Brazilian Duos songs Product Information
Brazilian Duos album for sale by Luciana Souza was released May 14, 2002 on the Sunny Side label. BRAZILIAN DUOS was nominated for the 2003 Grammy Awards for Best Jazz Vocal Album. Luciana Souza's well-received third record, Brazilian Duos, is a departure in two respects. First, the gifted vocalist is backed not by a jazz quartet, but rather by three different acoustic guitarists -- Romero Lubambo, Marco Pereira (playing eight-string), and Walter Santos (her father). Second, Souza turns away from original material and toward classic Brazilian songs by figures like Dori Caymmi, Luiz Gonzaga, Djavan, Jobim, Toninho Horta, and her parents, Walter Santos and Tereza Souza. ...See Full Description

Careless Love CD (2004) Top Seller
Brazilian Duos CD music Madeleine Peyroux's unique blend of jazz and pop was first unveiled on 1996's DREAMLAND, where she sounded like a postmodern heir to the smoky-voiced tradition that ran down from Billie Holiday through the likes of Karen Dalton and Judy Roderick. Though Peyroux made a splash with her debut, she quickly dropped out of the music scene, not to appear again until eight years later with the long-overdue follow-up, CARELESS LOVE.
Here, Peyroux tackles material from a variety of sources; some songs were written expressly for her by such contemporary songsmiths as Jesse Harris (who penned Norah Jones's breakthrough hit, "Don't Know Why"). Perhaps most striking, though, are her interpretations of older compositions. Peyroux redefines the darkly yearning Leonard Cohen tune "Dance Me to the End of Love" as a sultry invitation rather ...
|New Bossa Nova CD (2007)
Brazilian Duos buy CD music Singer Luciana Souza's blend of Brazilian pop and jazz takes a slightly unusual but very enchanting turn with NEW BOSSA NOVA. Produced by her husband Larry Klein (who's worked with Joni Mitchell and Peter Gabriel), Souza takes on a set of songs almost entirely by pop and rock artists. She lovingly remakes in her own image songs by the Beach Boys ("God Only Knows"), Sting ("When We Dance"), and Randy Newman ("Living Without You"). Special guest James Taylor appears, contributing vocals to his own "Never Die Young." Luciana Souza proves how adaptable bossa nova is to American pop, and vice versa, graciously advancing the form instead of merely preserving it.
Personnel: Luciana Souza (vocals); Romero Lubambo (cavaquinho); Chris Potter (tenor saxophone); Edward Simon (piano); Matt Moran (vibraphone); Scott Colley (bass guitar); Antonio Sanchez (drums).

|Poems of Elizabeth Bishop and Other Songs CD (2000) |
Brazilian Duos buy CD music Luciana Souza moves to the Sunnyside label for her second album, an ambitious project focusing on the poetry of Elizabeth Bishop (1911-1979). In all, four of Bishop's poems receive original musical treatments. But in a rather bold move, Souza includes two of her own song-poems, "Daze" and "Do Tell," which stand up quite well in comparison. Six more originals with wordless vocals complete the program. Souza's partners in this endeavor -- pianist Bruce Barth, saxophonist Chris Cheek, bassist John Lockwood, and drummer Marlon Browden -- do a superb job with her delicate but often quite difficult material. Barth and Souza go it alone on two of the Bishop poems, "Argument" and "Imber Nocturnus." "Sonnet," which opens the disc and returns as a reprise, has a surprising, almost Carole King-like pop-folk vibe. The remarkable "Insomnia" finds Souza involved in a bit of semi-vocalese, capturing the night imagery in the swooping, rapid play of syllables. Admirers of this record will be interested in hearing Souza on Andrew Rathbun's True Stories, a like-minded encounter with the poems of Margaret Atwood. ~ David R. Adler
