VINE VOICEon 14 April 2014
I was dreaming of the past, longing for something lost - a little melancony - saudade...
And then I listened to this - reminiscent of Joao Gilberto, Antonio Carlos Jobim in their classic years - cool, relaxed, genuine bossa.
Some of the vocals evocative, delivered with the innocence and allure of Astrud Gilberto.
But this ain't no steal - theft from those halcyon years, it is a comtemporary take of the genre.
In 'Saudade' - Thievery Corporation have captured the very essence and nuance of authentic bossa nova.
They have made yesterday's music real for today.

I came across this album 'Saudade' by the Thievery Corporation quite by chance and I absolutely love it. I’d never heard of the Thievery Corporation but have gone onto buy several more of their albums, but 'Saudade' is my favourite. This embraces bossa nova and Brazilian rhythms, with horns, strings, electro beats, and nylon-string guitars, creating a collection of elegant, breezy, wistful tunes, with some sultry, classy, alluring vocals, sung in Portuguese, French, and English. It’s a very atmospheric album, delicate yet at the same time totally scintillating. Wonderful.

The corporation never fail to disappoint. Having grown up on Getz and Gilberto this album satisfies the soul, relaxes, hits the emotional centres and sends you to the safe,chilled, golden beaches of Rio. So......Good......
