Album Review

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. The range of moods is astounding, from the tongue-twisting virtuosity of the opening "Baião Medley" and the playfulness of "O Bolo" to the heartbreaking strains of "Pra Dizer Adeus," "Docemente," and "Suas Mãos." Souza's voice, poised and attractive enough on its own, becomes a thing of transcendent beauty when matched with these sparse yet vibrant accompaniments. ~ David R. Adler, Rovi

Just Listen...

My boyfriend owns this album and I fell in love with it the minute he popped it into the stereo. Her voice is SO captivating and consistent. Very pleasant to listen to first thing on a sunday morning when your stomping aimlessly around the house. The tracks go from light and boppy, to sultry, to calm and melancholy... she knows her range and doesn't oversing the lyrics. Really beautiful sound.

Luciana, my love….

Best LP by far from the Brazilian songstress. Great vocals & range along with great sonics. I fell in love with this CD upon the first listen. Highly recommended for anyone with an audiophile setup.
