O’s Notes: Cristina Braga sings and plays harp in front of the Modern Samba Quartet with Jessé Sadoc (t), Ricardo Medeiros (b), Joca Moraes (d) and Arthur Dutra (vibes). This is an unusual combination and their approach is different as well. Braga’s soft and airy vocals are complemented by the instruments in a relaxing bossa nova. Medeiros’ arrangements tame the classics recoloring the canvas with pastels. “S› Dano Samba” is among the best.
