Brazil's Nascimento is justly famous for his otherworldly voice and his nylon string guitar sound. But on this fine album he reminds his fans that he's also a splendid songwriter. There are a couple of choice covers here, including Luiz Henrique's "Casa Aberta," and "Cantalope Island," which boasts guest appearances by composer Herbie Hancock and Pat Metheny.
