Über Milton Nascimento
Milton Nascimento, the Brazilian superstar, has created exciting, diverse music for more than thirty years. He combines pop, jazz, Brazilian folk and Bossa Nova into one unique package and his voice is really an incredible instrument -- he is one of the few singers to regularly go from a heavy baritone to a beautiful but bizarre falsetto. But it is Nascimento's superb songcraft which has the world's finest musicians lining up to record with him. It is normal to find Peter Gabriel or Herbie Hancock on one of Nascimento's recordings, and jazz artists and vocalists often cover his tunes.
