"Repertoire of Renato Teixeira son CD explains sources and influences"

What draws the most attention on the album "Mais Que um Viajante", from Chico Teixeira, is the kind of bucolic sound, accompanied by guitar, viola and accordion, performed sensitively and competently. Also the fact the imaginary already know the themes of these songs, just the universe and the guitars and violas of aces like Almir Sater and Renato Teixeira, paves the way for the acceptance of this release that is targeted to a very specific segment: it is not for that idiotic public that likes the "music" said sertaneja, a marketing scam, but for a segment on the roots and staining medium hippie. In this mattern, beyond her own compositions, from whom the very things Almir and Renato, Chico included an emotional version of "Father and Son" (1970), the English Cat Stevens (now Yusuf Islam), a dialogue between father and son (Renato, father involved) who wants to leave in search of their own destiny, and it works as a metaphor for living Chico: being musician of his fathers band, now is working in a solo flight.
