Claudio Nucci was a founding member of the Brazilian pop group Boca Livre, but left the band after their first album to pursue a solo career. He has often collaborated with his ex-Boca Livre bandmate Ze Renato... Here's a quick look at his career...
Boca Livre "Boca Livre" (Boca Livre, 1979)
Claudio Nucci "Claudio Nucci" (EMI-Odeon, 1981) (LP)
Claudio Nucci "Volta E Vai" (EMI-Odeon, 1983) (LP)
Claudio Nucci "Melhor De Tres" (EMI-Odeon, 1984)
Ze Renato & Claudio Nucci "Pelo Sim Pelo Nao" (CBS, 1985)
Zil "Zil" (Continental, 1987)
Horrible fusion-jazz, with lamentable debts to Milton Nascimento, Pat Metheny and various vocal harmony groups. It's a talented (or at least technically proficient) crew, including modern Braz-jazzers such as Claudio Nucci, Ze Renato, Ricardo Silveira and others... But it's just awful, pointless, blechhy music. Not my cup of tea.
Claudio Nucci & Nos E Voz "E Boi" (EMI-Odeon, 1995)
Claudio Nucci "Casa De Lua Cheia" (EMI-Odeon, 2000)
Claudio Nucci "Ao Mestre Com Carinho" (Lua Music, 2004)
An elegant -- if sometimes syrupy -- tribute to samba-cancao songwriter Dorival Caymmi... Mostly pretty nice!
