To celebrate the 25th anniversary of his first Carnegie Hall appearance, Milton Nascimento presented exactly what his many fans were hoping for: an evening filled with many of his greatest hits, including a few numbers he hadn't played live in quite a few years. “it is a blessing to play here," he declared in English halfway through the set, acknowledging the passing ...

It's not often that all-star groups assembled to honor a particular milestone manage to coalesce in a manner that transcends the novelty factor to become a satisfying listening experience.

Milton Nascimento with the Jobim Trio: Novas Bossas

Read "Novas Bossas" reviewed by David Rickert

Milton Nascimento Blue Note Jazz Club New York October 26, 2006

Returning to the Blue Note for only the second time in his long career, Brazilian-born Milton Nascimento played a memorable concert on the fourth day of his week-long residence there.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
