International singing superstar and songwriter Milton Nascimento may have his roots in Brazil, but his songs have touched audiences all over the world. Born in Rio, Nascimento’s adoptive parents, both white, brought him to Tres Pontas, a small town in the state of Minas Gerais, when he was two. His mother sang in a choir and at local music festivals, often accompanied by Milton. Nascimento’s father was an electronics tinkerer, math teacher, and at one point ran a local radio station where a young Milton occasionally worked as a DJ. He began singing as a teenager. When he was 19, Nascimento moved to the capital Belo Horizonte and began singing wherever and whenever he could. Finally he caught a break when the pop singer Elis Regina recorded one of his songs, “Canção do Sal,” in 1966. Regina got him a showcase on a popular Brazilian TV program, and after performing at Brazil’s International Song Festival the following year, his career was launched. In 1972 he collaborated with fellow lyricists Márcio Borges, Fernando Brant, Ronaldo Bastos, and other friends to record Clube da Esquina, a double album that spurred three hit singles, including “Cais (Dock)” and “Cravo é Canela (Clove and Cinnamon).” The singles are still being recorded and have become standards in Brazil over the years. Since he began recording with his self-titled debut in 1967 for the Codil label, Nascimento has written and recorded 28 albums. Nascimento’s many achievements include Grammy nominations for his O Planeta Blue na Estrada do Sol in 1992, and in 1995 for his Warner Bros. debut, Angelus. Nascimento is also winner of the 1992 Down Beat International Critics’ Poll and the 1991 Down Beat Readers’ Poll. Nascimento has toured throughout the U.S., Europe, Japan, and Latin America. His lengthy discography includes Courage, a 1969 album for A&M and Milton Nascimento that same year for EMI Odeon; Milton, also for the EMI Odeon label, recorded in 1970, and then four more albums for the label EMI Odeon: Clube da Esquina (1972), Milagre dos Peixes (1973), Milagre dos Peixes (Ao Vivo) (1973), and Minas (1975). His other titles include Native Dancer (CBS, 1976), Geraes (EMI Odeon, 1976), Milton (A&M, 1977), Clube da Esquina 2 (EMI Odeon, 1978), A Brazilian Love Affair, a collaboration with George Duke (CBS Records, 1980), Journey to Dawn (A&M Records, 1979), and a series of five albums for Ariola: Sentinela (1980), Cacador de Mim (1981), Missa dos Quilombos (1982), Anima (1982), and Milton Nascimento ao Vivo (1983). His output through the rest of the 1980s and ‘90s has been steady and reliable, though never musically predictable. Like any true jazz and pop veteran, Nascimento has a deep need to keep challenging himself, vocally, lyrically, and stylistically. Nascimento’s other releases include Encontros e Despedidas for Barclay in 1985, Corazon Americano for PolyGram in 1986, A Barca dos Amantes for Barclay in 1986, Milton/RPM for Epic/CBS in 1987, Yauaretê for CBS in 1987, Miltons in 1988 for CBS, Txai for the same label in 1990, and O Planeta Blue na Estrada do Sol for CBS in 1991. In the mid-'90s, Nascimento switched to Warner Bros. He released two excellent, readily available albums for the label, Angelus, his 27th recording, in 1995, Amigo in 1996, Nascimento in 1997, and Crooner in 1999. He returned after a short hiatus in 2003 with Pieta, followed by The Essential Collection: The Best of the EMI Odeon Years (1969-78) in 2006. This charismatic Brazilian superstar just won’t slow down any time soon, and whether he’s packing a stadium in Brazil or singing at a club in New York, his experienced stage persona allows everyone in the audience to feel as if they’re in his living room. On Angelus, he’s joined by saxophonist Wayne Shorter, who pays tribute to Nascimento’s 1975 Native Dancer LP, the high point of which was the synthesis between Nascimento’s voice and Shorter’s saxophone. That album helped to solidify Nascimento’s place on the international jazz and pop scene in the 1970s. Whatever he writes and sings about, be it the planet, ways of living, and loving and dying, his music has always carried an eternally optimistic spirit. As he entered the millennium, Nascimento won a Grammy for Best Contemporary Pop Album for 1999’s Crooner at the first annual Latin Grammy Awards in fall 2000. ~ Richard Skelly…… 


Journey to Brazil and beyond with the music of gifted singer-songwriter Milton Nascimento. On Milton, the acoustic-based 1976 follow-up to Native Dancer, his collaboration with Wayne Shorter, the two are paired again, along with Herbie Hancock on piano. Beginning with the Afro-Brazilian rhythms of "Raça" and ending on the dark jazz landscape of "Os Povos," we go on a vocal journey of words and wordless singing that showcases the incredible range of Nascimento's voice. For some, Nascimento's vocal style is an acquired taste, but not many can deny the beauty of his falsetto, the richness of his bass register, and all the colorings in between. It is this voice that transcends any language barrier and resists categorization. On the haunting "Chamada," where his vocalese is accompanied by a single guitar, Nascimento's music calls on a mysterious yet moving place in our musical understanding. --Jamie FitzGerald 


