BossaCucaNova's rather ... shall we say, languid pace of releases doesn't mean these young producers lack talent or inspiration. Presumably they've just been busy. Still, this live album pops out of the blue, a belated tribute to bossa nova's 50th anniversary featuring lesser-known but still key players in the genre's explosion: Joao Donato, Roberto Menescal, Wilson Simoninha. The band's electronic fiddling with classic tracks like "Aguas de Marco" and "Samba De Verao" doesn't necessarily add much to these songs, but it makes for a pleasant and occasionally transporting listen.
