This Brazilian singer/guitarist exploded into world consciousness nearly 50 years ago on early collaborations with Herbie Hancock (Courage) and Wayne Shorter (Native Dancer), and on his own albums during that time, which redefined Brazilian music beyond bossanova. Nascimento's unmistakable voice became the model for the trademark vocal lines of the Pat Metheny Group sound in the '80s and '90s. Pop stardom soon discovered him, as he recorded with Peter Gabriel, Paul Simon and Duran Duran among others. At age 72, he's still going strong on a worldwide tour in support of his latest album, Uma Travessia.
