Album Review

Brazilian MPB star Maria Rita changed direction for her third album, Samba Meu, which, as its title ("My Samba") makes clear, is a samba collection. As on her previous albums, the warmly received Maria Rita (2003) and Segundo (2005), the musical arrangements are acoustic and jazzy, with first-rate production quality. Also like her previous albums, Samba Meu is comprised of excellent songs all around — just cue up the album and press play, it's that easy; no need to skip even a single track. The highlights are sequenced early: the opening stretch — from the album-opening title track to the sixth track, "Tá Perdoado" — is fantastic and lively. The album begins to slow down in pace with "Pra Declarar Minha Saudade" (the seventh track), and this second half of the album is enjoyable in its own way, a nice come-down from the exhilarating opening stretch. Samba Meu is another great album by Rita, even if, like Segundo, it falls short of Maria Rita, which had been close to perfect.

Her best work so far

I host a weekly Brazilian jazz show. I featured this album on Saturday and my phone lines lit up with tons of listeners wanting to know more about Maria Rita. "Samba Meu", the first song on the album, is beautiful. It is slow and soulful and very rich. It's amazing that it is just her voice, a guitar and a cuica. The other song that I really enjoyed is "Ta Perdoado" in which she shifts over from a classic samba beat to a mambo/salsa rythm. FABULOUS! Lastly, check out "Casa de Noca". The piano in the background makes the song. It's almost as if Ivan Lins were playing it. In short...I love this album.

My goodness!!! I love it!!

Genre: MPB

Years Active: '00s

Maria Rita took the MPB world by storm in 2003 with her debut album, winning all kinds of awards and crossing over abroad in light of her mammoth success. The beautiful and beautiful-sounding young lady is the daughter of one of Brazil's most (if not the most) legendary vocalists, the late Elis Regina, and if that alone weren't enough to make her a star in waiting, her father is César Camargo Mariano, one of the country's top arrangers, producers, and pianists, and her namesake is Rita Lee, yet another...
