2002 Release. Guitarist Maurico Tagliari, vibraphonist Guga Stroeter, and clarinetist and pianist Luca Raele inhabit a rarified sector of the São Paulo music scene where Brazilian genres, American jazz, European schools and emerging trans-global styles intersect. For Free Bossa (Nouvelle's fourth album) they invited Estela Cassilatti to sing with them, Marinho Andreotti to play the double bass, and half-a-dozen percussionists to sit in (but not all at once). They recorded a few choice chestnuts (Rodgers & Hart, Gershwin & Gershwin, Reinhardt & Grappelli, Redding & Cropper), several Brazilian songs and dances, an homage to Ornette Coleman, some very fine original compositions, and a poem, all in their own fresh style. "Altogether divine." - (AllMusic).
