João Bosco


João Bosco

João Bosco de Freitas Mucci, better known as João Bosco is a famous Brazilian MPB singer, guitarist, and composer.

Born on July 13, 1946, in Ponte Nova, Minas Gerais, Joäo Bosco's profession was engineering when he moved to Rio de Janeiro, where his songs where recorded by Elis Regina and were a success. He soon became admired as a virtuoso vocalist himself, and a dynamic performer. Joäo Bosco has been noted for "his singular fusion between the Arab culture, Afro-American music and the Brazilian style bossa nova," influenced by American jazz. In the introduction to his three-volume "Songbook", Almir Chediak observes, "Brilliant composer João Bosco's melodic and harmonic constructions are among the most auspicious in Brazilian music." In the substantial article (in Portuguese), '"A obra de Joâo Bosco," Zuza Homem de Mello offers an appreciative analysis of Bosco's creative work (in Chediak, "Songbook", v. 2, noted below).

Notable compositions

* "O Bebado e A Equilibrista"
* "Papel Mache"
* "Corsário"
* "Kid Cavaquinho"
* "Latin Lover"
* "Jade"

Biographical references

Chediak, Almir, producer: "Songbook" (three volumes, third edition). Rio de Janeiro: Lumiar Editoria, 2003. Textual articles, photographs, musical notation (with lyrics) extend to about three-hundred pages. Generally only the melodic line is notated, supplimented the chord references. Guitar tablature appears as well. Precise rhythmic indication is a valuable feature, since Bosco is a master of rhythmic rubato.
