Album Review

On Qualquer, Arnaldo Antunes drifts even further away from the rock and pop sound that made him famous as the frontman of Titãs during the 1980s. Qualquer has a calm, simple, and down-to-earth sound that soothingly floats along in the boundaries between bossa nova and singer/songwriter-styled folk music. No percussion is used on the album, as Antunes is backed by the musical quintet of Cezar Mendes and Chico Salem (both on acoustic guitar), Edgard Scandurra (electric guitar), Dadi Carvalho (bass), and Daniel Jobim (piano). The opening track, "Para Lá," written by Antunes together with Adriana Calcanhotto, sets the tone of the album and is also one of its highlights. There are also collaborations with Carlinhos Brown (on "Lua Vermelha" and "Sem Você") and Marisa Monte (on "O Que Você Quer Saber de Verdade" and "Contato Imediato").
