Om die dik swingende versie van Wave niet te vergeten…Weergaloos! Het meesterlijke Elis Regina In London was het album dat haar terecht wereldberoemd en bemind maakte. En na al die jaren spat het plezier en de klasse nog steeds met volle kracht de speakers uit. She hosted a popular television show "O Fino Do Fino" and used her fame to boost the careers of many of the best new Brazilian composers of the era.
Elis sings wonderfully here, singing in her finest form and the material is flawless. There's much less of the Vegas-y cabaret vibe she projects on other albums, and she sounds more joyful and upbeat as well. Great album to get if you want to form a favorable impression of her work, although in some ways it's unlike many of her other releases, which tend to be a bit heavier and melodramatic.
Good stuff, though - highly recommended! I firmly believe that this album has been recorded for marketing reasons in order to launch Ms. Regina's international career. Arrangements are by English maestro, Mr. Peter Knight, and they definitely did not work well with the Brazilian rhythm section. Unfortunately, Mr. Knight did not dig what swinging samba and Brazilian music is all about. Even Johnny Mandel's gem "A Time for Love" and Michel Legrand's 'Watch What Happens' had not a brilliant arrangement which could be made into a great opportunity for the marketing proposal.
For Brazilian fans this album also means nothing even because it has never been issued in Brazil. See all 2 customer reviews. Write a customer review. Checkout as Guest.
