Bar Da Esquina Review

by Alvaro Neder

After having his CD Ao Vivo as one of the best sold in São Paulo, Jorge Aragão returns in his faithful samba approach. Surprisingly reaching newer generations with the pure language of the hills, the 50-year-old sambista brings new recordings for old hits, like "Coisinha Do Pai" (recorded by Beth Carvalho with huge success), "Vou Festejar" (idem), "Carnaval Globeleza 2" (carnival theme of the powerful national TV network), and newer themes, always singing the simple things of the life of the common Carioca of the streets, with Rio's bohemian corner bars and beers (even him being abstemious), accounting separations and celebrating friendships. An excellent samba release.
