Caetano Veloso is called the Bob Dylan of Brazil; it may be Dylan who’s flattered there.  At 67, Veloso continues to make music with the grace of a poet and the ebullience of a kid.  In recent years his sound has been reinvigorated by the sharp edges of his son Moreno, who coproduced Zii e Zie (Uncles and Aunts).  But the jagged rock and funk flair never buries Veloso’s deep roots in samba and bossa nova.  You won't hear a more stirringly beautiful postpunk tune than the opening “Perdeu.”
