Luz

Pop - Released March 25, 1982 | Epic

This album marked Djavan's association with American producers. After signing with CBS, he recorded this album in the U.S.A. (in Portuguese), which was produced by Ronnie Foster. For that occasion, Quincy Jones acquired the publishing rights of many of his songs through Djavan's own publisher Luanda. The album is divided between a romantic section and swinging tunes. "Pétala" and "Açaí" (pop ballads), "Nobreza," and "Banho de Rio" (orchestral canções) take charge of the romantic part. "Luz," "Capim," "Sina," "Samurai," "Esfinge," and "Minha Irmã" are the swinging segment. The interesting harmonies/melodies and the jazz-like arrangements of this section aroused interest for Djavan's music in the U.S.A. and some of these songs and others were recorded by Manhattan Transfer, among others. The album had important guest artists: Stevie Wonder, Ernie Watts, Hubert Laws, Harvey Mason, Abraham Laboriel, Raul de Souza, and the conducting of Oscar Castro-Neves, and others; several hits were included, such as "Pétala," "Capim," "Sina," "Samurai," and "Açaí." © Alvaro Neder /TiVo

By the time he recorded his third album, Seduzir, Djavan was a superstar in Brazil and was attracting attention in American jazz, R&B, and pop circles as well. Though his style inspires comparisons to fellow Brazilian great Milton Nascimento, Djavan is a distinctive vocalist whose inspirations range from Northeastern Brazil's tropicalismo school to jazz to the Beatles and Stevie Wonder. Having absorbed so wide a variety of music, Djavan (a native of the state of Alagoas in Northeastern Brazil) has no problem making Seduzir a very diverse listen. Though all of the players on this five-star date are Brazilian and Djavan's lyrics are entirely in Portuguese, it's hard to miss the impact American artists have had on him. From the impressionistic "Morena de Endoidecer" and the complex, jazz-oriented "Jogral" to the enchanting "Faltando Um Pecado" and the Wonder-ish title song, Djavan keeps listeners guessing. © Alex Henderson /TiVo

A predictable release by the Brazilian important composer Djavan, Bicho Solto, his 13th album, has no surprises. Fully danceable in funky watered-down versions (with the exception of the beautiful, fluent melody of "Retrato da vida" and the angular "Tão raro"), surrounded by the indulgence of a faithful audience earned over the years by his swinging compositional style and by his lyrics with no other meaning than the rhythmic/musical, supported by the musical industry that smiles at his insipid funk "Você E" and his retro-swing "Atitude," anticipating expressive sales records, Djavan doesn't make any attempt to push the envelope. © Alvaro Neder /TiVo
