Milton Nascimento
Pieta

Milton Nascimento is a true musical superstar. Over a 35 year career, he has performed and recorded with stars of jazz, pop, world music and new age. Pietà is Milton’s first US release in six years. This album, dedicated to his mother, is Milton’s strongest artistic statement in years, with bold new songs, many arranged by legendary producer Eumir Deodato.

Nascimento has recorded his best work in years

Brazil nuts: Hub gets hopping to samba, bossa nova, forro and more

In the new Signal Noise Magazine...

...the ambition of his songwriting is equal to the ambition of his production. And his concept. Pieta is a tribute to Nacsimento’s adoptive mother, and the subject calls forth some of Nascimento’s most emotional singing in some time. Like a glass filled beyond its rim, Nascimento’s voice overflows with feeling, cresting in a quivering vibrato that proves that this great voice has lost little of its expressive power.

*****(FIVE STARS)

Finally a US label has the cojones to release this 2003 masterpiece from Brazil--an epic return to action for Nascimento, master of melancholy moods and Beatlesque harmonies.
