Brazilian music is universally admired these days, and with BOM DIA the brand NOIS 4 have created an album of such beauty and integrity that dissenters will be few and far between. This four piece apparently had no problem recording BOM DIA (pronounced "Bom Jeeaa") 'as live' over a long weekend, and though writing/arranging duties are shared among the collective, production detail fell to drummer and percussionist Chris Wells. Taking much of their material from such superstar composers as Antonio Carlos Jobim, Dorival Caymmi and Jackson Do Pandeiro, the album could have been a 'Greatest Hits' of Brazilian music, but the band have such a profound knowledge of the country's musical traditions that the obvious songs have been discarded in favour of overlooked gems.
