Vanoni is at her best singing moody jazz music with a Latin optimism. Life can be unfair and hearts can be broken but tomorrow is another day for Vanoni and her friends. They sing in Italian, Portuguese and there is even a Napolitan ballard. But the music is always great.

Great Brazilian Music performed in Italian 28 Mar. 2001
By David Land - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This was the first album in Italian I ever bought and I bought it because I'm a huge fan of Vinicius and Toquinho. I was not disappointed, and was particularly pleased with Ornella Vanoni's vocals. I'm actually interested in acquiring more of her material, but unfortunately what I've got so far beyond this album is great singing accompanied by cheezy production (kind of like what you get with a Fafa de Belem or Elba Ramalho album). Vanoni sounds alot like Elis Regina, if you're familiar with her work (widely considered to be the greatest Brazilian singer). Even though the songs are all sung in Italian, I agree with the previous reviewer that "La Voglia La Pazzia" is very much a Brazilian undertaking, with the sort of subdued samba beats you find throughout Vinicius & Toquinho's work. I should add that as far as I can tell, none of the songs were new compositions, rather familiar material mostly written by Vinicius and Toquinho. There are alot of good songs on this album, but to me "Samba della Rosa" (Samba da Rosa) stands out, with "Semiforro Rosso" (Sinal Fechado), "Senza Paura" (Sem Medo), "Un Altro Addrio" (Mais um Adeus), and "Samba per Vinicius" also being personal favorites.

Brazilian music for Italian Speakers 13 July 2000
By Claudia Castro - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This record is a favourite of those who are fans of the partnership between the Brazilian poet and lyricist, Vinicius de Moraes, and the musician Toquinho, with his Brazilian agoustic guitar. The songs have been literally translated from the Portuguese into Italian. Ornela Vanoni's intrpretation is that of a true Brazilian singer. The placement of her voice produces a velvet texture, usually a natural characteristic of Brazilians.
"La Voglia, La Pazzia" is a display of Brazilian culture in words and music and its resemblance to its Italian counterpart. There is a bit of everything: happiness, samba, melancholy and light-heartedness. A special note should be made to track number 9, where Vinicius, the poet, the lyricist is reciting his poem in "Eu sei que vou te amar". Also, worthy of mention is a homage to Vinicius, the famous Italian song "Anima e cuore", a surprise that Ornela Vanoni and Toquinho sweetly call the "Samba di Napoli".

A perfect marriage of Italy and Brasil 23 April 2013
By smitty - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
What a CD. The famous Brasilian poet, Vinicius de Moraes, and the dusky voice of Ornella Vanoni in a perfect combination and sung in Italian. I cant even begin to list my favorites on this CD because every one of them is A+. If I had to single any of them out , it would be Samba em Preludio, in a beautiful Italian translation of the original Portuguese words. 'Io senza te...Io sono una fiamma e luce non do...Io sono una barca e mare non ho...Ho paura di vivere senza te.'Vinicius starts the song, Ornella does the next part and then the two of them in a truly moving duet.If you have never heard of this CD and are an Ornella fan, then I dont know where you have been. And if you love sambas and Brasilian music in general , then you must have this album. Believe me, this is an all time classic!

Another, more recent cd of Brazilian music by Ornella is "Argilla" which also rates 5 stars IMO.
