Andre Carvalho – Tempo do Tanto

Chocolat 11/16/2014
8.1

Impeccable recordings mixed with A-class musicianship, Brazilian singer/guitar player Andre Carvalho has really opened my eyes to the amount of great music coming out of Brazil at the moment. From start to finish “Tanto do Tempo” takes you on a journey through his emotions while staying true to the beauty and complexity of his instrumentation and arranging talents. I hate to sound cliche’ but his guitar tone/style reminds me a lot of late Joao Gilberto, especially on tracks “Daquele Jeito”, “Alvo Certo”, “Nao tem fim”, and “Bom”.  I have really been wanting to explore the Rio music scene and I think I found a great place to start! Much respect to Andre Carvalho and his supporting musicans: Dadi( Guitar), Daniel Carvalho( Bass), Nando Duarte (guitar) and Carlos Sales (drums). Fulljoy this Thursday, and give thanks for all of the cultures we have in the world, bless up!
