3 stars Very surprising record for me discovering interesting music from Brazil. And so yet I discovered from this line-up many well known Brazilian musicians as Nana Vasconcelos on percussion (was for example in Pat Metheny Group recording many albums with them), Robertinho Silvaon drums and Milton Nascimento as a guest on vocalese. The music is instrumental mixture (with vocalese on some tracks) of psychedelic and symphonic music, smooth jazz, bossa with some shorter tunes for orchestra. In my oppinion this record has "mountainous" highpoint - the title composition "A Matanca Do Porco" - with aspirative guitar-dominated symphonic-psychedelic rising theme and with melancholic-poetical coda on the last minutes. At least this composition demands to do such kind of discovery as Som Imaginario's album Matanca Do Porco. Also we can listen some very short orchestra themes here. But the rest on this record is maybe more usual, often guitar and organ based smooth-jazz-like stuff (sounds quite nice but hasn't very essential ideas...). Thanks to this monumental composition "Matanca Do Porco" 3,5 stars!