I cant believe this music was out of print for so long, it is a masterpiece -- a real jewel in the immense discography of one of Brasil's most beloved composers. This cd was originally release in 1976 and was A&M records 2nd attempt at finding Milton a US audience("COURAGE" was the first!) This set features a combination of old favorites re-recorded ,mostly from Milton's Clube da Esquina days ("Saidas e Bandeiras"."Nada Sera...", and a FIERY ALL OUT version of "Cravo e Canela", especially) "Francisco" is one of the most hauntingly beautiful melodies you will EVER hear, trust me on that! haha I always complain, too many English lyrics,(Nada Sera is sung "em Ingles" here), but that's my problem! Milton's English has a lovely lilt to it, so WHY COMPLAIN! NOTE: musicians on this cd are the TOPS from cream of US( Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter), & Brasil( Toninho Horta, Robertinho Silva, Airto, Novelli , Raul) & the fabulous Hugo Fattoruso from Argentina! ENJOY...by... Peppino....~ 


Great album! This album demonstrates the amazingess of the Milton Nascimento's music and collaboration which Jazz musicians such as Wayne Shorter and Herbie Hancock! Songs such as Saidas e Bandeiras, Cravo e Canela, and Francisco demonstrate the mingling of the two genres: Milton's Musica Popular Brasileira and Wayne Shorter and Herbie Hancock's Jazz. This Brazilian-Jazz fusion is great for any fusion fans and fans of work by the great artists who are featured on the album...by.... shamus hill...~ 


Originally recorded and released in 1976, MILTON was the first US album by Brazilian singer-songwriter Milton Nascimento, already a superstar in his native land - it gave American listeners a taste of his amazing talents. Milton had appeared shortly before this release on an album by jazz saxophonist Wayne Shorter, NATIVE DANCER. That album was a great recording in its own right, but this one is Milton's show all the way - and what an amazing display it is. 
Milton is joined here by Shorter, as well as other jazz luminaries of the day, most notably pianist Herbie Hancock. Also present are Raul de Souza (trombone), Hugo Fattoruso (organ), Toninho Horta (12-string and electric guitar), Novelli (bass), the amazing Airto Moreira (percussion), Roberto Silva (drums, percussion), Laudir de Oliveira (percussion) and Maria Fatima (vocals). The accompanying musicians appear in small groups on various tracks - the arrangements are beautifully written, never overcrowded, and frame Milton's compositions and voice perfectly. 
The songs are sung both in Portuguese and in English - and the words appear in the cd booklet it both languages (although the Portuguese lyrics are a bit hard to decipher, being presented in a reproduction of the original lp inner sleeve, printed in white against a black and white photograph. The rhythms and tempos vary greatly, bending themselves to the personalities of the compositions. The first two tracks, `Raça (Race)' and `Fairy tale song (Cadê)' are fairly up-tempo. These are followed by the achingly beautiful `Francisco', with wordless vocals rendered by Milton in his beautiful, seemingly effortless falsetto. 
Two more upbeat tracks follow - `Nothing will be as it was' (a great tune, also covered by Chick Corea and Return to Forever, as well as by Flora Purim on a solo album); and a Milton classic, `Cravo e canela (Clove and cinnamon)'. Next is `The call', Milton's representation of the chant of the naiad - the mermaid of the forests - and another wonderful example of his vocal abilities. `One coin (Tostão)' and `Saídas e bandeiras (Exits and flags)', two exceptional medium-tempo tunes follow, with the extended `Os povos (The people)' closing the set and providing a great example of Milton's social and political consciousness (Brazil at the time was ruled by a military dictatorship). 
Milton recorded several albums in Brazil previous to this release - and there are some wonderful recordings to be experienced in that group. One earlier recording is actually entitled MINAS - not to be confused with this album, it should be explored by the listener as well. The music here, on MILTON, is a genuine treasure - and it allowed American listeners to experience for the first time the amazing talent of Milton Nascimento. He has given us so much great music in the ensuing years - his catalogue is enormous - and he has come to be recognized as an artist of consistent (and lasting) quality and scope. There's a lot to explore in his music - this is a great place to start - it's as fresh and enjoyable today as it was 27 years ago, when it was first issued, and that's the mark of something special indeed....By Larry L. Looney...~ 


Legendary work from Milton Nascimento – one of his first LPs, and still one of his greatest! The record is amazing – a sublime blend of soulful vocals, baroque orchestrations, and just the right amount of jazzy touches – handled in a way that forever proclaimed Milton as one of Brazil's greatest artists, and which went onto shape the force of Brazilian pop for years to come. Every single track is a gem – and the album includes the classic "Para Lennon e McCartney", a solid solid groover – plus loads of other great ones like "Clube da Esquina", "Amigo, Amiga", "Durango Kid", and his excellent recording of "A Felicidade". Production is excellent, and the sound is extremely haunting!
