As one of the most loved jazz vocalists, modern jazz heroines, and prolific vocalists, Rosemary Clooney gives a very beautiful and feminine side to Brazilian jazz on Brazil, a sensitive musical feeling of 16 ripe standards. This wonderful collection is dedicated to Antonio Carlos Jobim, Frank Sinatra, and Nelson Riddle through her amazing ambience of sensitive phrasing, lovely nuance, and splendid rhythmic shadings. Rosemary Clooney is joined by the lovely Diana Krall on "Boy from Ipanema" in a stunning vocal duet accompanied by Oscar Castro-Neves on guitar. John Pizzarelli sings "Wave," with the light, airy brilliance of a light kept burning throughout the night, and duets with Clooney on "Desafinado," "One Note Samba," "Let Go," "Dindi," and the reprise of the title track, "Brazil." Together they bring a redefined sensitivity and captivation to these Brazilian standards through their excellent harmony and melodic concepts. The songs included on Brazil display the musical integrity, wisdom, and depth of Rosemary Clooney on songs that have withstood the test of popular culture and time.
Brazil a refreshing album for people who like jazz vocals
This album will take you back to the first time you ever heard the rhythm of Bassa-Nova. Refreshing to hear the voice of Rosemary Clooney in a up to date version of these great songs.
Very good music and selection of songs it is worth it.... I love it
