Marisa Monte is one of the great female vocalists to emerge from MPB (Brazilian popular music), and this part-studio, part-live offering goes a long way in capturing all of the facets of her style, from the softer tones of ''Blanco'' to a rhythmic, energetic cover of George Harrison's ''Give Me Love (Give Me Peace on Earth).'' Monte is nothing if not eclectic, leaping from Caetano Veloso's wonderful ''De Noite Na Cama'' to the '50s Brazilian standard ''O Xote das Meninas.'' Sympathetic productio

In the 1950s, by harnessing the exuberant power of samba in gently plucked rhythms and his soft, intimate whispering of the lyrics, guitarist-singer-songwriter João Gilberto helped launch a musical revolution. While not its most important composer, Gilberto became bossa nova's premier interpreter. João, recorded in 1991, features him and his guitar backed by an orchestra (arranged by Clare Fischer) and shows a master in complete control of his craft and his powers. He navigates the lyrics with

This bargain-priced four-CD set presents itself as easy, event-based listening, with the CDs individually titled ''Wining,'' ''Dining,'' ''Dancing,'' and ''Romancing.'' A glimpse at the track list and personnel, however, immediately reveals that, much more than ''easy listening,'' it's an extraordinary collection of jazz performances culled from the Verve archives and including material from the label's classic and recent periods, as well as from subsidiary labels. The selection has been made wi

CD > BRAZILIAN MUSIC > BOSSA NOVA If Antonio Carlos Jobim is the compositional force behind the bossa nova, and jazz tenor saxophonist Stan Getz is its most eloquent American interpreter, then Joao Gilberto is its angelic voice. Since 1958, Gilberto's haunted and lyrical Brazilian-born Afro-Indian Portuguese has seduced generations with its sophistication and seductiveness. This CD, produced by Caetano Veloso, is Gilberto's first studio recording in nearly 10 years and it's well worth the wait.
