This beautiful -- and now legendary -- recording date between iconic Brazilian vocalist Elis Regina and Laila Dalseth - Just Friends, conductor, and arranger Tom Jobim is widely regarded as one of the greatest Brazilian pop recordings. It is nearly ubiquitous among Brazilians as a household item.
Regina 's voice is among the most loved Modinha - Elis* & Tom* - Elis & Tom the history of Brazilian music. Her range and acuity, her unique phrasing, and her rainbow of emotional colors are literally unmatched, and no matter the tune or arrangement, she employs most of them on these 14 cuts.
Another compelling aspect of this recording is the young band Jobim employs here and allows pretty free rein throughout. That said, most of these songs were completed as first takes with very little overdubbing. The ballads are stunning -- check"Modinha," written and arranged by Jobim.
The chart, even with an orchestral backing, is amazingly terse because the composer knew Regina worked best within minimal settings. Only two minutes and 16 seconds in length, it nonetheless captures Modinha - Elis* & Tom* - Elis & Tom Portuguese notion of "saudade" perfectly. Of course, most of these tunes are bossa novas. Even with electric guitars complete with a semi-funky solo in the middle eight on top of the nylon strings, the gauzy yet pronounced rhythms and the languid melody delivered by Regina are gorgeous.
It is mournful and sensual. Modinha - Elis* & Tom* - Elis & Tom plays guitar and piano here, and adds a hushed backing vocal to Dos Alpargatas - Marea - 28.000 Puñaladas 's refrains. It's an unusual reading, but a stellar one. It's all guitars, bass, and Regina in the first verse before the Rhodes piano and counterpoint enter near the end.
