "Best Classical Album of the Year" by Guitar Player Magazine.

    Great Artist

    After hearing Badi Assad's latest album "Verde" from one of my friends, I became a big fan of hers. I really enjoyed the style and creativity of her work. Badi is an amazing singer (both English and Portuguese) and has terrific percussion and guitarist skills. By listening to the different tracks on her records, you are able to realize the passion she has behind her music and it definitely seems to define her emotions and personality behind it all. She is a unique artist who likes to incorporate different sounds and styles into her music to make it stand out among all other songs. I personally enjoyed the cover versions on her record that she did on "Bachelorette" by Bjork and "One" by U2, and "In My Little White Top."
