About Celso Fonseca
A lot of music gets dubbed the dubious distinction of being timeless, but if any genre truly deserves to be timeless, it's Bossa Nova. Brazil's Celso Fonseca, perennial sideman, songwriter and sometime singer, is keeping Bossa Nova fresh for a new generation. Fonseca is no kid; he's played with almost everyone who counts: Gilberto Gil, Caetano Veloso, Gal Costa, and Chico Buarque, among others. That illustrious pedigree just signals his quality - it's really his delicate vocalizations and precise, humid arrangements that will win you over.
