The children of Brazil's greatest musicians are taking to the world stage. Last year saw the release of Tanto Tempo by Bebel Gilberto, daughter of bossa nova great Joao Gilberto; Max de Castro, son of bossa nova singer Wilson Simonal, also made a splash with his album Samba Raro. Now Moreno Veloso, son of Tropicalia genius Caetano Veloso, is raising his voice. Veloso's CD (made with bandmates Domenico and Kassin) is no mere echo of his father; his inventive songs have a quiet, vernal charm all their own.
