Caetano Veloso and David Byrne - Live At Carnegie Hall is an essential disc for fans of both artists as well as for anyone interested in the cross currents of alternative pop and world music. Informal and fun in spirit, the concert feels like a lively conversation between two extraordinary friends that we have been privileged to overhear. In their liner notes, the artists admit to a similar sense of awe. As Byrne confesses, "I was incredibly nervous, and I remember having flubbed on a chord or two (some of those remain on this recording, I'm afraid)...but of course it was Caetano, and Carnegie Hall, so I was also incredibly thrilled and flattered."
