J. (that's pronounced "Jota", which Jota sometimes uses, the initial standing for a much longer name) Velloso -- producer, composer, and singer -- didn't follow the newer Brazilian orthography changes and simplify the spelling of his last name (per his uncle, Caetano), but he did follow his uncle (and aunt Maria Bethânia) into music.
Jota's productions include Batatinha's (Oscar da Penha) Diplomacia (released in 1998, with the participation of Maria Bethânia, Chico Buarque, Gilberto Gil, Caetano Veloso, Jussara Silveira, Nelson Rufino, Walmir Lima, Edil Pacheco, and Riachão); a CD of the cânticos of Salvador's beloved pai-de-santo Luís da Muriçoca; and Riachão's Humanenochun (with the participation of Carlinhos Brown, Dona Ivone Lara, Roque Ferreira, Tom Zé, Armandinho, Caetano Veloso, Sabiá, and Claudete Macedo). Jota was music director for Dona Edith do Prato's recording of sambas-de-roda, Vozes da Purificação.
His own releases are Aboio para um Rinocerante (with the participation of Caetano Veloso and Maria Bethânia), and J. Velloso and Os Cavaleiros de Jorge, replete with sambas, baiões, and xotes.
Jota's song Santo Antônio has practically become a Bahian standard, played by fanfarras wandering the streets during Carnival.
