Album Notes
Danilo Brito’s group is national and international reference of Brazilian music and unique in the art of group playing, a rare feature in these days.
He and his ensemble are together in complete harmony, full of identity and, yet, communicative to all cultures, with a repertoire that spans a century and a half of tradition.
For this album Danilo Brito and his band present unreleased compositions by the mandolinist and contemporary composers and original interpretations of Villa-Lobos, Garoto, Jorge Santos and others.
Among the songs: Choro n.1 by Heitor Villa-Lobos, in an original interpretation, which Brito sought within the deep intentions of the composer; the choro Pisa Mansinho, by Jorge Santos, who was Waldir Azevedo's full of swing guitarist, a composition rarely recorded; the choro São Paraibaiano, which Brito, born in São Paulo, whose father was from Paraíba state and mother from Bahia, dedicates to his cultural mix; and the beautiful Las Fantasías waltz with warm and Latin inspiration.

More about the album Nature of Things

The album starts with Choro n.1 by Heitor Villa-Lobos, in an unprecedented and vigorous interpretation, unlike any version ever presented. An excellent beginning that already reveals balance and dynamics, taking advantage of all the resources of an ensemble of traditional Brazilian music and attentive to every detail, that will permeate the entire album.
Brito brings another touching interpretation of Villa-Lobos, Melodia Sentimental, in a version that reflects the soul of the serenades that only Brazil has, and which Villa-Lobos represented so much in his compositions.
Dama, a romantic composition by Danilo Brito, is considered by him to be very representative of the harmony of the ensemble. Opening three opposite voices, which complement each other perfectly, in melody and counterpoint, Danilo Brito (mandolin), Carlos Moura (7 string guitar) and Lucas Arantes (cavaquinho).
By Jorge Santos the ensemble brings Pisa Mansinho, a relatively unknown composition, although, as Danilo Brito says, it was the B side of the 78 RPM album that featured Pedacinhos do Céu, on side A, one of the biggest hits of the world famous Waldir Azevedo . In the version, a lot of Brazilian swing, with a curious dialogue of guitars and mandolin.
The waltz that names the album, Da Natureza das Coisas (About the nature of things), represents the essence of each thing, each person, without judgment, just as it is. It is an introspective song, composed in a dark room, in a moment of inspiration and concentration, revealing a feeling of living, joy, sadness, doubt, hope, in short, the complexity and simplicity of life.
The São Paraibaiano track is an inspiration of the rich mix of cultures that is the very essence of Brito. Born in São Paulo, having his father from Paraíba and his mother from Bahia, Danilo takes advantage of every Brazilian element with its peculiarities, cuisine, language, clothing, customs, all reflected in his music.
Another inspiration in its mix of cultures is the choro O Vulto de Pai Tão, a tribute to the grandfather of his father, Pai Tão (as he was affectionately called by the younger); whose stories tell of his deeds of brave man, strong personality, and as a wizard, capable of disappearing in the eyes of all.
Still in this mood, o Irmão do Outro, that was born together with São Paraibaiano, a choro with an absolutely irresistible rhythm, full of tricks, and a melody syncopating and floating through the groove of accompaniment.
The album also features two interpretations of Danilo Brito on tenor guitar, Jorge do Fusa, by the genius Garoto (Aníbal Augusto Sardinha), and Triste Saudade, composition by Lucas Arantes, dedicated to Brito, for the memory of his father, Democrito Brito, in which the author performs the cavaquinho melody, repeating the second part.
To end the album, the fast tempo waltz Las Fantasías performed by the trio Danilo Brito, mandolin, Carlos Moura, 7-string guitar and Guilherme Girardi, guitar, a fantasy ending to the album, a dream to stay with the listener.
