The opening night of a rare six-show American tour from the Brazilian tropicalismo legend Caetano Veloso is a very good reason to weather Terminal 5's charming, loading-dock-on-the-Death-Star vibe. Veloso, 67, comes with the young trio that has accompanied him on his last two albums, including the new Zii & Zie, his 41st, released in March. Draping samba beats with shimmering reverb and occasional Tortoise-like guitar minimalism is a becoming sound for Veloso, whose recent albums have been equally marked by sometimes restless movement and his ability to sound timeless no matter who he's playing with.
