Let's close the Brazilian Divas pool acclaiming the winner, Elis Regina. This LP was recorded in 1979, Montreux Jazz Festival with Hermeto Pascoal. The album was kept unreleased until 1982 and it is a unique Elis Performance that zecalouro is making available to Loronixers.
zecalouro can’t make it better than the review wrote by Stefan Sittig at Amazon, as follows:
This LP captures Elis's brilliant performance at the 1979 Montreux Jazz Festival. The reason the album had not previously been released is because ticket sales had been so huge for Elis's show in Montreux, that the producers decided to add a matinee the same day of the evening show. Elis performed at the matinee, knocked them dead, but then lost steam for the evening show. She was tired, feeling wiped out from giving her all in the afternoon. Although Elis did get through the entire concert and at the end of that evening's performance, she was invited back on stage by Hermeto Pascoal to do some jamming sessions. Feeling perhaps revitalized, or more relaxed since the concert itself was over, Elis gave it her all and gave brilliant/improvisational renditions of classics of Bossa Nova, like "Corcovado", "Girl From Ipanema" and others. And Elis left the festival feeling at least vindicated for having sung well at the improv session with Pascoal.
But she was unhappy with the evening show, it wasn't good enough for Elis and she had her record producer promise never to release that concert live.
But 2 years later, after Elis had died, the record producer realized that they had also taped the afternoon show which had been wonderful! He then felt he must somewhat betray Elis's trust and find the master tapes for that stunning afternoon performance.
Well, he did and that, together with the improv/jam session with Pascoal, are what have been included in this latest CD release. And let me tell you, what a JOYOUS sound Elis produces, all the tracks are excellent, really, there are no stand-outs, all are uniformly brilliant.
Perhaps her jam session with Pascoal will be the most interesting section for her faithful, longtime fans, because she interprets classics in a totally new way. I can't think of another singer, except for perhaps Ella Fitzgerald, who could improv/scat/jam as well as Elis does in the session with Pascoal.
Pure brilliance, and a must-have for fans.
