Recensione

"Well informed, written in plain language and smartly illustrated, The Brazilian Sound quickly became a reference book after it was published in 1991. With the recent publication of a revised and expanded edition, the good just got better...The Brazilian Sound is an informative primer, clearly designed to be useful to the curious beginner, but also substantive enough to capture and hold the attention of the initiated. This new edition retains the easy-to-read quality of the original while adding not only new artists throughout but also historical and social context to the music.... For anyone interested in exploring the vast world of Brazilian music, The Brazilian Sound will serve nicely as a smart and practical road map." --Jazziz, February 2009

"An excellent resource on some of the most popular music in Brazil.... Clearly written and offering information valuable for understanding Brazilian music in general.... Anyone interested in the evolution of Brazilian popular music and some of its most prolific artists of the past centuries will appreciate this title. Summing Up: Highly recommended." --Choice, June 2009

Praise for the last edition: "[The Brazilian Sound] continues to be the most informative-and eminently readable-book about Brazilian popular music." --The Los Angeles Times

Sinossi

An illustrated guide to the rich music of Brazil—its history, styles, performers, instruments, and impact on musicians around the globe. From the boisterous rhythms of samba to the cool elegance of bossa nova to the hot percussion of Bahian axé music, The Brazilian Sound celebrates a world music phenomenon. This revised and expanded edition includes discussions of developments in samba and other key genres, the rise of female singer-songwriters in recent years, new works by established artists, the mixing of bossa nova with electronica, and the popularity of Brazilian funk, hip hop, tecnobrega, and sertaneja (country) music. This clearly written and lavishly illustrated encyclopedic survey features new entries and photographs, an extensive glossary of Brazilian music terms and more.

5.0 su 5 stelle THE Book About Brazilian Popular Music 22 febbraio 2013
Di Violonista Canhoto - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
"The Brazilian Sound" is THE book on Brazilian popular music, valuable to both neophytes and aficionados of the magnificent music of Brazil. Arguably the world's most musical nation, where music is the very fabric of life, Brazil influences musical styles worldwide. This book is thorough yet concise, with tons of photos, a priceless primer as you explore the genres and legendary musicians in the land of samba, bossa, chorinho, frevo, axe, and on and on. I have both the earlier softcover edition (heavily underlined and annotated) and the newer Kindle edition. I use them as references for a Brazilian music program that I cohost on a Pittsburgh station. We refer to this little book as "the Bible."

4.0 su 5 stelle Good summary of Brazilian Music 27 gennaio 2013
Di Iohannes Magnus - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
This is a very good book to have but it reads more like a dictionary so I use it only for reference. Also it should have an appendix with the lyrics of songs discussed in English. Students find the book a problem because of the two points above..

5.0 su 5 stelle Readable, enjoyable summary of Brazilian music 10 novembre 1999
Di Mom - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina rigida Acquisto verificato
An excellent book for anyone who wants to explore Brazilian music beyond the well-known classics. Helps place current and past musicians in their historical contexts; helps you understand who influenced whom, etc. The book will pay for itself just by helping you guide your ever-growing collection of Brazilian CD's (hard to stop once you get started)!

3.0 su 5 stelle The Brazilian Sound 26 dicembre 2002
Di Hearth Sutra - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
The Brazilian Sound is good as far as it goes - a who's who list and discography of 20th century Brazilian music. Although, the book has the feel of a junior college textbook, it's written in plain language. It would be a relatively easy read if it were not that a parenthetical list of Brazilian names breaks up every third or fourth paragraph. There are some very informative passages - notably the chapter on Bossa Nova and the "Escolas de Samba" section of Chapter 2. At their best, the authors provide clear and comphrensive explanations of the geneology and sociological context of the music.
Unfortunately, unless a person is willing to spend countless shopping hours and a couple of thousand dollars building up collection of Brazilian records, he or she will gain almost no insight from this book into what the music feels like. The authors describe individual works and artists in only vague terms - terms often identical to those previously used to describe others. They beat the term "syncopation" into irrelevance - it's clear only that all Brazilian music is syncopated. The authors habitually refer to folk music genres and song forms ala "Composer X's work is all based on the Y song form..." But they provide no practical examples or definitions of those genres or forms.
The authors stridently dumb-down their text, accepting as axiom that one has to "hear it to believe it" and that it is meaningless to describe Brazilian music in technical terms. They generally refrain from even using common musical terms - bar, measure, pulse, key, etc. - to give the reader a clearer understanding of Brazilian rhythmic and harmonic structures. They use few effective musical comparisons or verbal metaphors. It is understandably difficult to describe music in writing. But it is possible. Judicious use of metaphor, comparisions, and technical descriptions would have greatly fleshed out what in the end comes off as a skeletal text.
This 1998 edition serves as the update to the first, apparently published in 1990 or 1991. However, the amendments appear to have been quite minor - embodied by an isolated paragraph here and there, and four meager pages in the final "More Brazilian Sounds" chapter. It's as if nothing has really happened in the evolution of Brazilian music since 1990 - an impression that must be wrong.
The Brazilian Sound catalogs decent research, but is neither good writing nor effective music history.
