Like Gilberto Gil, Gal Costa and Caetano Veloso before him, Arthur Verocai and his auspicious 1972 debut transcend borders, time and genre. An album full of ‘moments’ – “Na Boca Do Sol” and “Caboclo” immediately come to mind – it’s “Sylvia” I have lined up for an upcoming project. In terms of sonic balance the track is masterful. Cascading, “Sylvia” deftly incorporates folk, jazz and ornate orchestration into its three minute frame. And in doing so it takes the listener along with it.
