O’s Notes: Antonio plays guitar leading a cool quintet with Fábio Leandro (p), Josué dos Santos (sax, fl) and Roberto Caravelho (b). The music is all new bossa novas by Valdetaro, a fine jazz musician. He pairs his guitar with the piano and sax to form sweet lead lines on many of them. It is easy to engage in particularly “Bossa Louce”, “Tadião” and the title track. We enjoyed this one from end to end especially the warm numbers like “Deixa Estar”. Valdetaro done a fine job sharing the spotlight and keeping the audience engaged.
