Velha Guarda Da Portela are a group of veteran musicians from one such institution, whose traditions have long been transmitted orally. Aware that this left them vulnerable to extinction, Brazilian MPB star Marisa Monte – whose father was a director of the Portela Samba School – decided to seek out, dust down and restore the finest songs in their repertoire, none of which had been recorded before. Tudo Azul is the result, augmented with four bonus tracks from two other albums recorded in 2001 and cut from a similar cloth
Portela is one of the oldest and most distinguished of all of the Rio samba schools. The Velha Guarda - or Old Guard - are the band who keep the tradition alive, and their latest set is produced by samba star Marisa Monte, whose father, Carlos, was a Portela director. It starts with the singer Monarco backed by the tiny cavaquinho as he sings Portela Since I Was Born (fans of samba schools are just as fervent as football supporters), before the rest of the band come on to play revivals of songs that are light and danceable, yet highly emotional

Velha Guarda rose to prominence in the 1960s. Quite why it has taken so long to put them on CD is unexplained, as there a wealth of great stuff here: from the melodic (Nascere Florescer) to the joyous (Sabia Cantador). Over the course of 22 songs, however, over-familiarity with the formula sets in (the cavaco guitar, the trombone solos, the choral harmonies). But if you close your eyes it could be carnival time, which is no bad thing.
