- "Jabuti is the nickname given to the Brazilian singer-songwriter
Gilberto Miranda Fonteles, who has been working in music since the late '70s.
His new album Outro Ar (Traumton 4422; 46:03) - "different air" -
in Portuguese - is a lyrical yet smart set of songs tracing some sort of Brazilian-Berlin
connection. Embarking on travels outside of his native Brazil in 1995 , he
landed in Berlin, where he linked up with cellist Wolfgang Loos, part owner
of the German-based Traumton label. Accompanying himself with clean- machined,
finger-picked acoustic guitar parts, along with
subtle additions of Eddie Hayes’ fluegelhorn, Denney Goodhew’s
clarinet and Saxophone and Dietrich Kollöffel’s
percussion, Jabuti has made an album of pretty, understated original songs,
with traces of Milton Nascimento and Jobim’s lyricism."
