Simone: Fica Comigo Esta Noite

Getting Back on Track

 


Fica Comigo Esta Noite

This album was long overdue. Simone’s last studio album with Brazilian music was back in 1996, Café com Leite. So, here is the chance for Simone to redeem herself from her unstable Columbia era. If you want to drop your chin in amazement, just listen to “Desenho de Giz,” a duet with João Bosco. His vocals are controlled and might even remind you of his earlier hits “Latin Lover” and “Miss Suéter.” With a good balance of boleros and pop, Fica Comigo Esta Noite is strong. Zeca Baleiro’s ” Boi de Haxixe” receives a frevo-like rendition with lots of brass. Arrangements were done by Julinho Teixeira and Cesar Camargo Mariano. Guest musicians include, besides João Bosco, Carlos Malta and Luiz Conte.
