songs from all periods of his career,
allowing his versatile singing voice
to dominate the cavernous concert
hall. Wry commentary often fol-
lowed the music and his charm was
immediately endearing. He played a
bossa nova rendition of the Beatles'
"When I'm 64" in honor of his own
64th year and stumbled gleefully
through McCartney's quintessen-
tially British lyrical take on grow-

A segment of the performance
was devoted to a bilingual rendi-
tion of "Nightingale" from his 19719
crossover album of the same title,
and he often spoke fondly of his fel-
low Tropicalistas, Caetano Veloso
and Jorge Ben. An inspired rendi-
tion of Bob Marley's "No Woman
No Cry" worked the crowd into a
frenzy at the close of his main set,
and a rapturous ovation ushered
him back onto the stage for an
inspired encore of classic Gil com-
positions. It was a night to bask in
Gil's genuine warmth and exquisite
songwriting.
