He notes, however, that all the best qualities of MPB--its hybridity, its musical sophistication, and its passionate and infectious belief that popular music is a valuable part of what it means to be Brazilian--continue to animate music in any number of new or revitalized genres. For these and other reasons, this is an important work for all scholars and serious fans of Brazilian music. Bryan McCann Georgetown University Williams, Jerry R. In Pursuit of their Dreams: A History of Azorean Immigration to the United States.
