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

This live album in two volumes by Djavan has, in the first volume, some of his biggest hits, like the danceable "Samurai," the funky "Nem Um Dia," the romantic ballad "Oceano," the song "Açaí," "Sina" (here in a rock rendition), and others. The best songs and renditions are the pure, strong, hot, and swinging samba "Serrado," with the firm grip of his brass section; the samba "Flor De Lis," in a simple violão backing; "Amar é Tudo," a beautiful melody with economic accompaniment; the funk-reggae "Azul"; and "Seduzir," with its jazzy solos. In general, this is a typical Djavan release: An extremely competent Brazilian composer, he adhered to the pop idiom, and his albums for some time have been dealing with a mix of Brazilian and pop grooves. © Alvaro Neder /TiVo
