iTunes Review

Brazilian vocalist Luciana Souza and her husband, bassist/producer Larry Klein, team up for a second time on 2009’s Tide. (The pair also collaborated on 2007’s The New Bossa Nova.) “Adeus America & Eu Quero Um Samba” contains a fusion of two songs by the Brazilian composer Haroldo Barbosa. Souza shows complete command as she gracefully darts and floats through the tune, and Romero Lubambo plays a fine acoustic guitar solo. Souza has set poetry to music before, and here she performs adaptations of two e. e. cummings poems, “Love — Poem 65” and the title cut. Gentle guitar and subtle organ nicely dapple the surface of these atmospheric pieces, both of which display the influence of Joni Mitchell. (Mitchell was previously married to and collaborated with Klein.) The uptempo “Sorriu Para Mim,” which showcases Souza’s scat work, along with the percussion of Cyro Baptista, makes for a nice contrast to those dreamy songs, while “Chuva” possesses one of the album’s lovelier melodies. Tide closes with Paul Simon’s “Amulet,” with Souza intoning a wordless melody as she is accompanied by Larry Koonse on guitar.

Customer Reviews


I was fortunate enough to turn on my radio while this beautiful sound filled me with a sense of joy and inspiration. After the track was over, much to my delight KPFK was interviewing the artist Luciana Souza. It was an hour that I will never forget. The music, the dialogue, the connection between the artist and the sound that was created is extraordinary. I couldn't wait to buy this album. The more I listen to the tracks the more I love them.


Not since Djavan or Bashia have I heard a Brazillan vocalist capture my ear with such a smooth voice. I love to impress my guests with new wine and new artists and Luciana Souza certainly fits the bill.

A consummate artist

Luciana is not only a great singer, she is a great musician, a composer and a writer. Do not pay attention to the "tabloïd-type" reviews. Check the 30 seconds sample of each track. You will not be disappointed.
