In 1974 Secos e Molhados band was at its height, his first album had sold over a million copies and became a landmark in Brazilian music. After a tour in Mexico, the singer Ney Matogrosso learned that the band had signed some documents and without realizing it signed a document authorizing the return of the band’s manager. From there Ney was disappointed with the new direction of the group and decided that he would leave the band shortly after the recording of the second album. 
To the surprise of Ney, he discovered that he had no contract with the record company and was free to do whatever he wanted. then signed a contract with the Continental label and eventually met at a concert the Argentine maestro Astor Piazzolla. Piazzola Ney invited to go to Italy to record two songs with him. The songs “Islands” and “1964” were shown for the Continental label, which liked the result. 
In 1975, Matogrosso assembled a band with several experienced players, to start making the arrangements that would be his first solo album. Rehearsals for the disc became huge jam sessions and every time the songs were played arose a new ground and a new arrangement. Ney had to arrange things so that finally the songs have a definite face. 
Produced by Billy Bond,Água do Céu Pássaro came out in 1975 and Ney Matogrosso the disc was a letter of intent was there all he thought about the musical universe, its influences and the form of expression he wanted to use in his art. Ney did not want any kind of silence on the disc, so we used various sounds of nature such as water, wind, and animals in between the tracks. The album cover shows an artist “animalistic”, half man, half beast, strengthening the artistic context of the album. 
“Neanderthal Man” de Sá and Guarabyra opens the disc with sounds of nature and the primal scream of Ney Matogrosso. “Privateer,” John Bosco music has zither sounds mixed with Brazilian percussion with a poetic letter. “Açucar candy” is the drive rocker, and has a letter with erotic references as “Pedra de rio” is one of the most beautiful moments of the album, with the always fantastic interpretation of Matogrosso. 
“Bodas” by Milton Nascimento and Ruy Guerra is an epic 7 minutes with a tense and explosive chorus, with a letter that talks about the Portuguese colonization in Brazil. “Coubanakan” has a Latin involving rhythm, while “América do sul” has become a classic in Ney’s career and was the first music video made in Brazil. In version on CD still they came out as a bonus the two songs recorded with Piazzolla and released on compact at the time, “Ilhas” and “1964”.
Água do Céu Pássaro was the starting point of a very successful solo career Ney Matogrosso. The disc was an evolution to the sound of general goods, showing a wealth of arrangements and quality in the lyrics that became a trademark in the singer’s work. The album was not a commercial success, but artistically had much impact and is one of the most impressive records made in Brazilian music. After this album Ney launched the Bandido drive and had great commercial success and from then on his career only generated great moments……~. 


Água do Céu-Pássaro, first enigmatic disk Ney Matogrosso after early dissolution of the original ,Secos & Molhados features nine songs full of intensity, carefully polished by a razor sharp band and flawless production. Ney, extremely perfectionist, even require the recording studio of change in which was recording (initially in Rio de Janeiro, and then transferred to Sao Paulo in the legendary studio Vice Versa, in Pinheiros) for not being happy with the available equipment , raising the cost of the work. 
The album has compositions of big names like Milton Nascimento and João Bosco (narrowly Caetano do not sign production) and also songs written during meetings at the home of friends. Paulinho Mendonça, Luli, Jorge Omar and Paulo Cesar are some of the names that appear in the credits - the latter sign “Pedra do Rio”:. “He was banking, turned hippie and moved in with me in Rio was the only letter that did in life . "laughs Ney. 
The final production of the disc also has several sounds of nature interspersed between tracks, and several vocal trials of Ney: "I did not want any silence in between songs, wanted to sound Brazilian forest.” The disc opens with the great “Homem de Neanderthal”, which has an introduction sounds of monkeys and macaws and ends with “South America”, also the sound of tropical birds.
Curiously, the first edition of the album still had a curious powder with forest aroma, inserted into the paper-cellophane surrounding the disk. Precious……~ 


‎”Água Do Céu Pássaro”  the first album by the enigmatic Ney Matogrosso after the original dissolution of Dry and Wet, presents 11 songs full of intensity, carefully carved by a very accurate band and impeccable production.
