A tribute to his adoptive mother, PIETA finds Brazilian singer/songwriter Milton Nascimento keeping her favorite artists (including Sarah Vaughan, Billie Holiday, and Yma Sumac) in mind. Rather than covering songs made famous by these performers, Nascimento evokes their musical spirits with his expressive voice and a set of mostly original tunes, resulting in a relaxed and beautiful album. Renowned conductor/arranger Eumir Deodato contributes his trademark swooning strings to a number of selections here, including the gentle "Tristesse" and the title track, in which subtle electronics blend with a light acoustic-guitar line and stomping percussion.
Although most of PIETA features a host of Brazilian musicians, two American jazz luminaries-- pianist Herbie Hancock and guitarist Pat Metheny--join Nascimento for a fascinatingly spare take on Hancock's funky "Cantaloupe Island." Though the track might initially seem out of step with the rest of the disc, it proves to be one of the many highlights of this remarkable record, which ranks among Nascimento's best work.
